IMMERSIVE SURROUND SOUND
Recreate the massive movie theater audio experience at home on your headphones or desktop speakers. With Surround, you're transported out of the room and into the movie theater.
Driving the capability to enhance audio content for any configuration, Surround transforms standard audio into a full-fledged multi-speaker virtual surround experience on your stereo headphones or desktop speakers.
By processing audio through highly optimized algorithms to recreate virtualized surround sound even through a 2.0 speaker setup, or even headphones, it is able to intelligently identify and enhance the spatial information of the incoming audio, and optimize it for the chosen output format. This means you get state-of-the-art Surround Virtualization that draws you to where the action is for a complete and immersive auditory experience.
And it involves 2 core technology components–Upmixer and Virtualizer.
Stereo and multi-channel ambient content, as well as center channel information (dialog) are processed to match the active output configuration, and handed off to the Virtualizer.
Virtualizer then takes the processed audio and spatializes it over headphones, stereo, and multi-channel speakers via optimized HRTF (head-related transfer function) filters.
When combined, you’ll enjoy extremely realistic surround sound experience that puts you at the heart of all the action–be it dodging enemy fire in a virtual battlefield, watching a film’s protagonist maneuver through an action-packed and well-executed escape plan, or even listening to a stunningly arranged and orchestrated song cycle in a classic instrumental piece.
