DTS has launched its newest PC initiative, DTS Connect, designed to enhance the entertainment value of the PC platform. DTS has formed strategic partnerships with C-Media Electronics Inc. and Realtek Semiconductor Corp. to offer DTS audio technologies with both companies' popular chip sets for PC motherboards, and PCI or USB soundcards.
A DTS Connect-enabled PC provides two audio benefits to the consumer: DTS Interactive and Neo:PC, for both multi-channel and stereo content. DTS Interactive provides a single cable connection via S/PDIF digital audio output to a DTS-enabled surround sound system by encoding all audio into a DTS-compatible bitstream at 1.5Mbps. Neo:PC, based upon DTS Neo:6 matrix surround technology, transforms any stereo content such as MP3, WMA or CD audio, into 7.1-channel surround sound.
