EAX ADVANCED HD
EAX ADVANCED HD brings a new level of performance, power, and flexibility to PC audio. The all-new EAX ADVANCED HD Game Audio Library takes in-game audio and acoustic simulation to a whole new level.These innovative technologies bring tremendous realism and total audio immersion to PC gaming:
New Multi-EnvironmentTM technology renders multiple environment audio effects in real time.
Environment PanningTM makes it easy for gamers to track, with three-dimensional precision, the location and movement of sounds that usually represent enemies or team mates. This gives Audigy 2 ZS gamers a better advantage as they are more "attuned" to the game scenario.
Environment ReflectionsTM offers localization of early reflections and echoes.
Environment FilteringTM accurately simulates the propagation of sound in both open and closed environments.
Environment MorphingTM allows for seamless transition from one environment to the next.
EAX ADVANCED HD Music Technologies also assure sonic superiority, rich environment effects and music enhancement features such as Audio Clean-Up, Time Scaling and EAX ADVANCED HD audio effects.
Audio Clean-Up enables the removal of unwanted noise in a digital audio file.
Time Scaling speeds up and slows down music with no distortion.
EAX ADVANCED HD audio effects, developed especially for music listening, further enhance playback of songs.
