GPS was created out of frustration with existing 5.1 simulator / converters.
The consumer demand for 5.1 release of classic material places extreme pressure on our clients (Record Labels and Film Studios). They are faced with two options:
Every "magic box" on the market failed to meet the professional criteria we established at GPS. They all suffer from instability of surround playback, program dependency, phase distortion of the original signal, and the adulteration of the original mix.
We at GPS feel that maintaining the Artist's/Director's original intent is instrumental in generating our 3D surround field from either a mono or stereo source. This is paramount both in a commercial marketing sense as well as a profound respect for the classic title we've all grown to love.
We developed an Algorithm on a proprietary system to satisfy our above criterion. The Algorithm was meticulously coded after an exhaustive analysis of vaious mono and stereo audio sources.
The GPS process has the unique ability of decoding directional queues, even in Mono sources. This results in an uncanny canopy effect (a 3D or aptly described by test subjects as holographic) in the surround field whereby original reflections from the source material become more apparent. Any dynamic manipulation evoked by the sound effects recordist/editor or the original mixer, either through panning, delays, or reverb etc. are faithfully represented in the surround field. In the case of film titles, there is a remarkable enhancement of sound effects, music track, foley, and room ambience. In the case of music titles, there is an exciting enhancement of drum transients, bass definition, guitar/violin/horn/piano dynamics, synth pads, background vocals, etc. Unlike 5.1 systems with momo panning, GPS places you in the middle of the existing source material.
