CALABASAS, Calif. -- May 07, 2013
DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and
audio enhancement technologies, today announced that Rovi-enabled digital
video entertainment storefronts will soon be pairing their movie and TV show
libraries with powerful DTS-HD® surround sound. Samsung’s 2013 connected TVs
and Blu-ray players will be the first products to benefit from streaming
DTS-HD encoded content.
DTS-HD is a high performance discrete audio codec designed specifically to
enable streaming services to deliver content to consumers in immersive 5.1
“Streaming has a very bright future and we are excited about collaborating
with Samsung, Rovi and the services it powers—such as Best Buy’s CinemaNow—to
deliver an unrivaled audio experience to consumers,” said Brian Towne, chief
operating officer and executive vice president at DTS. “We are committed to
delivering the industry’s most immersive streaming audio solutions, and
believe that consumers will appreciate the engaging entertainment experience
that DTS-HD surround sound brings to their living rooms.”
Shipping on newly produced 2013 models of Samsung’s connected products and
soon available as a firmware update to existing 2013 Samsung products, the
Best Buy CinemaNow app—a platform enabled by RoviEntertainment Store, a
leading technology solution that powers the creation, distribution, discovery,
and enjoyment of entertainment at-home or on-the-go—is the first service to
offer customers access to DTS-HD encoded content. DTS is currently working
with other Rovi-enabled streaming video services to provide their customers
with the added entertainment value of DTS-HD surround sound.
