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 MOV and MP4 file formats with frame accurate sync, random access seeking and the ability to monitor legacy downmix modes and interactive dialog options.
