Henninger Vision, one of the nation’s leading providers of new media, Internet and interactive services and solutions, and supplier of surround music in the DVD-Audio format, has completed an exclusive DVD-Audio sampler disc for DTS Entertainment. Created to demonstrate the high-resolution sound quality of this new DVD format, the sampler disc features distinctive 5.1 remixes of various titles by legendary artists such as Olivia Newton John, Les Brown and his Band of Renown, the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Paul Gilbert, the Gluey Brothers, David Alan, Toy Matinee, Steve Stevens and Tchaikovsky.
“The 5.1 surround experience has already dramatically enhanced millions of home theater living rooms,” said Tom McCarthy, Henninger’s director of DVD services. “This 5.1 music remix for DTS Entertainment was a great project to be a part of. The artists’ amazing compositions ‘come to life’ like neverbefore.”
“Much of the success of the DVD-Video format is directly tied to the ability to deliver a theater-like experience via high-quality 5.1 surround soundtracks,” explained David DelGrosso, VP of marketing for DTS Entertainment. “But ‘home theater’ is only the ‘tip of the iceberg’ for 5.1 surround, as the new DVD-Audio format begins to pave the way for a similar market explosion for the record industry. And, working with the creative and technical expertise of the Henninger Vision team helped make this all possible. We look forward to working with them on other similar projects in the future.”
This new DVD-Audio sampler offers 5.1 music tracks in Advanced-Resolution MLP, plus DTS 96kHz/24-bit tracks (as well as 2-channel stereo tracks) of these popular artists; the disc is compatible with all DVD-Audio and DVD-Video players. The disc is being made available to select retailers who choose to demonstrate the exceptional sound quality of the DVD-Audio format.
