Corel Announces DTS-HD Master Audio Support for InterVideo WinDVD HD/BD

Corel Corporation has announced that the NVIDIA version of InterVideo WinDVD BD/HD supports DTS-HD Master Audio from DTS. With DTS-HD Master Audio support, WinDVD provides true high-definition surround-sound that matches the crystal-clear HD quality of Blu-ray and HD DVD videos-at home or on the road.

Based on the DTS Coherent Acoustics coding system that is mandatory audio technology for both the Blu-ray disc and the HD DVD disc, DTS-HD Master Audio delivers audio at super-high variable bit rates that are significantly higher than standard DVDs-24.5 mega-bits per second on Blu-ray discs and 18.0 Mbps on HD-DVD. At these rates, users can enjoy 7.1 audio channels of lossless 96kHz/24-bit audio that is bit-for-bit identical to the original.

To ensure compatibility with existing DTS-enabled equipment such as home theater systems, DTS-HD Master Audio includes the DTS 1.5 Mbps core which not only enables users to downmix to 5.1 and two-channel support, it provides an instant upgrade in audio quality.
