Sound tech to benefit gaming products

Turtle Beach, makers of fine gaming headsets, has just announced plans to acquire Parametric Sound Corporation in a reverse merger. The transaction is scheduled to close before the end of the year. This small San Diego-bawed sound company sits on audio technology that Turtle Beach feels could further their audio products.

This morning's press release says that Parametric's audio tech provides an immersive audio experience that existing speakers cannot match. The company also brings expertise in digital signal processing that will fit nicely with gaming products.

Most interesting is their HyperSound directional audio technology, which delivers audio in a directional beam using thin sound emitters. It's used now in retail signage, but they hope to put it to use in videogame audio, computers, mobile devices, and in home audio.
