DTS and Vestel Bring DTS:X® Immersive Audio to New Generation of Televisions

Customers will be able to experience DTS:X immersive audio directly from their TV

SAN JOSE, Calif.—September 23, 2021— DTS®, a global leader in next-generation audio, imaging and sensing technology and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”), today announced Vestel, the leading Turkish electronic company, has gained DTS:X® certification for their new range of televisions.

DTS:X for TV is a comprehensive immersive audio solution designed for single and dual-core TV SoC architectures and is fully backward compatible with all existing DTS-encoded content, including DTS:X and DTS-HD® Master Audio Blu-ray Discs and DTS Digital Surround. The solution also features the latest high-efficiency DTS:X immersive streaming decoder for streaming content from OTT services.

“We are proud to be one of the first European TV manufacturers certified for DTS:X” said Barış Altınkaya, deputy general manager of marketing and product management, Vestel. “At Vestel, we continuously strive to enhance TV sound quality, and with DTS:X, we can now further push the boundaries of what is possible to deliver a transformational, multi-dimensional surround sound experience, straight from the TVs themselves.”

“Bringing DTS:X to a mainstream television audience through our collaboration with Vestel is a landmark moment for immersive TV audio in Europe,” said Gabriel Cosgrave, general manager, EMEA, Xperi. “Millions more consumers now have the ability to experience fully immersive audio directly from their TV, meaning their home entertainment experience can truly come to life.”

Televisions featuring DTS:X are compatible with any DTS content connected to the TV from HDMI, USB and OTT streaming services. The solution includes a DTS:X transcoder capable of outputting DTS Digital Surround over S/PDIF and ARC (audio return channel) and can output a DTS:X lossless bitstream via eARC (enhanced audio return channel) to connected devices such as DTS:X-enabled A/V receivers or sound bars for a seamless DTS home entertainment experience. The DTS:X solution for TV is a must-have for the IMAX Enhanced program, and it has also been adopted in the Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) spec for Europe. DTS:X for TV is compatible with the DTS® Virtual:X™ audio post-processing solution to deliver the best possible audio experience from immersive content played over a TV’s internal speakers.
