DTS-HD® Decoding For UltraViolet™ Content To Be Featured in CyberLink
DTS-HD Will Unlock the Full Potential of High-Resolution Downloaded Video
Content by Pairing it with Powerful Multi-Channel Surround Sound
CALABASAS, Calif. -- October 22, 2013
DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq:DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and audio
enhancement technologies, today announced that CyberLink’s popular media
player, PowerDVD 13, will add support for UltraViolet™ Common File Format
(CFF) content encoded in DTS-HD. CyberLink is working closely with DTS to
optimize PowerDVD to deliver the same immersive 7.1 channel surround sound
environment for UltraViolet content, that is currently available when enjoying
DTS-HD encoded Blu-ray™ Discs and DVDs on PowerDVD.
“How we consume media entertainment is constantly evolving so it’s essential
that we keep PowerDVD up-to-date with the latest developments to ensure that
our customers enjoy the best possible playback experience,” said Alice H.
Chang, CEO of CyberLink. “One of PowerDVD’s key strengths is its compatibility
with a vast array of formats and we’re excited to be working with DTS to bring
the advanced audio technology of DTS-HD to our customers who watch UltraViolet
content on PowerDVD.”
DTS-HD technology is designed to deliver an unsurpassed immersive surround
sound listening environment—up to 7.1 channels—from streamed and downloaded
content, including new UltraViolet CFF content, as well as from DVDs or
Blu-ray™ Discs. The advanced audio quality provides sound that is exactly as
the creator intended it to be heard.
“Today, PCs continue to play a key role in the consumption of entertainment
content,” said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating
officer at DTS. “CyberLink’s PowerDVD media player has long stood as a popular
choice for enjoying physical media on PCs; by upgrading to DTS-HD® surround
sound on UltraViolet content, CyberLink’s customers will soon be able to enjoy
the same immersive DTS audio experience found on DVDs and Blu-ray, on
UltraViolet CFF content.”
