Founded in 2009, Datasat Digital Entertainment was previously the Digital Cinema division of DTS. As DTS, the company had created the 5.1 digital surround format that features on Steve Spielberg's Jurassic Park in 1993. A breakthrough in sound technology that was recognised with an Academy Award for Technical Achievement in 1996.
The company officially began trading in April 2009 and rebranded its cinema technology as Datasat Digital Sound. The new logo replacing the familiar DTS logo on new movie posters and end credits.
As the cinema industry moves from 35mm to digital movies, Datasat Digital Entertainment remains at the forefront of this revolution. By concentrating on the digital signal processing element of sound reproduction, the company has been able to create a new generation of feature-rich audio processors that are taking the listening experience to the next level. The Datasat AP20 has so much functionality in one box that it could take up to four separate components to deliver the same feature set.
In 2012, Datasat Digital Entertainment was selected by Barco and Auro Technologies to provide the audio processing element of the breakthrough immersive Auro3D cinema system. The company developed a 24 channel audio processor, the Datasat AP243D, to enable the creation of truly 3D sound experiences. The company has now announced that its to integrate Auro 11.1 into its home audio processors.
This same commitment to advanced sound engineering and product functionality has been brought into the luxury home market with the Datasat RS20i. Since its launch in 2012, the RS20i has quickly gained a reputation for delivering unbeatable sound quality and flexibility. This has led to the audio processor receiving industry awards including attaining 'Reference Status' from AV Forums. An award that AV Forums also gave to the Dataat RA7300 7-channel power amplifier.
