Super Bowl Goes Global in 5.1 Surround Sound with DTS

DTS Neural Surround Sound technology will be integrated into the NFL’s international HD broadcast of Super Bowl XLV from Dallas, enabling TV viewers around the world to experience the game in full 5.1 surround sound for the fourth consecutive year.

DTS Neural Surround Sound provides a new approach to surround sound productions, enabling networks to distribute 5.1 surround sound over a stereo transmission path. For Super Bowl XLV, television broadcast stations worldwide will transmit the signal carrying the DTS Neural Surround sound technology. This technology, integrated into hardware by DaySequerra, allows broadcast crews to produce the game in 5.1 and preserve the integrity of the surround mix while transmitting the game in a high-resolution stereo format.

“Providing the best sounding audio for the largest one-day broadcast event in the world is just another example of DTS’ dedication to creating the ultimate audio experience for home theaters,” said Jon Kirchner, CEO of DTS. “For fans that are unable to travel to Dallas to watch the Steelers and Packers, DTS wants to make the at-home Super Bowl listening experience as immersive and authentic as possible.”

Over 35 international broadcasters will televise Super Bowl XLV in more than 180 countries and territories. The game will be broadcast live in more than 30 languages, including 10 different languages from Cowboys Stadium.
