CALABASAS, Calif. -- January 24, 2013

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio technology, and
RGB Networks, the leading supplier of scalable multiscreen IP video delivery
solutions, today  announced  a collaboration between the two companies to
integrate DTS audio solutions into RGB’s multiscreen IP video delivery
products. Initially deployed on RGB’s TransAct Encoder/Transcoder, the joint
solution now enables broadcasters and video service providers (VSPs) to
distribute high definition audio across consumers’ portable devices and
set-top boxes.

With the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act passed to
prevent loud commercials, video delivery platforms must meet these and other
loudness control standards globally on multiple devices. DTS audio solutions
control and match content loudness without compromising sound quality,
delivering a consistent, natural sound to support the multiscreen
entertainment experience. By implementing DTS loudness solutions, broadcasters
and VSPs can achieve compliance with the CALM Act and other governed loudness
targets worldwide, allowing consumers to enjoy content and programming without
having to worry about changing volume levels on their receivers during
commercial breaks.

“The amount of entertainment content being consumed on video-enabled devices —
large and small — is growing rapidly,” said Ramin Farassat, vice president,
product marketing and business development for RGB Networks. “We are excited
to be able to meet the needs of our customers by expanding our relationship
with DTS to ensure that our multiscreen products deliver a high-quality audio
entertainment experience free of loudness irregularities across all screens.”

A key component of RGB’s eVIA family of IP video products, the TransAct
Encoder/Transcoder offers a highly flexible solution for a variety of encoding
and transcoding applications and leverages a next-generation compression
engine capable of pristine video quality at very low bitrates. With integrated
DTS loudness control, the TransAct Encoder/Transcoder achieves unparalleled
audio performance free of volume inconsistencies during commercial breaks.

“We recognize that consumers want to watch their favorite programs and movies
at their convenience, which is why DTS is committed to ensuring that consumers
receive a high-quality experience regardless of the kind of device they choose
to watch on,”  stated Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief
operating officer at DTS, Inc. “We are excited to be working with RGB Networks
to implement DTS technologies into RGB’s video platforms as this enables us to
deliver on our commitment to a high-quality multiscreen experience.”
