MediaTek Will Deliver First DTS:X Solution in 2019


DTS, a subsidiary of Xperi Corp, and semiconductor company MediaTek have recently announced their collaboration to release the very first DTS:X SoC solution for TVs sometime in the second half of 2019.

The DTS:X TV solution is a DTS decoder for single and dual-core TV SoC architectures which is backward compatible with all DTS-encoded content such as DTS:X and DTS-HD Master Audio Blu-ray Discs.

“We’re excited to work with MediaTek to deliver the first DTS:X solution for TVs on its 4K UHD SoC chipsets. 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.”

The DTS:X SoC also comes with an immersive streaming decoder for OTT services such as the IMAX Enhanced immersive streaming codec for 4K IMAX Enhanced movies.

The solution also comes along with a DTS:X transcoder that can output DTS core over both S/PDIF and the audio return channel as well as a DTS:X lossless bitstream via the enhanced audio return channel to A/V receivers or soundbars. The company says their new solution is a must-have for the 2020 IMAX Enhanced program, and it has also been adopted in the Digital Video Broadcast (DVB) spec for Europe. 

TVs that feature DTS:X are perfectly compatible with any DTS content that can be connected to it via HDMI, USB and OTT streaming services.
