DTS 70 mm is a process specifically designed for playback in motion picture theaters that are equipped with 70 mm projection and 6-track stereo. However, the 70 mm DTS prints lack analog backup if the digital sound fails, since they do not have 6-track magnetic striping. The time code track on such a film is several times wider than the 35 mm version and theaters with 70 mm DTS install two time code readers for greater reliability.
