Meet Ex, the patented engine that drives Vortx, and uses what you see and hear to craft intricate experiences on the fly.

EX

FEEL THE BURN.

Realtime Heat Detection

Insanely fast heatsource detection.

Vortx analyzes your screen in realtime, and looks for possible sources of heat. These areas of interest get processed and filtered by our scene-aware EX engine, that translates what you see and hear into realtime heat impulses. These impulses are then delivered directly to your face via the Vortx environmental simulator. All of these steps happen very quickly, contributing to a total system latency of under 1/50th of a second.

MOTIONFLOWTM

Complex Motion Analytics.

Part of comprehending the action in a scene is understanding how the camera is moving relative to its surroundings. Motionflow analyzes per-pixel motion in realtime, and can accurately detect player direction and perspective camera behavior. It's designed to be fast, and augment the haptic experience by adding extra airflow when you're flying around in an aircraft, racing in a car, or gliding into your next battle-royale match. Motionflow is sensitive enough to detect and react intelligently when you're in a cockpit, or outside of your vehicle in third-person view.

AUDIO FEATURE EXTRACTION

Intelligent Audio Analysis.

Audio analytics have long been a part of production haptics. We've raised the bar with complex filtering and intelligent detection, to make sure that the sounds you don't want to feel stay out of the way, while amplifying the big moments in your games. Spectral density categorization, harmonic analysis, distortion detection, and other crafty tricks allow us to deliver an experience that is perfectly translated into impactful desktop airflow.
