Audyssey Brings Immersive Sound to Toshiba Europe's New Full HD Televisions

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 5, 2012) - Audyssey, a leader in audio technology for the home, automotive, mobile and theater markets, today announced that Toshiba has included Audyssey Premium Television in its new Smart TV VL963 series of Full HD televisions in Europe. This is the latest collaboration in the partnership between the companies, with Audyssey providing the audio technology to enable rich, lifelike sound to match the brilliant display of Toshiba's HD televisions.

Recent developments in television design have resulted in TVs with larger screens and slimmer profiles. Video quality has continued to improve, but ensuring high-quality audio proved challenging because of the reduced space in the TV cabinet which restricted speaker placement.

"Having a thin TV should not mean having thin sound," said Chris Kyriakakis, CTO of Audyssey. "We thoroughly researched the acoustics and psychoacoustics of TV sound systems and developed technologies that allowed Toshiba's engineers to find acoustic solutions, resulting in outstanding audio output to match the TV's HD video clarity."

Audyssey Premium Television works to integrate greatly improved audio output into Toshiba's slim TVs. Specifically, Audyssey EQ addresses the tendency towards muffled sound that can be caused by some acoustical limitations in the TV enclosure, ABX extends the lower-end response of smaller speakers and Dynamic Volume makes sure the softest and loudest sounds in the content are properly translated to better fit within the dynamic range of the TV's audio system.
