DTS Virtual:X Immersive Audio Technology Now Available in First Skyworth MAX TV OLED TVs

DTS,
a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned
subsidiary of Xperi
Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”), is pleased to announce DTS®
Virtual:X™ post-processing technology is now available in
Skyworth’s S8A and S9A MAX OLED TVs. Skyworth MAX TV is Skyworth’s
high-end smart TV integrated with AI image quality, AI voice and AI
system in China. Skyworth will continue to integrate DTS audio
technologies in future products as part of a multi-year partnership
between the two companies.

DTS Virtual:X technology for televisions enables an immersive home
entertainment experience directly from the TV’s internal speakers. In
addition, DTS Virtual:X enhances the overall quality of the TV speakers,
including dialog clarity and bass enhancement. The technology supports
any input source from stereo to a 7.1.4 layout and is designed to work
with all DTS codecs, including the flagship DTS:X. For legacy content,
an efficient upmixer is included. The flexibility of DTS Virtual:X and
its architecture enable product manufacturers to utilize one or more
features concurrently, including virtual height and virtual surround.

“We are excited to announce our multi-year agreement with Skyworth and
the integration of DTS Virtual:X on its first smart OLED TVs,” said
Christopher Lang, general manager, Xperi Greater China. “Through
partnerships such as this, DTS continues to provide new and unique
post-processing audio technologies to deliver the best possible
experience to consumers as they enjoy today’s movies and TV shows in the
home.”

Market trends show a demand for larger TV screen sizes and thinner form
factors, limiting TV speaker driver size and placement and compromising
the audio experience from a TV alone. DTS Virtual:X technology addresses
this problem, providing an immersive sound experience without the need
for larger drivers or additional speakers added to the television.

“DTS Virtual:X technology allows our customers to enjoy immersive sound
directly from their TV’s stereo speakers for a better entertainment
experience,” said Mr. Yu Jianwei, China marketing headquarters executive
vice general manager and marketing director at Skyworth. “We’re looking
forward to continuing our relationship with DTS and integrating the
technology into future products.”
