Datasat Digital Entertainment was founded in 1991 under the name Digital Theater Sound (DTS). Datasat developed one of the worlds first digital audio systems for professional movie theatres. Steven Spielberg was one of the people who noticed. In 1993, the first movie with Datasat Digital Entertainment Audio audio technology was released: Jurassic Park
Nowadays, Datasat Digital Entertainment is a household name for film studios in North America. The biggest blockbusters can be heard worldwide in the best audio quality, thanks to Datasat Digital Entertainment's technology.
Datasat Digital Entertainment used external sound storage on CD-ROM with an advanced audio codec for synchronisation with the movie. As opposed to competitors such as Dolby and SDDS. They added the audio to the 35mm film.
Datasat was able to realise higher audio quality because the didn't need to compress the audio in order for it to fit on the 35mm film. In 1996, this technology resulted in an Oscar for Datasat for their innovative audio technology.
Over the years, the film industry is not standing still. For one, the jump was made from 35mm film into the digital era. Datasat Digital Entertainment has responded in kind, and remains an industry leader. One example of recent developments is the Datasat AP20. This Datasat processor houses various applications in one device, whereas competitors need 4 external components.
Hardly surprising, Barco has now joined forces with Datasat Digital Entertainment for the realisation of a 3D audio processor.
The Datasat AP24 3D is an integrated Auro-3D® processor, which brings 11.1 and 13.1 3D sound to movie theatres cost effectively.
And now, finally, Datasat Digital Entertainment brings professional audio processor technology to the high end consumer market. The Datasat RS20i is the first consumer audio processor based on Datasat Digital Entertainment's professional movie theatre technology.
