Amsterdam, The Netherlands - 6th of April, 2014

Real-time DTS Layered Audio Stream Reconstruction to support HLS and Microsoft Smooth Streaming

Amterdam, The Netherlands (April 6, 2014) – Unified Streaming, a leading provider of cross-platform video streaming technologies and DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions, announced today an extension of their existing partnership incorporating the DTS-HD Layered Audio solution into the Unified Streaming Platform to encompass support for HLS and Microsoft Smooth Streaming.

At NAB 2013, Unified Streaming and DTS announced their first collaboration involving DTS-HD Layered Audio, specifically for MPEG-DASH. With the addition of support for real-time DTS Layered Audio Stream Reconstruction, DTS’s efficient adaptive bit-rate solution can now be applied to all three of the most widely used streaming protocols.

“DTS-HD Layered Audio was designed to address the inherent issues with traditional multi-encode adaptive bit-rate audio streaming solutions,” said Mark Johnson, Vice President of Streaming and Media Solutions, DTS. “By maintaining DTS’ efficient single-encode approach and being able to extract several quality layers out of that encode, DTS-HD Layered Audio empowers streaming services to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver a seamless, scalable audio experience, even in challenging broadband conditions, to any device or software featuring a DTS-HD decoder, all from a single file.”

“We're excited to be the first to incorporate DTS Layered Audio Stream Reconstruction, it is a unique and innovative approach to adaptive bit rate audio ," said Arjen Wagenaar, CTO of Unified Streaming. “Such an elegant solution was an obvious fit for our products whose primary purpose is to easily deliver adaptive streaming.”

To experience DTS-HD Layered Audio and the Unified Streaming Platform, please visit the DTS booth at NAB 2014, taking place April 7-10, 2014 in Las Vegas – booth #SU4414.
