Creative THX TruStudio Pro Audio Technology Featured in MSI Wind Top All-in-One PCs and F-Series Notebooks
Groundbreaking Audio Technology Lets Users Experience the Fullest Audio Experience for Music, Movies and Games
SINGAPORE - 24 June 2010 - Creative Technology Ltd. today announced that its THX TruStudio Pro™ audio technology is featured in the award-winning MSI Wind Top All-in-One PCs and F-Series Notebooks. THX TruStudio Pro is designed to bring the same great audio experience found in live performances, films and recording studios to the PC. Announced at the recent Computex 2010 in Taipei, the latest MSI models that feature THX TruStudio Pro are the first All-in-One PCs and Notebooks in the world to benefit from the result of years of collaborative research and development from Creative and THX, two of the biggest names in sound.
Built to effortlessly run HD movies and sophisticated 3D games, the latest models from the MSI Wind Top All-in-One PCs offer theatre-like multimedia capabilities enhanced by superior builtin audio technology. The ultimate blend of art and technology, the new F-Series Notebooks from MSI are proof that the fashion-conscious can parade high-tech products while not compromising on style.
"MSI is proud to be the world's first PC manufacturer to include the cutting-edge Creative THX TruStudio Pro audio technology in our latest Notebook PC and All-in-One PC" said Sam Chern, MSI Marketing Director. "Creative has an extremely strong heritage in audio excellence, and we believe our cooperation will continue to push the boundaries of multimedia entertainment on the PC."
"With increased adoption of the All-in-One PC and Notebook platforms, we are excited to work with MSI to advance the standards of PC audio by delivering THX TruStudio Pro audio technology to these platforms for the first time" said Steve Erickson, Vice President and General Manager for Audio and Video at Creative.
THX TruStudio Pro provides the latest groundbreaking technologies that are products of years of collective experience and research by Creative and THX. Together, these technologies deliver the fullest audio experience for music, movies and games, while remaining true to the source and intention of the artists who created them.
THX TruStudio Pro
The THX TruStudio Pro suite of technologies features THX TruStudio Pro Surround™, THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer™, THX TruStudio Pro Speaker™, THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus™ and THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume™.
THX TruStudio Pro Surround
THX TruStudio Pro Surround provides immersion control to enhance the natural sense of audio depth and spaciousness by creating virtual surround sound channels. Stereo content or multichannel content played over stereo speakers and headphones will sound as if it is coming from all sides while voices remain centred in front and original balance and timbre is preserved.
THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer
THX TruStudio Pro Crystalizer restores the natural dynamic range that is lost when iTunes and MP3 music gets compressed. This makes the music sounds as good as the artist originally intended, and adds an enhanced level of realism for movies and games.
THX TruStudio Pro Speaker
THX TruStudio Pro Speaker fills in the missing low frequency tones and gives the extra impact for a better entertainment experience. Consumers no longer have to tolerate lack of bass in speakers built into notebook PCs, 2.0 speakers or headphones, as THX TruStudio Pro Speaker technology dramatically improves the sound experience without a subwoofer.
THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus
THX TruStudio Pro Dialog Plus enhances the voices in movies for clearer dialogue, allowing the listener to hear the dialogue over the rest of the soundtrack and over ambient noise in the listening environment.
THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume
THX TruStudio Pro Smart Volume addresses the problem of abrupt volume level changes during playback and between songs by automatically and continuously measuring volume, and intelligently applying gain and attenuation to compensate for those changes.
THX TruStudio Pro audio technology will be featured in the following All-in-One PC models from MSI - The Wind Top AE2420 3D / AE2420 / AE2280 / AE2260. THX TruStudio Pro audio technology will also be featured in the latest models from the new F-Series Notebooks from MSI.
