To add clarity and depth perception to surround sound mixes, AstoundSurround spatial audio cues are incorporated during mixing to provide a perception of sound resonating from all angles, including above and directly behind the listener. GenAudio's AstoundSound process is based on more than 22 years of R&D into how the human brain actually processes audio information, advanced audio digital signal processing (DSP) methods and innovative software engineering. This 3D audio technology introduces elevation and depth perception into the audio environment, taking the 3D movie experience to the next level.
"GenAudio has developed software that can be used to place audio in every location possible around the listener. We can pinpoint sounds that emanate from above, below, behind--anywhere within or outside of the speaker field without the need for any additional playback equipment for movie theaters or in the home," said Jerry Mahabub, Chairman and CEO, GenAudio.

For the consumer electronics industry the company provides software development kit solutions for embedded level integration into every device that has a stereo audio output capability such as HDTVs, Blu-ray players, video game systems, computers, etc. GenAudio's product offerings are all software based.
