 DTS, a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”) and MediaTek announced their collaboration to release the first DTS:X® System-on-Chip (SoC) solution for TVs in the second half of 2019.

The new DTS:X TV solution is an efficient DTS decoder designed for single and dual-core TV SoC architectures and is backward compatible with all DTS-encoded content, including DTS:X and DTS-HD Master Audio Blu-ray Discs. The technology also features a new, efficient DTS:X immersive streaming decoder for OTT services and is specified as the IMAX® Enhanced program immersive streaming codec for 4K IMAX Enhanced movies.

“We’re excited to work with MediaTek to deliver the first DTS:X solution for TVs on its 4K UHD SoC chipsets,” said Joanna Skrdlant, General Manager, Home Audio at Xperi. “We successfully launched DTS Virtual:X for TV together this past year, and we look forward to enabling DTS:X for TVs with MediaTek in 2019 to deliver a seamless, premium home entertainment experience for our mutual TV customers.”

“After DTS Virtual:X, we are pleased to work with Xperi again and to integrate DTS:X technology into MediaTek TV SoC’s.” said Mike Chang, Corporate Vice President, Head of Smart Home Business Group, MediaTek. “Together with new DTS:X support, our TV SoC solution with cutting-edge video and PQ engine will offer a more vivid, immersive viewing and listening experience for home entertainment.”

Televisions featuring DTS:X are compatible with any DTS content connected to the TV from HDMI, USB and OTT streaming services. The solution includes a DTS:X transcoder capable of outputting DTS core over S/PDIF and ARC (audio return channel) and can output a DTS:X lossless bitstream via enhanced audio return channel (eARC) to connected devices such as DTS:X-enabled A/V receivers or sound bars to achieve a seamless DTS home entertainment ecosystem. The DTS:X solution for TV is a must-have for the 2020 IMAX Enhanced program, and it has also been adopted in the Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) spec for Europe. DTS:X for TV is compatible with the DTS® Virtual:X™ audio post-processing solution to deliver the best possible audio experience from immersive content played over a TV’s internal speakers.
