CMI8768 series is the first high performance PCI integrated sound single-chip in the world which provide 8 channel output with upto 48K / 16 bit. Beside basic I/O supports, CMI8768+ supports Dolby Digital Live 5.1 (AC-3) real-time interactive content encoder. Dolby Digital Live encodes all digital audio sources on PC such as 3D game audio, VCD, MP3, WMA, Internet radio into 5.1CH Dolby Digital stream transmitted via consumer standard S/PDIF link to external decoder/receiver and even Home Theater system. With Dolby Digital Live encoder feature, users can easily connect PC audio to consumer sound system by S/PDIF interface. It realizes Digital Home Entertainment PC in the living room.

Addition to CMI9768+ with Dolby Digital Live 5.1 (AC-3) supported, CMI8770 also provides DTS Connect (DTS NEO:PC, DTS Interactive)   real-time interactive content encoder. DTS Neo:PC turns any 2channel audio into 7.1 channel surround sound. DTS Interactive encodes all audio streams into DTS bit stream transmitted through S/PDIF interface.

Integrated S/PDIF transmitter can also pass through 5.1 Dolby Digital/DTS, or 6.1/7.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX/DTS ES DVD audio stream to the external receiver satisfying audio enthusiasts and pioneers.

On the software side, CMI-8768 series supports Cmedia Xear Living and Cmedia Xear Voice with Windows Drivers. Linux driver is also available in most Linux OS versions.
