Paramount Releases Blu-ray Disc Titles With DTS:X Sound
DTS, developer of high definition surround sound solutions, said that the first Paramount Home Media Distribution Blu-ray Disc titles with support for DTS:X are now hitting store shelves.
DTS:X is an object-based surround format offering height channels to create one of the most immersive surround sound experiences available for the home.
The first titles will include: Daddy’s Home, starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Farrell; The Big Short, starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt; Zoolander No. 2, starring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson; and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, starring Tina Fey and Margot Robbie.
DTS:X audio technology was designed to accurately convey the fluid movement of sound to create a richer soundscape. DTS:X technology adapts to the speaker layout to home theater room by seamlessly transporting sound to and through specific locations within the viewing environment – in front of, behind, above and beside the audience.

To play the DTS:X sound track, an audio video receiver or sound bar with DTS:X technology is required. Supporting products are available from: Denon, Marantz, Sony, Trinnov and Yamaha with additional brands — including Acurus, Anthem, ARCAM, Integra, Krell, McIntosh, Onkyo, Outlaw Audio, Pioneer, Steinway Lyngdorf and Theta Digital/ATI – scheduled to be adding firmware updates for DTS:X support for additional AVR products shortly. Additionally, Yamaha will deliver a firmware update to its YSP-5600 sound bar this summer.
On Daddy’s Home, The Big Short, Zoolander No. 2 The Magnum Edition and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, as well as additional select titles available with DTS:X audio, Paramount and DTS will offer support for a DTS Headphone:X track via participating digital retailers. DTS Headphone:X generates the immersive DTS:X experience through a pair of headphones.
Currently, none of the Paramount titles are not being released on the new Ultra HD Blu-ray format. Retail pricing for the discs varies from $12.99 to $27.99.
