DTS has just announced the development of a system for delivering lossless digital soundtracks into movie theaters. According to DTS, with lossless technology, a soundtrack played in the cinema is bit-for-bit identical to the original master. DTS lossless technology works with all film specifications used in exhibition, including 16mm, 35mm, 70mm and any pulldown or frame rates, as well as digital pre-show, alternate content and digital cinema sources. Sampling rates include 44.1, 48, and 96 kHz at 16 to 24 bits.

The big hold-up with the new CD/DVD-Audio dual discs has been the physical thickness of the actual discs. In order to make the new CD compatible discs work in many older car audio CD decks, compromises have been made on the disc that are not true of individual DVD-Audio or CD discs. For example, because of the bonding process, the CD layer of the dual disc can now supposedly play only 60 minutes of content, as opposed to 74 minutes on a traditional red book CD. The DVD layer of the disc is what record industry technology geeks call a “DVD 5,” which is a single-layer DVD that is not capable of storing as much music and aftermarket goodies as a “DVD 9,” which is a dual disc DVD.
