Blu-ray Discs. The technology also features a new, efficient DTS:X

Enhanced program immersive streaming codec for 4K IMAX Enhanced movies.
"We're excited to work with MediaTek to deliver the first DTS:X solution
for TVs on its 4K UHD SoC chipsets," said Joanna Skrdlant, General
Manager, Home Audio at Xperi. "We successfully launched DTS Virtual:X
for TV together this past year, and we look forward to enabling DTS:X
for TVs with MediaTek in 2019 to deliver a seamless, premium home
entertainment experience for our mutual TV customers."
"After DTS Virtual:X, we are pleased to work with Xperi again and to
integrate DTS:X technology into MediaTek TV SoC's," said Mike Chang,
Corporate Vice President, Head of Smart Home Business Group, MediaTek.
"Together with new DTS:X support, our TV SoC solution with cutting-edge
video and PQ engine will offer a more vivid, immersive viewing and
listening experience for home entertainment."
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 core over
S/PDIF and ARC (audio return channel) and can output a DTS:X lossless
bitstream via enhanced audio return channel (eARC) to connected devices
such as DTS:X-enabled A/V receivers or sound bars to achieve a seamless
DTS home entertainment ecosystem. The DTS:X solution for TV is a
must-have for the 2020 IMAX Enhanced program, and it has also been
adoped 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.
