ATEME transcoders integrate DTS technology

DTS has agreed to integrate its Neural Surround technology into ATEME’s TITAN range of video transcoders, enabling surround sound in the latest generation of IPTV, OTT and VOD services. “As television viewing habits evolve, we continue to respond to market trends and direct customer demand to deliver an immersive, high-quality audio experience,” noted Rémi Beaudouin, director of Product Marketing, ATEME. “By incorporating DTS technologies into our TITAN transcoders, we dramatically simplify broadcasters workflows; combining DTS high definition audio with our unrivalled video quality is now a one click process.” DTS Neural Surround enables a conversion between stereo and surround sound audio through a capture, edit, management and delivery process, enabling broadcast production teams to preserve the integrity of the surround mix while transmitting in a stereo format at the highest possible resolution. DTS Neural Surround UpMix technology can output 5.1 or 7.1 multi-channel surround sound from stereo or 5.1 source material, while DTS Neural Surround DownMix technology can output stereo or 5.1 content from 5.1 or 7.1 multi-channel source audio. DTS Neural Surround supports legacy audio codecs, such as MPEG, and is a low latency solution that can be edited and monitored in stereo. “At DTS, we recognise the paradigm shift in how consumers are interacting with digital media content and are dedicated to partnering with innovative companies, such as ATEME, that adapt to new delivery formats in order to provide high-definition audio to consumers for brilliant streaming media, gaming and TV viewing,” said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer of DTS.
