DTS (Digital Theatre Systems) Inc. an American multinational company are one of the leading developers of sound technology The DTS surround sound used in several of the best home theatres is a series of multichannel audio technologies invented by them.
DTS began with a 5.1 channel system in which they encoded audio as five discrete, full range channels and added to this a Low Frequency Effects channel meant for the subwoofer. DTS Neo 6 is a variant of the DTS 5.1 and was DTS's response to Dolby's Prologic II. Here another channel called the center channel is generated from the present 5.1 channel, thus extracting a 6.1 channel surround sound system from a two-channel audio source.
Neo:6 is a matrixed surround sound system and a multiband decoder capable of enhancing multiple signals simultaneously. Compatibility isn't an issue with Neo:6 as it can work its way with any two channel audio source content.
