I do know that JVC is supposidly finishing up their DTS 24/96 encoder at the D-VHS mastering facility for their second generation D-VHS/D-Theater High Definition tape player with DTS Digital Out capability. I guess the four current major studios supporting D-VHS 1080i HDTV movie releases (Fox, Artisan, DreamWorks, and Universal) are interested in using this DTS feature when it's available.
On Region 1 DVD I haven't seen any movies yet. A couple of DVD-Audio discs, but that's about it.
If you want to try it out, the new Queen "Night at the Opera" DVD-Audio has DTS 94/24 in DVD-Video mode. Also, the 2-disc special edition of Se7en has a short demo of the opening title sequence on the second disc in DTS 96/24 with picture.
You really do not want DTS 24/96 on DVD Video disc because picture quality will suffer a lot. Six channel DTS 24/96 runs at over 4 Mbps which leaves less than 6 Mbps max for video. Any movie with a lot of action and you will have digital artifacts galore. BTW, DTS 24/96 was really developed for use on DVD Audio discs to provide quality as close as possible to PCM track. Also you need a decoder that will decode full resolution. All DTS decoders will play DTS 24/96 but to get full quality you need real DTS 24/96 decoder. Otherwise you will just hear qaulty no better than 20/48.
You are wrong. DTS at 24/96 is for dvd video is encoded at 1500kb which is the full bitrate dts in theaters and in which a handfull of dvd's have already use for regular dts. SO it would be fine to use dts 24/96 on dvd's if not a lot of other languga tracks were used.
No you are wrong. I know what full bitrate dvd is 1509kb i was just rounding becuase i didnt have the exact figure off hand. yes i realize that it has been used for 20/48 but a standard has been reached to include 24/96 dts audio in future dvd releases. They have agreed upon 1509kb as the compression rate to use for dvd video dts at 24/96. If you look it up on the web you will find articles on this. I realize that they have a version of it used for dvd audio discs that run at 4mb but this is different.
