Super Audio CD comprises four key enabling technologies as follows: 1) Direct Stream Digital (DSD), source coding technology for superior high quality sound 2) Direct Stream Transfer (DST) technology, which allows both stereo and multichannel mixes on one disc 3) Content protection technology containing the invisible watermark PSP (Pit Signal Processing) for both content access and playback control 4) Single layer, dual layer and hybrid discs As the world's largest producer of prerecorded optical discs, Sony Disc Manufacturing supplies a full line of high-quality products and services for the education, entertainment and information industries.
Additional new features include a TDM serial interface and a proprietary Direct Stream Digital (DSD) processor for SACD applications, allowing for volume control and on-chip 50 kHz filtering without an intermediate decimation filter stage.
For SACD applications, the CS4398 includes a patent-pending Direct Stream Digital processor that includes a volume control engine that does not decimate the data stream, thereby maintaining the native sampling rate of 2.
Super Audio CD, which uses Direct Stream Digital (DSD) Encoding, has a frequency response five times greater than other audio CDs and multi-channel, pure and precise high-resolution sound.
