DTS:X Master Audio is the only codec that offers truly 24-bit lossless and discrete immersive audio for Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray and other digital formats. It supports both high-channel count and multi-dimensional object-based audio coding while maintaining full backward compatibility with legacy DTS-HD and DTS Digital Surround devices, all within a single bitstream.



The DTS:X Encoder Suite offers a simplified workflow that makes it easy for users to perform full-file and segment-based encodes from a wide range of input formats, including PCM WAV, AIF, BWAV and object-based M2X. Edit and verify DTS bitstream files without the need for an additional encode pass.



In addition to support for next-generation, object-based and immersive DTS:X audio, the DTS:X Encoder Suite also provides new options for more efficiently coding DTS:X and DTS-HD Master Audio content to help reduce file sizes and bit rates. Included Peak Bitrate Analysis Graph provides detailed, data rate graphical analysis of the bitstream.



Includes DTS:X MediaPlayer for real-time playback of DTS:X and DTS-HD stream types synchronized with AVC and HEVC video at up to 4K resolutions. Native support of CFF, MOV, MP4 and VIDITY® file formats with frame accurate sync, random access seeking, the ability to monitor legacy downmix modes and interactive dialog options.
