In celebration of the launch of the T.Rex Born to Boogie DVD, Sanctuary Records held a premiere at the Curzon Mayfair Cinema in London, on April 26th, featuring DTS 96/24 high-resolution audio playback. The special two-disc release consists of Ringo Starr's 1972 film Born to Boogie, the only two full concerts ever recorded with T.Rex, and a wealth of extra material.
The screening of this concert’s rare and sometimes unseen footage in DTS 96/24, which offers multi-channel audio on DVD-Video, was delivered via the XD10 Cinema Media Player, DTS' latest cinema technology for high definition audio and video playback.
The recently rediscovered, original analog audio master tapes of Born to Boogie were remastered by music producer Tony Visconti, and subsequently encoded by Sanctuary Post into DTS 96/24. The resulting DVD was screened at the Curzon Mayfair Cinema event through the XD10 Cinema Media Player, allowing the audience to experience this legendary sound almost as well as if they were part of the 10,000-member audience present at the live concert 33 years ago.
The DVD also features a DTS 96/24 soundtrack, allowing consumers with DTS-enabled home entertainment systems to experience the concert movie in surround sound. The DVD will be released on 16 May 2005.
