DTS launched its newest PC initiative, DTS Connect, designed to enhance the entertainment value of the PC platform.
DTS has formed strategic partnerships with C-Media Electronics Inc. and Realtek Semiconductor Corp., leaders in audio solutions for the PC platform, to offer DTS audio technologies with both companies' popular chip sets for PC motherboards, and PCI or USB soundcards.
A DTS Connect-enabled PC provides two audio benefits to the consumer: DTS Interactive(TM) and Neo:PC(TM), for both multi-channel and stereo content. Taking full advantage of the maximum data throughput of the digital interface, DTS Interactive provides a single cable connection via S/PDIF digital audio output to a DTS-enabled surround sound system by encoding all audio into a DTS-compatible bitstream at 1.5Mbps. Neo:PC, based upon DTS' Neo:6 matrix surround technology, transforms any stereo content such as MP3, WMA or CD audio, into a 7.1-channel surround sound experience.
