~ Upgraded Software Provides Dramatic Speed Increase and New Encoding Modes for Digital Delivery ~
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS â”€ DTS, Inc. (NASDAQ: DTSI), a digital technology company dedicated to delivering the ultimate entertainment experience, is offering exhibitors an exclusive preview of the upcoming version of its popular audio software, DTS-HD Master Audio Suiteâ„¢ v2.6 (MAS v2.6), on the IBC show floor (Stand 2.B50).
DTS-HD Master Audio Suite v2.6 adds a series of new encode modes, signifying a leap forward in the world of digital delivery services. Building on the success of DTS-HD Master Audio Suite tools in Blu-rayÂ®, this version advances DTS-HDÂ® technology in the digital download/streaming space, offering new stream types and additional bit-rates, including the bandwidth-adaptive DTS Expressâ„¢ encode format.
â€œThe new DTS Express encode modes provide a astoundingly excellent audio experience at low bit-rates that flex and scale to meet bandwidth constraints,â€? says Ronny Katz, Director, Professional Audio, DTS, Inc. â€œWith DTS technologies integrated into content delivery ecosystems such as Sonicâ€™s RoxioNow, and in preparation for the UltraViolet (formerly DECE) consumer launch, MAS v2.6 provides new capabilities to meet the changing needs of our customers.â€?
Another significant upgrade to DTS-HD Master Audio Suite v2.6 is the dramatic increase to encoding speed, clocking in at up to 48 times faster than real-time (based on 12 CPU cores running multiple simultaneous encodes). This new multi-processor speed increase combined with existing folder-based encoding, auto-import, and auto-verification features, make DTS-HD Master Audio Suite v2.6 one of the fastest and most efficient stand-alone audio encoding solutions available.
DTS-HD Master Audio Suite v2.6, is listed at $1495 and is scheduled to ship Q4 2010.
