Dolby Digital Live: real-time encoding technology. DDL converts any audio signal into a Dolby Digital bit stream (48kHz at 640 Kbps) through a single cable connection (coaxial or optical) to your Dolby Digital enabled surround sound system. The real-time interactive capabilities of DDL technology reproduce audio cues and effects that follow the on-screen action, capturing the essence of gameplay and transforming it into exciting and realistic entertainment.

Pro Logic IIx is the first and only technology to process any native stereo or 5.1 signal into a 6.1 or 7.1 channel output, creating a seamless, natural surround sound environment that immerses you in the entertainment experience.

Dolby ® Headphone technology allows you to listen to music, watch movies, and play video games with the dramatic surround effects of a 5.1 channel soundtrack through any set of headphones. Best of all, no more 'listener fatigue' means you can enjoy your entertainment in a spacious, natural sound field uninterrupted for hours. 

DTS INTERACTIVE: Take any LPCM (2+ channels) and encode it into DTS bit stream (48kHz at 1.5 Mbps). What does this mean? Connect directly with just a single cable connection (coaxial or optical) to your DTS enabled surround sound system. Stereo and multi-channel sources up to 5.1 are encoded into a DTS audio signal and sent out from the CLARO sound card to whatever DTS enabled system you own: powered PC speakers, an A/V receiver, any other surround decoder sound system. Eliminate the clutter and cost of multiple analog cables

DTS NEO:PC : PC is a matrix technology that instantly transforms any of your simple 2 channel audio into full 7.1 surround sound. Turn your stereo audio (WMA, MP3, CD among the formats available) into a convincing multi-channel audio experience. DTS NEO:6 has provided you with surround sound from stereo sources in your home theater, now NEO:PC is optimized for your laptop or desktop setup and is the perfect companion to DTS INTERACTIVE
