DTS-HD for PS3 Next Week

DTS today said one of the longstanding criticisms of the PlayStation 3 would be addressed with a firmware update next week that adds DTS-HD Master Audio for movies on the Sony game console. The addition allows Blu-ray movies and other HD titles to output 7.1-channel surround at a 96kHz, 24-bit quality at up to 24.5 megabits per second. At this rate, the stream virtually equals the sound created in the studio masters that give the DTS format its namesake, according to its creator.

The upgrade is free for all PS3s and will be available immediately when Sony issues a new, unnamed version upgrade for the PS3 on April 15th. Sony's game system is now relatively high-end among Blu-ray players, having received Blu-ray Final Profile 2.0 support for Internet features as well as more PS3-specific features such as bookmarking movies for resuming playback after the movie has been stopped.
