Audyssey Named as CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award Honoree

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) - Audyssey, a leader in audio technology for the home, automotive and theater markets, today announced that it has been named an International CES innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Awards honoree for MultEQ XT32. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting-edge consumer electronics products across 35 product categories.

Audyssey invested more than two years of R&D resources and countless hours of algorithm development in MultEQ XT32, the latest version of its MultEQ technology. It's not often that algorithms compute more data while taking up fewer resources, yet that's precisely what Audyssey managed with this new technology. Using multiple sampling rates in the measurement and filter synthesis process, the company derived a method that increases the resolution of the MultEQ XT filters by a factor of 32, giving MultEQ XT32 more than ten thousand individual control points to achieve the desired response.

This huge increase in resolution is applied equally to all channels, including the subwoofer. The most obvious benefit will be in the low frequency range where correction is needed the most.

The prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. It is sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, the producer of the International CES, the world's largest consumer technology tradeshow.

Audyssey's MultEQ XT32 will be displayed at the 2011 International CES, which runs January 6-9, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase will feature honorees by product category in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center and will also be featured at CES Unveiled: The Official Press Event of the International CES on Tuesday, January 4.

The Innovations entries are judged based on the following criteria:

  • Engineering qualities, based on technical specs and materials used
  • Aesthetic and design qualities
  • The product's intended use/function and user value
  • Unique/novel features that consumers would find attractive
  • How the design and innovation of the product compare to other products in the marketplace

Products chosen as Innovations honorees reflect innovative design and engineering of the entries. Examples may include the first time various technologies are combined in a single product or dramatic enhancements to previous product designs.

Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering honoree products are featured on, which lists product categories, as well as each product name, manufacturer information, designer, description, photo and URL.
