Audio technology expert Dolby Laboratories has announced the first adoption of Dolby Axon, its 3D voice communication platform, in two upcoming online games. Dolby Axon will enable a realistic 3D voice experience that matches the game environment and, as its developers promises, ensures clear signal.

Dolby Axon technology significantly increases realism of communications between gamers and adds special effects to match the in-game environment. Distance attenuation makes voices become louder as players approach one another within the game, or softer as the distance between players increases. Surround panning helps players locate competitors spatially within the game environment.

Dolby Axon also features an occlusion engine that further enhances the realism of voice communication. Because the Dolby Axon server dynamically responds to game geometry, players are able to hear around corners, for example, but not through walls. Likewise, the voice of a player who steps behind a solid barrier becomes harder to hear, just as it would in real life.

Moreover, voice fonts allow players to alter their voices to better match their in-game personas.

Jumpgate Evolution, 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 and will be the first titles to implement it.
