Kinda confusing. Does this mean the digital audio division or the television division?

It’s the digital cinema part of DTS. They still have the rights to the DTS audio codec and the systems used in a lot of theaters. They’re becoming a bit smaller than Dolby, the main competitor, since double d does have a digital cinema division; Sony used to have a digital cinema division that created SDDS but has since closed shop in 2002 to focus more on home entertainment and video games.
