Dolby Unveils Axon 3D Voice Technology

To spice up the gaming sector, Dolby Laboratories has announced the release of Dolby Axon 3D, a voice communication platform, in two upcoming online games.

Jumpgate Evolutio, a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game by NetDevil, and Mission Against Terror, an online first-person shooter (FPS) game by Kingsoft, will allow their players to experience an entirely new level of immersion in game play with Dolby’s Axon voice technology.

“Dolby Axon offers us the highest quality 3D voice communication system available for our title. Dolby is a leader in audio that has shown a commitment to improving the voice chat experience in online games. It is cost-effective and we are excited at the great new game play experience Dolby Axon will offer our users,” said Hermann Peterscheck, Producer at NetDevil.

“The audio quality of Dolby Axon is unmatched and its creative API has brought a whole new dimension to voice in Mission Against Terror,” said Mr. Wang Dachuan, Mission Against Terror Project Director. “The integration was rapid and the support provided by the team of Dolby engineers second to none.”

“Whether it’s engaging in intergalactic dogfights or executing military missions, Dolby Axon enables players to better coordinate with their teammates,” said Matt Tullis, Senior Marketing Manager for Games at Dolby Laboratories. “We’re pleased to have worked so closely with NetDevil and Kingsoft in making it possible for them to offer an incredible 3D voice experience in their respective games.”
