DTS® (Digital Theater Systems) Formats
DTS® offers premium sound quality with optimal channel separation and sound quality. Like Dolby® Digital, standard DTS® is a discrete 5.1-channel system; however, it uses less compression. DTS® Neo:6 derives 6-channel sound from a stereo (2-channel) soundtrack. DTS offers two DTS®-ES™ (Extended Surround) formats: DTS®-ES™ Discrete 6.1, which provides a 6.1-channel system with a discrete back surround channel; and DTS®-ES™ Matrix 6.1, which provides a 6.1-channel system with a matrix-encoded back surround channel. DTS® 96/24 offers you the sound quality of the 96/24 master. This format can be encoded on DVD-Video or in the video zone of DVD-Audio, so it can be played on all DVD players.
