THX introduces Games Mode
THX introduces a special Games Mode for its Ultra2 Certified home theater components.
THX has today announced the introduction of an audio playback mode optimized for games for its Ultra2 Certified range of home theater systems. THX Games Mode has been designed to accurately reproduce video game sound content exactly as the game developers intended, using THX's patented Adaptive Speaker Array (ASA) four-speaker surround sound technology.
"With more than 50 percent of home theater owners integrating video game consoles into their home entertainment systems, THX Games Mode will provide the ultimate way to experience video game sound," said Mark Tuffy, director of advanced technology at THX. "For the first time, gamers will have access to playback systems that accurately place sound effects, music, and character dialogue all around them, pulling the gamer even closer into the action."
"The introduction of THX Games Mode further builds upon our recently announced THX Certified Games Program, which sets quality standards for game development environments where audio and video content is produced and edited," said Ivan Fujihara, general manager of THX. "By improving the quality of the playback technology on home theater components, THX is taking yet another step to ensure the integrity of video game content from creation all the way through gameplay."
