VIA’s new Audio Codec integrates DTS Surround Sensation Ultra PC plus Head Tracker headphones technology

VIA logoVIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the integration of the new DTS Surround Sensation Ultra PC™ plus Head Tracker™ headphone technology into the VIA Vinyl VT1610 Audio Codec industry-leading audio solution.

Combining the VIA Vinyl VT1610 Audio Codec with DTS Surround Sensation Ultra PC plus Head Tracker headphones technology takes mobile 3D surround sound to the next level. It provides the listener with a fixed forward-facing sound stage creating a perception of a virtual space that renders the ideally-balanced acoustics traditionally associated with the best seat in the house – 7th row center.

If dialogue is coming through the phantom center channel and the listener turns toward the right, the sound stage remains fixed and the audio will be heard more strongly through the left headphone, resulting in a more natural and immersive listening experience.

“As more and more people opt to have their entertainment delivered via versatile mobile devices, there is a rising demand for more realistic audio playback,” said Richard Brown, Vice President of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “VIA is excited to work with DTS to develop a technology that will offer headphone users an improved and truly unique audio experience.”

“DTS Surround Sensation Ultra PC plus Head Tracker headphones technology delivers an incredible simulated effect from headphones alone, bringing the surround sound experience to mobile platforms around the world,” said David Tan, VP Product Management North American Licensing, Dts, Inc.. “Together with VIA, we are committed to delivering the ultimate entertainment experience to consumers.”
