DTS 5.1-Channel Surround Sound Now Supported By Pixeltools’ Transmux Software for Cinema Pre-Show and Alternative Content
DTS, Inc. (NASDAQ: DTSI) and PixelTools Corporation, Inc. have announced that PixelTools TransMux software now supports DTS Coherent Acoustics multi-channel audio. This development allows customers to easily multiplex MPEG video content at any resolution with DTS 5.1 channel surround sound for cinema pre-show and alternative content. The recent announcement marks the first commercially-available, off-the-shelf software product to offer this capability.
The incorporation of DTS multi-channel audio in the TransMux software is another result of DTS’ ongoing initiative to introduce new cinema services and technologies that benefit the industry.
DTS customers will use the updated software to quickly and easily create pre-show advertisements, policy trailers and theatrical trailers for the cinema in high-definition video quality with high quality DTS surround sound. It also allows a simple all-in-one process for content ingest preparation, delivery and screening, and integrates easily with the new DTS Cinema Media Network™.
“The incorporation of DTS technology into the PixelTools TransMux enhances cinema-goers’ pre-show experience by incorporating high quality surround sound that encourages greater recognition and retention of advertisements, trailers and other pre-show content,” said Don Bird, Senior Vice President, Cinema Division at DTS. “We’re proud of the joint efforts of DTS and PixelTools software engineers in enabling this valuable tool.”
PixelTools TransMux is a Microsoft Windows® based encoding application that multiplexes (combines) multiple MPEG video or audio streams into a fully synchronized high definition or standard definition MPEG-2 program. TransMux can also de-multiplex MPEG streams into their elementary components. When combined with DTS Coherent Acoustics it forms a high definition transport stream for use in HDTV desktop, video-on-demand, streaming or HDTV systems.
