DTS Delivers Winning Surround Sound for Global Super Bowl Telecast
DTS Neural Surround technology will be integrated into the NFL international HD broadcast of Super Bowl XLVI, live from Indianapolis. For the fifth consecutive year, DTS and the NFL will provide television viewers across the globe the opportunity to experience the game in full 5.1 surround sound.
“111 million viewers tuned into the 2011 Super Bowl, and with every year, more attention and emphasis is placed on delivering an engaging and uncompromised audio experience for sports fans,” says Jon Kirchner, Chairman and CEO of DTS, Inc. “With DTS Neural Surround, the crash of helmets and pads will extend right into the living room. We’re pleased once again to team with the NFL and our industry partners to bring the most immersive, multi-dimensional audio experience possible to worldwide audiences on game day.
DTS Neural Surround provides a new approach to surround sound broadcast productions, enabling a seamless conversion between stereo and surround sound audio through a special capture, edit, management, and delivery process. Integrated into hardware by DaySequerra, DTS Neural Surround allows broadcast production teams to preserve the integrity of the 5.1 surround mix while transmitting audio in a stereo format at the highest resolution possible. The technology supports legacy audio codecs and is a low latency solution for editing and monitoring in stereo.
Super Bowl XLVI, hosted at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, will air on Sunday, Feb. 5, to more than 180 countries and territories in 25 different languages.
