Agoura Hills, CA (November 3, 2004)–DTS (Digital Theater Systems, Inc.) has completed the acquisition of QDesign Corporation, a Canadian audio delivery technology company, which is now formally DTS Canada ULC. Based in Vancouver, BC and already integrated into DTS’ ongoing activities, the DTS Canada ULC team will focus exclusively on product development, IP creation and Research & Development.
