TinyCore processors are incorporated within a wide range of audio components including digital TVs, set-top boxes, mobile handsets, portable media devices, portable navigation devices and game consoles. The availability of TinyCore-optimized SRS StudioSound HD audio solution streamlines the development process of manufacturers that desire to take advantage of StudioSound HD's powerful feature set.

"We are excited about the launch of our new StudioSound HD and believe that the availability of the optimized version of this all-inclusive audio solution for Oxford-Digital's TinyCore processor will accelerate the adoption of this advanced suite by CE manufacturers around the globe," said Allen H. Gharapetian, Vice President of Marketing for SRS Labs, Inc.

SRS StudioSound HD addresses the three most common consumer TV audio complaints - inconsistent volume levels, unintelligible vocals, and poor, dimension-less sound. StudioSound HD automatically detects and levels abrupt volume fluctuations that occur when programming switches to commercial break or while changing channels. Additionally, the audio suite intelligently separates vocals from all other content and dynamically adjusts the dialog level to ensure that it's always clearly understood, all while delivering the best possible surround sound experience using built-in TV speakers, resulting in significantly enhanced depth and dimension.

John Richards, CEO, Oxford Digital said "We're delighted that SRS are making StudioSound HD available on the TinyCore platform. The ease of integration of this optimized solution for SoC and ASIC provides semiconductor manufacturers with an extremely efficient, low gatecount implementation combined with rapid time to market."
