Agoura Hills, CA  – DTS, Inc. (NASDAQ: DTSI) announces that it will feature and demonstrate its DTS-HD™ audio solutions for the next generation optical disc formats at the 121st AES convention in San Francisco.  Exhibiting at the Moscone Convention Center, Booth #632 and presenting in Room #264, October 6-8, 2006, DTS will showcase the company's latest technology advances for the professional audio and broadcast community, including the DTS-HD Master Audio Suite and the DTS Surround Audio Suite, two new software packages for encoding audio streams for the Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD and standard DVD formats.  DTS surround technologies have been designated as mandatory audio standards for both HD DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

DTS will also display a series of hardware tools jointly developed by DTS and Linear Acoustic that provide enhanced performance for broadcast contribution, distribution and emission workflows of multi-channel audio.  These new units are based around an implementation of the DTS Coherent Acoustics superior compression algorithm and, as embodied in the Linear Acoustic StreamStacker-HD™ series of products, the new format is known as e2 (e-squared).

In addition to showcasing its new encoding products, DTS will also be hosting a series of presentations and live demonstrations featuring DTS-HD Master Audio lossless digital audio format during the AES convention in Room #264.  The demos will include:

    * DTS-HD Master Audio (lossless) surround sound in 7.1-channel.
    * Technical outline of various aspects of surround sound production techniques.
    * In-depth view of the DTS Master Audio Suite and Surround Audio Suite software.
    * Presentation from Neyrinck Audio Labs on their new SoundCode for DTS plug-in suite for Pro Tools™, including the SoundCode DTS-HD Decoder plug-in.
    * Presentations from Genelec on their latest surround monitoring products and room tuning techniques.

DTS encourages all conference attendees to visit the DTS booth for details on specific presentation and demonstration schedules.

"Since we've begun rolling out DTS-HD and demonstrating our new encoding capabilities, the reception from the professional audio and entertainment industries has been overwhelmingly positive," said Brian Towne, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Consumer Division, at DTS.  "This year's AES convention provides a great opportunity to show how DTS's solution is the ideal choice for high definition audio based on both quality and ease-of-use."
