DTS AutoStage Wins the Digital Entertainment Group’s Emerging Tech Award

DTS AutoStage has been recognized with the Digital Entertainment Group’s (DEG) EnTech Emerging Technology Award, representing a transformative leap in the way we experience entertainment within our vehicles. The platform seamlessly combines both linear and on-demand content for a unified, user-centric experience that’s truly revolutionary.

Revolutionizing In-Car Entertainment

The world of automotive entertainment is changing rapidly, and DTS AutoStage is leading the charge.  With 20% of content consumption trending toward video in the car1, DTS AutoStage is best positioned to create a truly immersive and personalized in-car entertainment experience beyond audio, seamlessly integrating radio, music, podcasts, TV shows, movies, games, and more.

One of the key trends driving DTS AutoStage’s success is the proliferation of multiple displays within vehicles and the emergence of various attention zones. With screens in the driver’s seat, co-driver’s seat, and passenger seats, there are more opportunities than ever for delivering entertainment through both audio and video. A Vision for the Future.

DTS AutoStage isn’t just about adding more entertainment options to your car. It’s about creating a seamless transition from your digital ecosystem at home to your vehicle and on the go. By anticipating your entertainment needs based on factors such as your content consumption history and real-time information from the vehicle’s sensors, DTS AutoStage ensures that your in-car entertainment is personalized, localized, and relevant for all vehicle occupants. For example, for families with children, DTS AutoStage can adjust content delivery for kids in the car, ensuring a fun and safe content consumption experience.  For drivers, DTS AutoStage can incorporate biometric data into its machine learning algorithms, responding to fluctuations in heart rate or breathing to provide a calming or stimulating experience, contributing to both entertainment and safety.
