Lionsgate Films will exhibit several upcoming films in the innovative DTS:X immersive audio format, including new releases American Ultra, Sicario (September 18), and Mockingjay: Part 2 (November 13).
The films are mixed using the DTS MDA Creator Tool, DTS’s license fee-free, open platform for the creation of object-based immersive audio, and will be exhibited in select DTS:X-equipped theaters in the U.S. The Muvico 14 in Thousand Oaks, CA, is the first to feature DTS:X sound.
The DTS:X licensing program in cinema will offer theater owners the opportunity to provide their audiences with the most compelling, immersive sound experience possible. This can be achieved for almost any room configuration by installing DTS:X-approved equipment and working with the recommended speaker installation guidelines.
To ensure quality and provide flexibility within the DTS:X program, DTS has partnered with industry-leading server, sound rendering, and processing companies GDC Technology, QSC, and USL. Each company has developed and made available DTS:X-ready components that process and render MDA files to deliver the DTS:X experience to theatergoers.
GDC Technology develops, manufactures and sells digital cinema servers and provides a comprehensive suite of digital cinema products, services, and solutions for exhibitors and distributors. QSC designs and manufactures professional audio systems and solutions for professional installed, portable, production, and cinema sound customers worldwide. USL is engaged in the design, manufacture, and sale of motion picture audio equipment and sound processors.
