DTS and Adobe Address Rising Demand Among Professionals for High-Definition Audio Authoring Tools
2012 NAB Show
LAS VEGAS — DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio technology, today announced Adobe Systems Incorporated has integrated DTS audio technology to enhance the upcoming release of Adobe® Encore® CS6 software, the latest 64-bit version of the disc authoring software tool designed for video professionals, which is included with Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 and Adobe CS6 Production Premium. The software’s integration of DTS-HD Master Audio™, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio™ and DTS Digital Surround™ technologies enables users to publish Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD disc images with up to 5.1 channels of surround sound for an immersive audio experience and condensed audio file size, which increases multi-device compatibility.
We believe our customers should have access to content creation tools of the highest quality, so we extended our collaboration with DTS to offer the most comprehensive authoring toolset by including the industry’s Blu-ray Disc™ audio technology standard,” said Bill Roberts, director of product management, digital video and audio at Adobe. “We’ve seen an increased demand for DTS support and functionality from our professional users and are committed to meeting that need across our product lines to ensure our customers can leverage the best possible audio solution available.”
The upcoming release of Adobe Encore CS6 will be optimized for DTS’ core audio technologies, for an immersive sound that brings high-definition (HD) visuals to life and enhances the movie-watching experience on any platform.
• DTS-HD Master Audio, the premium audio format, 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 accurately represents the master recording.
• DTS-HD High Resolution Audio delivers a high-caliber audio experience as an alternative to DTS-HD Master Audio. Most notably, this technology offers professionals a solution for projects that do not have space for multiple variable bit-rate streams.
• DTS Digital Surround technology allows up to 5.1 channels of output and is backwards compatible ensuring playback on existing devices.
Ronny Katz, director of digital media at DTS, Inc., added, “Adobe is able to satisfy a growing demand for HD audio authoring by including DTS audio solutions into its upcoming release of Adobe Encore CS6, enabling professionals to enhance HD video with rich, vivid surround sound. ”
At NAB 2012, Adobe is revealing the Creative Suite 6 video tools, which are expected to ship in the first half of 2012.
