Houston, TX (November 1, 2007)--Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) has announced that its audio digital signal processors (DSPs) are the first embedded implementation approved with DTS-HD Master Audio at 192kHz for home theater systems.
Audio/video receivers (AVRs) based on TI's DA7xx generation of DSPs have the power to fully support eight channels of 192kHz lossless audio that is bit-for-bit identical to the original audio source. With the full certification of DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-LBR (Low Bit Rate), DA7xx DSPs are the first audio processors approved for both DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD, and can support all audio formats present on next-generation HD DVD and Blu-ray discs.
"The consumer electronics industry continues to demand the highest quality surround sound in home theater systems," said Brian Towne, senior vice president and general manager, DTS. "With TI's DSP-based A/V receivers that are DTS-HD certified, consumers will now have unprecedented audio that matches high-definition video images for a truly all-encompassing HD home theater experience."
