DSP Enables Xbox Surround Sound

Spherex developed the Xbox 5.1 surround sound system based on the TI Aureus audio DSP, setting a new standard for video game audio. The six-speaker Xbox 5.1 system with state-of-the-art sound processing supplied by TI’s Aureus DSP provides surround sound for the entire home theatre. The new multimedia audio platform by Spherex was also a finalist in TechTV’s "Best of CES" awards, given for the most innovative products introduced in the 2004 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Priced at less than $500, the Xbox 5.1 system incorporates all current popular surround sound formats and multiple audio inputs, allowing simultaneous support for up to five directly connected and networked audio sources. Audio inputs can include the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and other gaming consoles, DVD and CD players, satellite TV, MP3/WMA compressed audio, PC and Internet radio. Spherex, a subsidiary of Audio Products International Corp (API), one of the world’s largest loudspeaker manufacturers, designed the Xbox 5.1 system to take advantage of technology normally used in much more expensive audio systems. TI’s TMS320DA601 audio DSP is at the heart of the system, enabling high-fidelity sound reproduction by decoding audio standards such as Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic II and DTS, while still having the processing headroom for advanced acoustic features such as bass extension and audio dynamics. "We selected TI’s Aureus audio DSP for the Xbox 5.1 system because of the outstanding performance, flexibility and cost effectiveness of the device", said Alex Romanov, President and CEO.
