While HTF doesn’t regularly cover mobile technology per se, it seems relevant when immersive audio developed originally for professional cinema ends up on tiny portable devices. In this context, DTS has just announced that DTS:X Ultra has been integrated onto the new ASUS ZenFone 6 Android smartphone, supporting 5.1 and 7.1 multi-channel audio and other features for music, movies and gaming.
As well as delivering the “most believable” immersive audio experience, the company says that post-processing audio algorithms on the new device allow for enhanced bass response, and the inclusion of an “ultra-realistic” head-tracker and custom audio tuning for up to six pre-loaded headphone profiles.
“DTS:X Ultra technology represents a significant improvement in mobile audio to make streaming content sound amazing on the ZenFone 6,” said Sumat Mehra, svp and general manager, mobile at Xperi. “Consumers choose smartphones based on their features and performance capabilities. DTS:X Ultra technology enhances smartphone-based audio content, delivering a truly premium entertainment experience.”
“DTS:X Ultra is an integral part of providing our consumers the ultimate entertainment experience in the new ZenFone 6,” saidBryan Chang, general manager, phone business unit at ASUS. “We are excited to offer these unique features from DTS that ensure quality audio for all content.”
