DTS Audio Rides Digital Rapids, Embraced by IPTV

Digital Rapids encoding and transcoding products now support DTS and DTS-HD audio, a move that DTS Director of Professional Audio Ronny Katz says will allow Digital Rapids customers to effortlessly integrate DTS audio in everything from physical media to digital delivery.

The Digital Rapids products adding DTS support include Transcode Manager high-volume transcoding software and StreamZ and StreamZHD studio encoding systems.

DTS is also supported in the second release of the Open IPTV Forum standard, a move that will bring DTS audio to IPTV operations around the world.

“The consumer will now have higher-resolution audio and real surround sound together with HD,” says Geir Skaaden, VP of North American licensing operations for DTS. “We have the only solution that scales from lossless to efficiently compressed, so now operators will be able to maintain a lossless file and deliver DTS audio to multiple screens.”
