DTS Adds UltraViolet Decoding To PowerDVD

Calabasas-based audio encoding technology provider DTS said today that PowerDVD, the media player from Cyberlink, will support decoding of the DTS-HD format from new UltraViolet Common File Format (CFF) files. CyberLink's PowerDVD player is used to view DVDs, Blu-Ray, and other media. DTS-HD is an audio encoding scheme for 7.1 channel sound. The companies said that PowerDVD already supports DTS-HD encoded on Blu-ray and DVDs, and the new release adds UltraViolet format decoding support. Financial aspects of the new support were not announced.
