No Sense Without Sound – which takes place tomorrow (8 March) at 15:00 GMT – will showcase DTS’s HD audio technology for IPTV.

With consumer demand for HD and 3D entertainment continuing to rise, the webinar will give an overview of the most recent advances in HD audio technology for IPTV and demonstrate how, in some cases, the quality can rival that of Blu-ray.

DTS is working with IPTV content providers such as Orange France, Free and Roxio Now/Sonic Solutions to integrate DTS surround sound technologies into their latest IPTV services, as well as working to support industry standards in the connected entertainment sector, such as DLNA and Open IPTV.

Director of worldwide licensing broadcast Ted Laverty (pictured) commented: “The webinar is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the advances that have been made in audio technology for IPTV and how they can enrich the user’s home entertainment experience. DTS is the mandatory audio format for BD Live so we are excited to be able to share our experience of the IPTV market and enable operators to deliver consistently high-quality audio experiences for next generation digital entertainment.”

Attendees are invited to join Ted Laverty for the DTS Webinar on March 8 2011 at 15:00 GMT. It can be accessed, after registration, through http://marketing.telecoms.com/c/1CrfEO1lMO3blxzIFS. Those who are unable to take part at the time will receive a unique link which will allow them to view the webinar content for up to three months afterwards.

Looking ahead, DTS will be at the IP&TV World Forum 2011 on 22-24 March and will take part in two panel discussions: The Future of the Networked Home (22 March) and Defining Industry Standards (23 March).
