DTS Cinema audio vs. DTS Home Theater audio?

#1

Hey folks,

I’m new here. I am wondering about the differences in DTS commercial & consumer audio codecs. Is there a “real” difference and if there is, what are those differences?

Thanks for having a great place here…cheers!!!

DTS Cinema audio uses a proprietary audio compression algorithm called Apt-X100, DTS Home Theater audio uses what is called Coherent Acoustics.

Thanks for the link…I’ve read through it a few times before. I am more interested in the codecs themselves than all the different versions of DTS.

I will keep researching.

Cheers!!!

Those are the codecs.

DTS Coherent Acoustics is a perceptual audio codec. The main technique used is a QMF filter together with Huffman, ADPCM and vector quantization.

Apt-X100 is a proprietary codec, hence why you can’t very information about it. CSR the company that developed and licenses aptX are not that liberal with the detailed inner workings.

You can find some insight in this excerpt, but leads to more extensive reading.

If your intentions are serious about understanding the workings your best bet is to contact Dr. David Trainor at CSR and see were that takes you. Be careful on the direction you take this because technically you have to pay a licensing fee to use this proprietary codec.

I guess with so little info on some parts of DTS it’s hard to know what questions to ask and if they are okay to ask at all.

Thanks for the clarification.

Thanks for the word of caution too. I want to learn about commercial vs. consumer details. I mean if consumer DTS is so good then why is there a need for commercial DTS? The films with DTS soundtracks for cinema aren’t recorded that way when they’re being filmed, so I figured I’d search it out.
