DTS, the leader in high definition (HD) audio technology, is exhibiting at IPTV World Forum 2011, from March 22-24, Olympia, London Meeting Room: MR4, showcasing its innovative technology as the premier HD audio solution for IP delivery.

DTS’ rich legacy in HD audio and advances in audio quality for IP delivery are becoming more important as consumers increasingly demand an enriched audio experience in their home entertainment, rivaling in some cases, the HD quality of Blu-ray™. Advances in audio codec systems mean that consumers can enjoy IP video with advanced surround sound technologies on their home theatre system. DTS’ audio technology adapts to the platform and bandwidth, enabling the delivery of the highest-possible audio quality, automatically tailored to the end user’s hardware capabilities—be it PC, mobile or TV—ensuring that no matter what the sound system, the consumer experience is totally immersive and engaging.

DTS is working with IPTV content providers such as Orange France, Free and Roxio Now/Sonic Solutions to integrate DTS surround sound technologies into its latest IPTV services, as well as supporting industry standards in the connected entertainment ecosystem such as DLNA and Open IPTV. Paving the way for HD audio in IP-connected products in the home and on the move, DTS is rapidly becoming a household name in the IP entertainment space—integrated into groundbreaking products such as the Revolution from Freebox.

“The IPTV consumer experience is evolving quickly and DTS is excited to be on the forefront of the industry, accelerating audio quality and enhancing users’ home entertainment experience,” noted Ted Laverty, director of worldwide licensing broadcast, DTS. “Because sound matters to consumers, we’re proud to help companies such as Freebox deliver the highest quality entertainment experience possible to its customers.”

Earlier this month, the company showcased pioneering HD audio technology for IPTV as part of the Webinar “ No Sense Without Sound: How Scalable Audio Solutions Complete the Picture <> .” Hosted by Laverty, the session gave an overview of the most recent advances in HD audio technology for IPTV.
