The Texas Instruments has integrated SRS TruSurround HDTM/HD4 software into its PurePath Studio, a graphical development environment used for digital audio product creation.
The SRS TruSurround software is developed by US-based SRS Labs. The Texas Instruments’ (TI) PurePath Studio software features a graphical development environment (GDE) where advanced audio process flows can be implemented by dragging and dropping software components in place, resulting in not a single line of code having to be written.
PurePath Studio GDE works with the TAS3208, the core device in flat-panel digital TV audio systems. The combined technology can increase the availability of high-quality sound in audio systems with a small form factor.
The integrated audio development environment supports three of TI’s TAS3208, TAS3204 and TAS3108 audio processors, which target audio for a range of home entertainment applications including digital TVs, TV accessories and iPod/MP3 docking stations.
Joanna Skrdlant, senior director of the platform partner program at SRS Labs, said: With the high performance and precision available with the TAS320x, we are able to focus on implementing algorithms such as SRS TruSurround HD to provide the highest quality audio possible for our customers. TI makes our advanced technology readily accessible to OEMs who want to create truly differentiated products based on the highest quality audio possible, and they offer it at an attractive price point.
