Xperi Corp. has announced that LG Electronics has integrated DTS Virtual:X immersive audio technology into its latest Ultra HD TVs. These are the world’s first TVs to feature the DTS Virtual:X premium audio post-processing solution, which delivers virtual height and surround sound for an immersive home entertainment experience without the need for additional speakers.
With the introduction of LG’s newest Ultra HD TVs featuring DTS Virtual:X technology, LG’s customers can enjoy immersive sound directly from their TV’s stereo speakers.
DTS Virtual:X technology also supports any input source, from stereo to 7.1.4 layout (11.1 channels), to enjoy premium content. The flexibility of its architecture enables licensees to utilize one or more features concurrently, including virtual height, virtual surround, bass enhancement, and multi-band hard limiter. The LG Ultra HD TVs with DTS Virtual:X technology are now available in Korea with additional rollouts following in regions around world.
“We are very proud to add TVs to the sound bars and AVRs that already integrate DTS Virtual:X technology, and the first TVs available with this solution are LG’s newest Ultra HD models," said Jea Yoo, president of Xperi’s Korea office. “This audio technology offers consumers a hassle-free, theater-like sound experience at home.”
“Premium, immersive sound is a key factor in the IT device industry, including TVs, in determining the quality of home entertainment," said Won-Il Son, team leader of TV marketing at LG Electronics. “Our partnership with Xperi will allow us to offer a perfect home entertainment experience with LG Ultra HD TVs with DTS Virtual:X technology.”
