In a rather surprising move, Razer announced that they bought THX on Monday. This means that Razer has first access and rights to THX licensing and this in turn could be a bit of a conflict of interest for competing VR and audio companies. I'm sure that steps will be taken to make sure standards are still equal across the board, but you can bet that Razer will be the first company with "THX Certified" VR.
The cinema certification outfit founded by George Lucas will keep its management and employees (phew) and will continue to operate as it has for the past 33 years just under a new owner, according to a prepared statement. "With their focus on quality, design and innovation, Razer supports our vision to optimize and deliver the best audiovisual experiences to audiences worldwide," THX CEO Ty Ahmad-Taylor said in a canned press release quote.
