Tokyo, Japan ( July 13, 2021 ) -

DTS, a global leader in next-generation audio, imaging and sensing technology and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: XPER) (“Xperi”), today announced the first DTS:X quality control screening room in Japan has opened at Imagica Entertainment Media Services (“IMAGICA EMS”), Japan’s largest post-production facility.

The full DTS:X cinema system has been integrated into IMAGICA EMS’s Tokyo Imaging Center theater, opening this month in Shinagawa City. This is the first full DTS:X quality control theater in Japan and supports a growing ecosystem of DTS:X soundtrack creation and exhibition by enabling producers and distributors to create and quality-check DTS:X versions of Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs) domestically. Content partners can now screen and review local and Hollywood movies released in the DTS:X audio format in the state-of-the-art facility.

“Our collaboration with IMAGICA EMS encourages filmmakers to explore an expanded universe of sound with DTS:X immersive audio,” said Bill Neighbors, chief content officer, Xperi. “Local content partners now have access to a facility where they can create, ensure quality, and showcase their new releases with DTS:X immersive sound technology.”

“The integration of DTS:X audio technology expands the possibilities for our filmmakers to reach audiences in a more personal and deeply engaging way,” said Tadashi Aota, executive officer, IMAGICA Entertainment Media Service, Inc. “Collaborating with DTS, we would like to expand the project using DTS:X immersive audio technology in Japan among the rapid growth of DTS:X-enabled content availability worldwide.”

The DTS:X technology available to filmmakers at the Tokyo Imaging Center includes:

  • A DTS:X-enabled cinema server, featuring a GDC SX-4000 Standalone Integrated Media Block, supporting 5.1/7.1 surround sound and DTS:X immersive sound.
  • A QSC 510c Q-SYS cinema audio processor and renders DTS:X immersive sound.
