Interra's Baton and Vega Professional Tools to support DTS-HD for IPTV, Broadcast, and Web-Connected Services

DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio, today announced a partnership with Interra Systems, a software products and service provider, unveiling plans to integrate DTS-HD audio codec support into Interra's digital media quality control and media analysis solutions. Baton and Vega will be the first Interra products to boast DTS integration, allowing digital media, content distributor, and broadcast companies to offer enterprise-class file validation when delivering content to multiple screens.

"Rooted in a mutual commitment to quality and compliance, this partnership with DTS will enable our customers to access high-efficiency analysis and verification of DTS-enabled content for seamless delivery to IPTV and connected CE devices," said Krishna Uppuluri, vice president of marketing at Interra Systems. "We look forward to working with DTS in deploying tools that ensure consumers' experiences are uncompromised, with the highest quality entertainment for any screen."

Consumers' increasing demand for enriched audio and video experiences on connected devices has translated into high volume file-based delivery. The addition of DTS codec support to Interra's Baton verification software for media content readiness and Vega audio/video analyzers for standards-compliant media content creation and distribution ensure opportunity expansion and operational efficiencies in today and tomorrow's file-based workflows. 

"DTS powers the next generation of digital entertainment with an extensive portfolio of audio technologies and end-to-end support throughout the content lifecycle. Our goal is to meet the needs of our partners in the digital media supply chain, while exceeding the expectations of connected consumers," said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer of DTS. "Adding Interra as the latest DTS licensee will allow companies to ensure proper encoding and standards compatibility, and speed time to market of DTS audio within any ecosystem."
