Last week, I saw the 2017 DTS Demo Disc – Volume 21 that was distributed last month at CES for sale on eBay. Since getting it on eBay is a lot easier than flying to Las Vegas I decided to make the purchase. The 2017 DTS Demo Disc – Volume 21, included six new DTS trailers. Three DTS:X “Out of the Box” in 15, 30, and 60 second versions; and three DTS HD “Out of the Box” Trailers, also in 15, 30, and 60 second versions. I am happy to be able to share these with my fellow home theater and DTS enthusiasts! So head over to the DTS Trailers page and check them out. Oh, and if you do not have playback capability for DTS:X or DTS-HD MA, the second track contains the lossy DTS 5.1 encode.

I also added the DTS:X Object Emulator, which is a nifty demo showing an object (a ball) moving in a 3D space and the sound in your home theater matches the location of the object. It has a nice beat too. How fun is that?

DATASAT theatrical trailer DTS-HD MA 5.1 and 7.1

We don’t have any new theatrical trailers today, and we are eagerly waiting for the release of the trailer for Star Wars Episode VII – The Force Awakens later tonight. I expect to have the multi channel version up Wednesday morning, but it could be earlier depending upon how the post production marketing goes about it. I will post an update here when I receive more news.

While we all wait for that to arrive (and hopefully blow us away!) here is the DATASAT theatrical trailer with both a DTS-HD MA 5.1 and 7.1 track, as well as PCM 2.0 if your system can’t handle the others. If you are not aware, DATASAT is what DTS evolved into in the theatrical space, however they are moving out of the theatrical space and focusing on high-end home theater audio equipment that feature Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D processing. I am told that the release of The Hateful Eight by Quentin Tarantino will likely be the last theatrical release to have a DATASAT (DTS) sound track. I have added the DATASAT trailer to the DTS Trailers page.


DTS – The Digital Experience (1993)

The Digital Experience

The Digital Experience

I remember back in 1996 when a friend told me about the cool dts trailer he saw before a movie – at that point I had only caught the Dolby “Train” and “City” trailers, and I was really interested in seeing the dts trailer. On July 3, 1996 I headed to the Oxford theater in Halifax, Nova Scotia to catch a little film called “Independence Day”. The Oxford is one of the very few old movie houses still in operation, which opened its doors on March 1, 1937. It is 78 years old, and had an extensive renovation in 2011.

The quest for dts 1

dts HD Master Audio

dts HD Master Audio

When I uploaded the dts trailer “Animated Logo” the audio was Dolby AC3. This has been bothering me ever since, and I have held off on uploading more dts trailers because I felt that the audio on a dts trailer should be encode in dts, not Dolby, or AAC. This poses a couple of challenges – specifically getting a dts stream on an .MP4 for playback via the PS3. But then I realized that the PS3 can not play dts files accessed from the XMB (stored on USB or the hard disc). I don’t have a PS4, or an XBOX ONE but my research tells me that those platforms don’t support dts in that manner either. So the idea of getting a dts track on a .MP4 really is a useless endeavor. Unfortunately, it ate up a couple days of my life (off and on) trying to do it – with varying levels of success. In the end I was able to do it but the file would only play using MPC-HC (Media Player Classic – Home Cinema) and it had some issues.

As time went on, my PC connected to my receiver via HDMI has become my go-to media solution. The PS3 was great, but it has limits in compatibility. If something doesn’t play in one app on the PC, you can find a driver, codec, or another app that will allow it to play. With this in mind, I have updated the dts trailers page with a selection of 8 dts trailers that have dts audio. They are available in lossless DTS HD Master Audio 5.1. Two trailers have DTS HD High Resolution Audio and are 7.1. And for compatibility purposes for those who can not decode the HD Master Audio files, they are all available with the standard DTS 5.1 1,536 Kbps 48 kHz audio track.

This brings up a good question, and I pose it to you. What format do you want the trailers on this site to be in? MKV, MP4, or something else? Is there a desire to have trailers encoded in dts vs Dolby. Are people interested in FLAC? I want this site to be of value to those who use it. I will likely continue to post files as .MP4 with Dolby for comparability purposes, but if you have a preference please let me know using the Contact Us link in the menu, or in the comments section below.  If there is a demand, I will look into it.
