Audio specialist DTS to improve sound of UltraViolet movies

US firm DTS has seen its surround sound technology chosen by several leading content solution providers for the creation of content in the UltraViolet Common File Format (CFF), enabling them build adaptive bitrate technology into the audio track.

DTS Express – a common audio format found on nearly all Blu-ray Disc movies – has been chosen by content solution providers including Digital Rapids, Elemental Technologies and Rovi to deliver surround sound experiences for content delivered via the UltraViolet digital locker platform, backed by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE).

“The industry’s development and phase-in of the UltraViolet Common File Format will bring substantial added benefits to UltraViolet users, and to the industry,” said Mark Teitell, general manager of the DECE. “DTS has been among the leaders in investing expertise and resources to help bring CFF to market.”
