VIA Technologies Inc. and QSound Labs Inc. have partnered to deliver a sound system for Windows Vista based multimedia, personal and laptop computers. QSound's QHD technology is now available on VIA Vinyl high-definition (HD) audio codecs and controllers.

According to VIA, its codecs and controllers combined with QSound's QHD technology enable consumers to experience superior HD audio the way it should be heard with content like movies, music, games and even TV programs. Powered by VIA Vinyl Audio hardware, QSound QHD combines several audio technologies to deliver a top quality audio experience while addressing the demands of multi-format audio playback typical in multimedia rich devices like the PC. By using the solution, small speakers in PCs will produce sound that is significantly larger and richer with a more natural intensity regardless of the source of the content.

QSound's QHD suite of audio enhancements provides users with unparalleled audio quality and includes the QXpander, QRumble, QSizzle, QEqualizer and other QSound audio enhancement algorithms.

QXpander is a field-proven stereo sound-field enhancement technology that provides a broader stereo sound image width with greater separation and depth for stereo signals and synthesizes a three-dimensional stereo sound field. QRumble offers base energy adding more substance and warmth to the low-frequency. QSizzle adds the sonic punch to the high-frequency audio spectrum and Qequalizer is a multi-band equalizer, which provides users with an interface for shaping the overall frequency response to Sound QHD.

"VIA delivers a broad range of world class PC silicon solutions for the international PC and multimedia computer market and our combined technologies provide consumers with unmatched audio quality experience," said David Gallagher, president and CEO of QSound Labs. "We are very pleased to be enhancing the Vista audio experience by working closely with a strong Windows partner like VIA."
