DTS Integrated Into UltraViolet11 Dec, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Digital Rapids, Elemental Technologies, Rovi and other content technology solution providers will include DTS’s Express sound technology when creating content for the UltraViolet common file format (CFF).
CFF allows for consistency of UltraViolet file downloads across retailers, applications and devices.
“The way the world consumes entertainment is rapidly evolving and UltraViolet is a great example of the kinds of services emerging from this shift,” said Brian Towne, chief operating officer and EVP at DTS. “While the content sources may be changing, the demands and expectations for quality are not, which is why we are thrilled to be working with content solutions providers to ensure that consumers receive the same high-quality DTS audio experience that they’ve come to know and demand, directly from UltraViolet-enabled content.”
Mark Teitell, GM of the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), the cross-industry consortium behind UltraViolet, added: “DTS has been among the leaders in investing expertise and resources to help bring CFF to market.”
DTS Express adapts for bit rate changes whether content is streamed or downloaded, allowing for no audio dropouts, clicks or pops, DTS said. Content creation suites that support CFF with DTS include Digital Rapids Transcode Manager 2.0, Elemental Server from Elemental Technologies and Rovi TotalCode.
