Dolby sounds the home PC market

Friday January 10, 2003. 08:59 AM, by deleted (translated by Presto) Computer Hardware > Dolby Laboratories
Computer Hardware : Dolby sounds the home PC market - macmusicDolby is working on getting sound from a simple PC to rival your hifi set, through two technologies.

Dolby Virtual Speaker technology (co-developed and owned by Lake Technology Ltd.) simulates a highly realistic 5.1-speaker surround sound listening environment from as few as two speakers. This is already available with the CyberLink and InterVideo DVD drives. Note that it only works for one listener sitting between 2 speakers.
Audigy 2 from Creative is thus the first card capable of reproducing the multi-channel sound of DVDs under Windows, in 24 bit / 192kHz, if the DVD allows. The card is labelled THX, and can use any DVD drive to decode the DVD-Audio.

Also Dolby Headphone technology is integrated into a variety of PC software applications, including CyberLink Power DVD, InterVideo WinDVD, and Nvidia NVDVD, to create a 5.1 listening experience from any pair of headphones.
