Optimized Sound
With the development of lossless audio available with Blu-ray Disc™ technology, the potential accuracy of the sound field grew exponentially. That enabled Sony engineers to go back to the studio and create a lossless digital equivalent. When married to the lossless audio codecs, this HD Digital Cinema Sound (HD-D.C.S) sound field provides a higher level of auditory imagery. Now, your customer can hear the cannon ball whizzing past their ears and also follow the movement of that sound with their ears.

HD Digital Cinema Sound™ processing is based on our expertise in the movie business. Sony Pictures Entertainment includes Columbia Pictures, Screen Gems, Sony Pictures Classics and TriStar Pictures. Our Culver City lot includes 22 sound stages, ample post product facilities and disc mastering. Movie projects from other studios line up to take advantage of the acoustics of our meticulously designed mixing stages and our scoring stage is a Hollywood favorite. The knowledge we gain in movie production is reflected in our audio/video components. We reproduce the mixing and scoring stages with incredible precision, thanks to our latest Digital Cinema Sound modes.
