THX Certification Coming To Smartphones And Tablets
In an interview this week Rick Dean senior VP of THX explained that
his company was looking at the possibility to start pursuing an THX
certification process for smartphones and tablets devices in the future.
Together with applications that would be able to enhance the quality of the sounds from smartphones and tablet devices but, but Dean wouldn’t unveil any specific plans the company had within this area.
"Five years ago, I said that we should really get into the mobile
audio world, but they said, ‘You can’t get a theatrical experience out
of that, you’re listening to it with earbuds.’” – "But look at the way
that music is consumed today,”.
No timescales has been mentioned for the rollout of the new THX
certificate system but it will be interesting to see which are the first
devices to receive the new THX certificates.
