DTS, Jargon Partner for 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc, Digital Compatibility17 Nov, 2015 By: Erik Gruenwedel
High-definition audio manufacturer DTS and authoring company Jargon Technologies Nov. 17 announced a partnership to include their respective technologies with Blu-ray Disc and Ultra HD Blu-ray authoring software.
Combined, these two innovations will help bring 4K Ultra HD audio and digital functionality to the Blu-ray Disc. 4K UHD is said to have four-times the clarity of 1080p resolution.
As the successor to the DTS-HD Master Audio Suite, the DTS:X Encoder delivers the ability to create both DTS-HD and next-generation DTS:X audio bitstreams.
The DTS BD Digital Bridge Tool Suite provides studios and production facilities the ability to make the media content on their physical Blu-ray Disc titles portable within the home network. This feature operates on select Ultra HD Blu-ray players for both Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray titles, allowing the consumer to export the media without any loss of quality to other electronic formats and devices.
“DTS has taken initiative in driving the Ultra HD Blu-ray format by creating a suite of tools for object-based audio encoding and the functionality of the Blu-ray specification,” Bhanu Srikanth, chief executive of Jargon Technologies, said in a statement.
Mark Johnson, SVP of media solutions at DTS, said digital bridge technologies help content authoring companies enhance both legacy and next-generation Blu-ray Discs.
“The combined bundle of Indigo Ultra and DTS tools represents the essential solution for Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D production, which will fulfill all the needs of our customers,” Johnson said.
