DTS, Inc. (Nasdaq: DTSI), a leader in high-definition audio solutions and audio enhancement technologies, today announced that it has collaborated with Moshcam—a streaming video service dedicated to bringing live concert experiences to the masses—to make available an all-new app that serves as an extraordinary demonstration of the power of DTS’ technologies in a mobile ecosystem. The Moshcam app utilizes an MPEG-DASH playback engine, provided by castLabs, a leading mobile video technologies and services company, and content is prepared with DTS audio using software provided by Manzanita Systems, a leading provider of essential MPEG software solutions for digital television, VOD, and digital ad insertion. Moshcam brings thousands of the best artists, events and on-demand concerts from around the world to consumers through the Moshcam app, and now with DTS streaming solutions embedded within the app, users will experience a truly immersive surround sound listening environment—putting them in the midst of the crowd.
Moshcam is able to efficiently stream DTS Express™-encoded content to service subscribers through an MPEG-DASH adaptive-bit-rate container file, which can then be decoded via the Moshcam app’s embedded media player that was developed by castLabs. The end result is a true concert-like entertainment experience anytime, anywhere.
“We are pleased to be working with Moshcam, castLabs and Manzanita Systems to bring the new Moshcam proof of concept app to fruition,” said Brian Towne, executive vice president and chief operating officer at DTS. “The end product of the strategic combination of our four companies’ combined efforts serves as an incredible testament to the flexibility and efficiency of DTS’ advanced audio solutions and their ability to provide an immersive surround sound experience over mobile devices.”
“When we first heard our live concert videos enhanced by the DTS surround sound technology, streaming over the Internet, we were blown away. The Moshcam and DTS collaboration is a perfect example of technology and content converging to create something truly spectacular,” said Stephen Peach, CEO, Moshcam. “First-rate audio quality has always been a core objective of Moshcam, and this alliance allows us to take that promise to the next level. The DTS audio technology that powers Moshcam’s Android app delivers an online concert experience that is unparalleled in quality and clarity. We are thrilled to be working together and look forward to a continued partnership during 2013 and beyond.”
