HD Soundlab as
- HD Soundlab as is a company that develops sound technology and sound algorithms for commercial use (HDS).
- HDS is a technology that significantly enhances the quality of computer audio. The downloadable software is a major step forward in sound quality compared to stereo & surround.
- The official HDSoundLab e-commerce website features information about High Definition Stereo or HDS, an innovative technology that truly enhances the listening pleasure and quality of computer audio. Convincing video-demos are available, as well as HDS software that may be downloaded in trial or commercial versions for Windows, OSX or Linux.
In brief, High Definition Stereo (HDS) is a technology in software that opens up for a more exact and
natural sound than traditional stereo and surround. Sonic improvements are most often audible as a
general refinement. And while normal stereo tends to limit the soundstage in between the loudspeakers, HDS is stepping past this boundary, literally filling the room with a holographic and ambient soundstage, if allowed for by the quality of the recording.
HDS represents a major step forward in the modern listening experience. It is dedicated to all people in their everyday music, movie & media consummation, be it on small portable speakers or in advanced setups as the natural companion to the emerging Blue-ray & HDTV formats.
Being compliant and transparent to commonly used multimedia codecs, HDS will enhance the sound quality on almost any multichannel audio stream, and is suited for a wide variety of modern audio equipment, like:
- Laptop and desktop computers (OS X, Windows, Linux),
- mobile phones and mp3 players with stereo speakers or connected to a music docking station,
- widescreen TVs and sound bars.
And of course, the true potential of HDS can really be exposed when combined with top quality multichannel systems utilizing 192KHz sample rate and 24bit.
HDS is available for any Windows version, both as a standalone application (HDS app) and as a so called VST plugin for professional use. (VST version will become available soon).
Please note that HDS for Mac OS X is currently in validation, expected to be available within the first quarter of 2011. Thanks for your patience. HDS will be available for Mac OS X, both as a VST or AU plugin, and as a standalone application (HDS app)
