Research and development of software, hardware and services for audio
New technologies and formats for production, distribution and reproduction
of spatial, personalizable and interactive sound
The market for digital sound media is quite diversified.
New paradigms go with solutions which are flexible, reconfigurable,
interactive, scalable and personalizable.
We conduct research and developments projects in audiovisual engineering.
In our projects we priorize the use of state-of-the-art technologies in digital coding,
multichannel audio and sound immersion (sound 2D/3D).
Services we can do:
Applied technological research
Research and development of software, IP's, DSP algorithms, audio circuits and
equipments - eg. scalable amplifiers, high-density channel sound distribution systems, etc.
Design and implementation of audio and video solutions, specific applications and services.
Surround decoders: example of a mpeg-aac decoder with
multichannel output, for surround sound.
Some examples of technologies we can work with:
Surround n.m (5.1, 6.1, 7.1, 10.2, etc.)
Coding and decoding of multichannel audio in several formats: MPEG-1/2, MP3, AAC, MP4, MPEG-4 and MPEG-7
SAC (Spatial Audio Coding) and MPEG Surround
Ambisonics, Wave Field Synthesis
DVD-Audio, DSD/SACD, WMA, OGG Vorbis, FLAC, and others
Protocols for distribution/transport of audio.
Sonic Virtual Reality: example of a virtual sound space, creating a sensation of
the instruments positioned surrounding the listener.
Areas we can develop solutions and applications, and implement strategic
conception of new products and services:
Technologies for multichannel and surround sound production
Interactive digital music/audio players (for
desktops e portable)
Software for sonic virtual reality
Surround players and decoders
Sistems for acoustic rooms simulations, for production, edition and projection of acoustic
sound scene 3D.
Loudspeakers arrays/matrixes for immersive audio
User interfaces for playing platforms and audio processing programs
Modules (hardware and software) and audio sub-systms for DTV receptors
Transcoding among multichannel and surround audio formats
Compressors (encoders) in high definition (HD)
Systems for coding and classification
Systems for storage and distribution
Software for music analysis, processing and synthesis
Technologies for managing sound material/content
We also work with training and technical education in
multichannel audio and surround.
