The Leader In Blu-ray

DTS-HD Master Audio, the premium high definition format for all applications, utilizes variable bit-rate technology to deliver the ultimate audio quality, while conserving file size and bandwidth. The result is an uncompromised audio experience that brings movies, music and games to life, just as if you were in the studio listening to the master recording.

Another feature of DTS-HD Master Audio is its non-redundant structure, which in turn allows for more streamlined production. DTS-HD Master Audio technology carries one encode and one QC pass versus two for competing technologies, allowing quicker workflow and better quality.

Because DTS-HD Master Audio is bit-for bit identical to the studio master, it can also be used as an archival or mezzanine format, with significant file size savings over PCM source and the ability to store metadata. DTS-HD Master Audio is an industry standard and the only “one-stream” surround audio solution for Blu-ray disc, making it the overwhelming choice of the major studios and content providers worldwide.

  • DTS-HD Master Audio can be used as the sole audio codec, ensuring the highest audio quality for Blu-ray disc.
  • The savings in data and bandwidth enables content creators to increase video quality, add alternate languages, special features or other added value material.
  • Backward compatible with legacy playback devices at up to 1509 kbps.
  • Up to 7.1 discrete channels at 96 kHz and up to 5.1 channels at 192 kHz.
