Most movie fans have heard the THX Deep Note sound effect playing before a favorite film. But, what exactly is THX? Is it the same as Dolby Surround Sound or DTS?
A recent study by THX reveals an additional benefit to video calibration—energy savings. Beyond fine tuning picture quality for watching movies and sports programs, professional calibration improves an HDTV’s energy efficiency by up to 50 percent.
The storyline for Amazing Life provided a fun and entertaining way to demonstrate the power and performance of a THX Certified Cinema’s surround sound and projection system, while getting audiences excited for the feature presentation.
THX and Runco have teamed to bring THX certification to the Runco VX-33i and VX-33d DLP® home cinema projectors and the QuantumColor™ Q-750i and Q-750d lampless LED home theater projectors.
According to Engadget, the new TiVo Premiere and Premiere XL let you search and sort for programs by season, episode and cast members. They also let you search across media sources, including cable programming, Amazon, Netflix and YouTube. This means if you type in “THX,” you might just find THX trailers on YouTube or the classic Lucasfilm flick “THX 1138” (along with other THX Certified titles) on Netflix.
