It refers to the audio formats of the
compression method (DTS-HD Master Audio,
Dolby TrueHD, etc.) which is a high bitrate
format recorded mainly on Blu-ray Disc etc.
A scanning method which completes a picture
by displaying half of the lines on a tube surface
of a TV or monitor each 1/60 second. First, all
the odd-numbered lines are drawn, leaving
spaces between each line, then all the even-

Surround is taking surround
sound to the next level. This revolutionary new
technology delivers the rich envelopment and
discrete image detail of surround sound in a
format that is fully compatible with stereo.
Neural-THX Surround reduces the bandwidth
needed for broadcasters to deliver true, multi
channel surround presentations, and enables
7.1-channel support for gaming and movies.
By unmasking the audio details, typically lost
by other playback systems, audiences will
experience the deep ambience and subtle
details of movies, music and games. And with
this technology being used by sound designers
during content creation, as well as embedded
into playback devices, Neural-THX Surround
promises a listening experience that is true to
the original mix.
Neural-THX Surround has been chosen as the
official surround sound broadcast format for
XM Satellite Radio's "XM HD Surround", as
well as other leading FM/HD radio stations
