PS3 finally gets DTS-HD Master Audio support for Blu-ray

April 10th, 2008 · No Comments

The PlayStation 3 will finally get support for DTS-HD Master Audio on Blu-ray discs. The high-quality lossless audio format will become available to PS3 owners with a firmware update due April 15.
DTS-HD MA has long been favoured by Fox for its movie releases. With a bit-rate up to 24.5 Mbps, the system can deliver 7.1 channels of 96k/24-bit audio, equal to Studio masters.
Brian Towne, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the DTS Consumer Division, says: “We are extremely pleased that Sony Computer Entertainment is adding the full spectrum premium DTS-HD Master Audio codec into the PS3 so that more than 10 million owners of one of the best selling computer entertainment systems can have the best sounding, most efficient and flexible audio technology available as well.”
Teiji Yutaka, Senior Vice President for Sony Software Platform Development, adds: “PS3 was designed to enable delivery of new and improved technologies like DTS-HD Master Audio, so we are delighted to be able to offer this capability to PS3 users.”
