Sound technology company DTS is celebrating its 20th anniversary with giveaways across its social media sites, offering a Yamaha soundbar, a Toshiba tablet, Jurassic Park Blu-ray Discs (the first film to introduce DTS sound) and more.
DTS is also marking the fifth year the state of California has marked July 1 “DTS 7.1 Day.”
“These last 20 years at DTS have been a tremendous experience, and I can’t wait to see what the next 20 years will bring,” said Jon Kirchner, chairman and CEO for DTS. “In the course of the past two decades, DTS witnessed the [consumer electronics] and entertainment industries undergo several substantial changes, including the shift from film to digital cinema, the Internet boom, the rise of Blu-ray, the rapid evolution of processing power in CE products, streaming media, social media and the transition to digital content consumption.
“Embracing the many changes that span the industries in which we do business, DTS is still here and stronger than ever, proving that sound matters.”
First founded in 1993, DTS started off with 46 patents. Today it holds nearly 700. By 2003, DTS audio technology was included in more than 200 million consumer electronics products. As of 2013, 85% of Blu-rays carry the company’s sound technology.
