By : |September 13, 2013 0

AMSTERDAM: IBC 2013: DTS, Inc., a leading player in high-definition audio solutions and audio enhancement technologies, has announced that Elemental Technologies, a leading supplier of video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, and castLabs, a mobile video technologies and services company, will support live streaming of DTS-HD content through the MPEG-DASH format.

This will allow streaming of immersive DTS-HD for applications such as live sports and music events, a DTS release said.

DTS-HD is a high performance discrete audio codec designed specifically to enable streaming services to deliver content to consumers in immersive 5.1 surround sound. A universal adaptive streaming format, MPEG-DASH enables high-quality streaming of media content to Internet-connected TVs, set-top boxes, PCs and mobile devices.

Michael Stattman, CEO of castLabs said: “CastLabs is proud to work with Elemental Technologies and DTS on enabling the next level of bit rate-adapted, immersive video experiences, based on HEVC and DTS-HD Layered Audio, unleashing the full power of MPEG-DASH.”

Elemental Technologies will integrate DTS-HD via MPEG-DASH within Elemental® Live, its video processing system that provides real-time video and audio encoding for linear TV broadcast, as well as live streaming to new media platforms. castLabs will support playback of DTS audio technology in all major streaming formats and current generation (AVC/H.264) and next generation video formats (HEVC/H.265) on its Android and iOS players.

Aslam Khader, chief product officer for Elemental said: “Integrating DTS- via MPEG-DASH with Elemental products helps raise the quality bar while simplifying customer operations.” “This solution lets media customers and their consumers experience an exceptional level of audio quality regardless of the chosen viewing device.”

DTS will demonstrate how these integrations create an end-to-end solution-from content encoding and stream packaging to streaming playback on a tablet-at its IBC stand.
