Video is only half of a home theater experience; the other half is audio, ideally surround sound. On January 6, 2010, SRS Labs announced the availability of SRS StudioSound HD, an all-in-one audio solution available for flat panel televisions and home theater sound bars. The solution optimizes the built-in audio system and industrial design of flat-screen TVs or sound bars to deliver the ultimate combination of immersive surround sound, intelligent volume leveling and dialog enhancement.
SRS develops and implements key audio technologies for the TV market. To penetrate deeper within the HDTV and related markets, SRS developed StudioSound HD all-in-one audio suite with the three most common consumer TV audio complaints in mind - inconsistent volume levels, unintelligible vocals, and poor, dimension-less sound. SRS StudioSound HD is designed to automatically detect and level abrupt volume fluctuations that normally occur when programming switches to commercial break or while changing channels.
Additionally, it intelligently separates vocals from all other content and dynamically adjusts the dialog level to ensure that it's always clearly understood. Studio Sound HD delivers a surround sound experience using built-in TV speakers, significantly enhancing depth and dimension.
Besides addressing top complaints among consumers when watching TV, SRS Studio Sound HD also includes the latest generation of TruSurround HD. This audio solution renders 5.1 surround sound to effectively provide deep, rich bass, high-frequency definition and an overall broadening of the sound stage in any listening environment. SRS StudioSound HD also dynamically brings out subtle nuances and rich sounds buried in the original source content. SRS StudioSound HD accepts up to 6.1 channels of input and currently outputs all audio over 2 discrete channels.
It takes deliberate effort to immerse your home theater audience in sound worthy of high definition television programming. The HDTV by itself is not enough.
