In another strategic link-up between a major player and a relative newcomer,
Canada's QSound Labs, a developer of audio, e-commerce and multimedia
software products, and Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands, say
they now have a joint development agreement to produce, "innovative digital
audio solutions targeted for the multi-channel soundcard market and other
consumer electronics products."
Philips will combine its expertise in the soundcard and overall CE markets
with QSound's, "unique audio enhancement technologies and award-winning
audio-processing algorithms," say the two, continuing:
"As a result, Philips will be able to speed time to market of best-of-breed
digital audio products for both the PC and CE space, ultimately delivering
advanced surround-sound capabilities designed to enhance the user's audio
experience. Specifically, QSound offers unmatched technology that will, in
turn, allow Philips to transform ordinary stereo music, games and movies to
true surround-sound mediums-helping further differentiate Philips' products
from the competition."
Philips already uses QSound's technology in its Rhythmic Edge, Seismic Edge
and Acoustic Edge sound cards.
