JVC, the inventor of the VHS video format, recently announced the completion of technical specifications to enable authoring of DTS® sound on its D-VHS D-Theater high definition prerecorded video software platform as an optional sound system in addition to mandatory Dolby Digital and MPEG Audio (MPEG-1/layer 2). The D-VHS D-Theater platform incorporates a proprietary encryption system to prevent the unauthorized duplication of high value content.

Bose Corporation has filed suit in the United States Patent and Trademark Office to cancel CEDIA’s four federal trademark registrations for its mark “Electronic Lifestyles®.” CEDIA began using “Electronic Lifestyles” in 1995 in connection with the association’s non-profit activities.
