The partnership makes Sharp licensee incorporated DTS 2.0 Channel and DTS 2.0 + Digital Out in televisions, making them capable of delivering superb surround sound and stereo playback.

DTS believe the partnership will help put the television back into the center of the home entertainment experience. “From mobile phones to the latest TV innovations, our technologies create a high-quality entertainment experience that is both adaptable to the digital media ecosystem and supports content delivery across multiple screens”, said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer of DTS.

Sharp’s new network-connected PRC-model televisions integrated with DTS high-definition audio technology enable rich, high-definition audio to accompany high-quality digital content. DTS 2.0 + Digital Out decodes DTS encoded content for two-channel stereo playback directly from the TV, turning the device into a home entertainment media hub and offering an immersive audio experience without additional requirement of a digital media player or set-top box.

The DTS Digital Out also provides compatibility with external devices, such as an AV receiver or home theater system in order to deliver immersive surround sound for the ultimate movie watching experience.

“We’re dedicated to partnerships with leading manufacturers, such as Sharp, that continuously innovate their televisions to deliver cutting edge technology to provide consumers with a high-definition viewing experience and exceptional audio”, said Towne.
