DTS, Inc. has announced a worldwide strategic alliance with LG Electronics to incorporate DTS premium audio technology in LG’s complete line-up of home entertainment products such as connected 4K TVs, sound bars, audio-video receivers and digital media players.
LG will incorporate the DTS-HD decoder into its products, enabling full compatibility with all DTS audio formats up to 11.1 channels and supporting DTS Digital Surround, DTS Coreless Lossless, DTS Express and DTS-HD Master Audio.
The DTS-HD decoder was designed from the ground up to support streaming media and over-the-top content delivered in various popular profiles of the DTS-HD codec.

DTS audio technology will ensure that we are able to deliver an audio experience that exceeds the expectations consumers have of our industry-leading OLED and 4K Ultra HD TVs, digital players and audio systems.”
