Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. have recently announced an agreement with AM3D to utilize AM3D Audio Enhancement Technology across a new range of GameSmart enabled wireless Gaming Headsets.
AM3D Audio Enhancement Technology will enable wireless GameSmart headsets to deliver precision surround sound audio over Bluetooth. AM3D Virtual Surround Sound is based on binaural synthesis using head-related transfer functions (HRTF) to create virtual sound sources, providing an accurate audio sound stage during gaming.
With a 2.0 channel input (stereo or multi-channel down-mix), the signal is enhanced to produce a multi-channel-like surround sound signal, delivering profound surround sound perception and an enhanced center; optimum for gaming as well as movie and music playback.
Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. stated, “We believe the audio technology provided by AM3D will prove ideal for use in gaming applications, allowing us to deliver precision surround sound via Bluetooth on our GameSmart range of mobile accessories.”
“AM3D is pleased to partner with Mad Catz as both companies are very passionate about improving the gaming experience with superior sound,” stated Jacob N. Andersen, Senior Vice President, AM3D A/S.
