SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SRS Labs (Nasdaq: SRSL), the industry leader in surround sound, audio, and voice technologies, today announced the availability of SRS StudioSound HD(TM), the most advanced and effective all-in-one audio solution available for flat panel televisions and home theater sound bars. The state-of-the-art solution suite optimizes the built-in audio system and industrial design of flat-screen TVs or sound bars to deliver the ultimate combination of immersive surround sound, intelligent volume leveling and dialog enhancement.


SRS is the industry leader in the development and implementation of key audio technologies for the TV market. To penetrate deeper within the HDTV and related markets, SRS developed StudioSound HD all-in-one audio suite with the three most common consumer TV audio complaints in mind - inconsistent volume levels, unintelligible vocals, and poor, dimension-less sound. SRS StudioSound HD is designed to automatically detect and level abrupt volume fluctuations that normally occur when programming switches to commercial break or while changing channels. Additionally, it intelligently separates vocals from all other content and dynamically adjusts the dialog level to ensure that it's always clearly understood. Finally, StudioSound HD delivers the best possible surround sound experience using built-in TV speakers, significantly enhancing depth and dimension.

"SRS StudioSound HD is another great example of how SRS continues to develop ground-breaking audio solutions," said Allen H. Gharapetian, Vice President of Marketing for SRS Labs. "We closely monitor the needs and wants of the consumers and our engineers continue advancing the science and art of psychoacoustics by developing new and intuitive solutions specifically designed to further enhance the listening experience of all CE devices and address audio challenges inherent in today's slim and stylish audio-visual products. We value the opportunity to work closely with our partners throughout the development process to ensure that each product that wears the SRS logo delivers a remarkable listening experience."

Besides addressing top complaints among consumers when watching TV, SRS Studio Sound HD also includes the latest generation of TruSurround HD(TM). This patented audio solution renders 5.1 surround sound to effectively provide deep, rich bass, high-frequency definition and an overall broadening of the sound stage in any listening environment. SRS StudioSound HD also dynamically brings out subtle nuances and rich sounds buried in the original source content. SRS StudioSound HD accepts up to 6.1 channels of input and currently outputs all audio over 2 discrete channels.
