PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Voice Quality Labs announced the DHP-501 today, a breakthrough product that is targeted at the mobile market. The DHP-501 is an automatic handset positioner that enables dynamic positioning of a handset for test purposes. This state of the art equipment, together with its PC-based control software, offers dynamic and accurate control over spatial placement. The DHP-501 is fully programmable, enabling deterministic and repeatable positioning without the need for human intervention.
"This is the only product that truly addresses the new audio challenges of the mobile phone market," said Managing Partner Karim Younes. "Today's handsets boast multiple microphones and advanced audio features, and it is no longer sufficient to test audio quality in one fixed position. This is why all major operators and standards bodies are adding test conditions that specifically evaluate audio quality in the multiple different way in which people use handsets. The DHP-501 is the only positioner that supports these essential test scenarios."
Highly configurable and easy to manipulate remotely, the DHP-501 can be controlled to conform precisely to standard handset positions – such as the "Recommended Test Position" or RTP as defined in ITU-T recommendation P.64 or IEEE 269 – as well as an extensive number of custom test positions. In addition, the ability of the DHP-501 to be operated remotely and quietly allows advanced testing scenarios, such as acoustic noise cancellation while a handset is in motion.
The DHP-501 is available now from Voice Quality labs and is supported by suites of test software and services from VQL to aid in incorporating the DHP-501 into existing test suites currently used by handset developers. The DHP-501 is compatible with Bruel & Kjaer, Head Acoustics and Kemar head and torso mannequins.
