DTS-HD High Resolution

DTS-HD HR is a high-resolution audio format that improves the sound quality of DTS signals and was developed by Digital Theater Systems. This standard offers a higher bit rate and more sound detail than the conventional DTS format. An advantage of DTS-HD HR is that it is compatible with existing DTS decoders, eliminating the need for additional hardware.

Introduction and availability of DTS-HD

The sound format was originally developed and marketed back in 2004 and is now a slimmed-down version of the DTS-HD MA standard, so to speak. In the years that followed, DTS-HD was used in many AV receivers, DVDs, Blu-ray discs and other entertainment media, making it accessible to a wider range of buyers.

In contrast to the “basic” DTS format, the primary advantage of DTS-HD High Resolution is a better playback quality. In addition to a separate control of up to 8 channels, data rates of up to 6 Mbits/s can be realized on Blu-rays. Based on this, a more realistic listening experience can be achieved.

Flexible but not lossless

In addition, the standard generally offers greater flexibility, as multiple audio streams such as languages, commentary tracks, effects, or music can be stored and retrieved in a single file.

Nevertheless, DTS-HD HR is a so-called lossy audio format. Technically speaking, this designation means the omission of information and the representation of content on an approximation basis through a compression process of the data being transmitted.
