DTS, the specialist in high-definition audio solutions, has revealed that its DTS-HD codec has been selected by Paramount Pictures as a surround sound format for its UltraViolet Common File Format (CFF) catalogue. Paramount Pictures plans to deliver its catalogue of UltraViolet movies paired with immersive DTS soundtracks in the second half of 2013 upon launch of UltraViolet CFF.
“Since launching UltraViolet, we’ve made numerous enhancements to the user experience, and the introduction of CFF will continue that trajectory,” said Mark Teitell, general manager of the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE). “As a founder of DECE, DTS has been instrumental in developing CFF audio specifications that help enable a premium experience for CFF users, and this announcement is another key indicator of that promise now coming to market.”
“A good movie experience leaves a lasting impression on people,” said Amy Reinhard, executive vice president and general manager, Paramount Domestic Home Media Distribution. “By marrying our robust content library with DTS’ advanced surround sound technology, we can deliver a memorable cinematic surround sound experience for our customers at home, or on any UltraViolet-compatible connected device.”
