DTS-HD Is the Only Surround Option for One Major Studios' UltraViolet Catalog

And that studio is Paramount.

From DTS, "DTS—a leader in high-definition audio solutions—will make an UltraViolet™ partnership announcement that will offer a major studio’s entire catalog in DTS-HD surround sound."

Discerning readers will note that DTS-HD is not the same as DTS-HD-MA, and in fact is designed with adaptive bit rate in order to handle typical bandwidth conditions for mobile internet devices. Several other studios are already sporting Dolby Digital Plus, and the two formats while comparable will likely continue to vie for digital audio dominance.

"According to ABI Research, by 2018, UltraViolet accounts will exceed 65 million worldwide; up from today’s estimated 8 million accounts. Part of this growth can be attributed to technology partners like DTS that are providing efficient and scalable digital delivery solutions that ensure a high quality, seamless and exciting entertainment experience, regardless of the device."

More details to follow.
