DTS, INC.'s "DTS Neural Surround Sound" technology is being used on ATLANTA BRAVES baseball broadcasts by DICKEY BROADCASTING Sports WCNN-A (680 THE FAN)/ATLANTA and CUMULUS Rock WNNX (ROCK 100.5)/ATLANTA. DTS says that the broadcasts are the first to incorporate surround sound for major league radio broadcasts.
"At CUMULUS, we set the standard for the next-generation radio broadcasting enterprise and we are very proud to deliver what we consider the best sounding baseball in AMERICA," said VP of Engineering and IT GARY KLINE. "Working with DTS technology enables us to increase the quality and envelopment of the game for all of our listeners, so they feel like they're sitting in the grandstands."
DTS CEO JON KIRSCHNER added, "Baseball on the radio is a special aural experience with a rich American history. The sounds of the game --- a bat cracking against the baseball or a hushed murmur of the crowd as the ball is flying through the air toward the stands --- are what pull sports fans to the edge of their seats and define the critical moments in a sports broadcast. We are committed to bringing the baseball fan even closer to the action with high-quality sound through innovative technology like DTS Neural Surround Sound."
