New Tencent AI Smart Speaker to Feature DTS Stereo Plus Technology

Tencent Dingdang Smart Display is first smart speaker with new DTS Stereo Plus technology

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 20, 2018-- DTS, a global leader in high-definition audio solutions and a wholly owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER) (“Xperi”), is pleased to announce the integration of the new DTS Stereo Plus technology in the Tencent Dingdang Smart Display speaker. DTS Stereo Plus is a premium audio post-processing solution that delivers wider, deeper sound from stereo speakers placed within a single enclosure. The Tencent Dingdang Smart Display speaker featuring DTS Stereo Plus technology will begin shipping in China on December 24.

As a turnkey post-processing solution, DTS Stereo Plus is engineered to deliver dramatically better sound while preserving quality, with minimal impact to cost and design for wired and wireless speakers. The technology also maintains sonic quality, even at maximum volume.

“We are excited to partner with Tencent to integrate DTS Stereo Plus technology into a smart speaker for the first time," said Joanna Skrdlant, general manager, home audio at Xperi. “Portable speakers don’t need to sound small, and this technology is a cost-effective solution to unleash spacious, dynamic audio in a small form factor. Products with DTS Stereo Plus technology deliver a depth and spaciousness that seems to extend beyond the limitations of the product.”

“The Tencent Dingdang Smart Display speaker is an internally-designed smart speaker with an eight-inch screen,” said Xuechao Li, vice president of Tencent’s smart platform product department. “Additionally, it has Tencent Dingdang’s full portfolio of AI solutions and integrates a large amount of content resources to provide users with intelligent image and sound services. This cooperation with DTS to adopt the brand new Stereo Plus audio technology to create wider sound for the Tencent Dingdang Smart Display speaker will bring users an enhanced listening experience.”

DTS Stereo Plus technology greatly improves the acoustic performance from Bluetooth and Wi-Fi speakers utilizing industry-leading virtualization. This new solution can enhance multiple stereo speaker driver orientations, providing device manufacturers with the flexibility to satisfy industrial design and acoustic performance objectives.

DTS Stereo Plus technology is also available for ARM-based Android devices.
