DTS Audio Selected For Ceton Echo Media Center Extender
DTS and Ceton Corporation have announced a joint partnership to integrate DTS’s audio technology into the upcoming Ceton Echo, a Windows Media Center Extender. With DTS audio, the Ceton Echo will offer users a more immersive, high-definition sound experience on Internet video services, live and recorded TV services and personal digital media libraries supported by the Echo. Ceton Echo is expected to be available for sale later this year.
“Integrating DTS audio means our customers can experience immersive audio as they enjoy live and recorded TV, listen to music, surf the Web or stream media to any TV in their home,” said Gary Hammer, president and CEO of Ceton. Ceton Echo is compatible with standard or high-definition TVs with HDMI or composite video input.
Ceton Echo can work in conjunction with the Ceton Q entertainment gateway or Windows 7 PC to stream media to the user’s television. Using both Ceton Q or Windows 7 with an InfiniTV digital cable, users can extends their Ceton Echo to work with TV, DVR, digital entertainment services and personal media libraries from a Windows Media Center PC to other rooms in their home.
Ceton Echo with DTS technology allows for high quality surround sound by decoding DTS encoded content. It offers two-channel stereo playback directly from a digital television or via an external device such as an AV receiver or home theater system.
