|Supposedly at CES, DTS has announced several new technologies including
- Surround Sensation
- some headtracker
- a (virtual?) 11.1-channel system
Although it's an American event I can only seem to find Japanese coverage about this, here and here.
The news/press page on DTS' own site has no CES news at all. The only article from this year is about their take-over of Neural Audio.
I'm curious about these things. Envelo looks like something for iPod. Some simulated surround thing? I guess a lot of the innovations are about virtualization. Or would they really hope people put 12 speakers in their living rooms?
Similarly, Dolby has announced Dolby Pro Logic IIz, a new variant of the system that scales up to 9.1 but at least their website provides information about it.
