President Leslie Tyler Offers High-Quality Audio Strategies for TV Manufacturers

dbx-tv®, a leading provider of audio intellectual property to the television industry, today announced Leslie Tyler, President, will present “Using TV Audio to Enhance TV Viewing” to an audience of world-leading TV manufacturers at the 2011 DisplaySearch China FPD & HDTV Conference in Shenzhen, China.

At the conference, Tyler will address growing consumer demand for high-quality audio in the TV-viewing experience, and highlight strategies and solutions that address the challenges of contemporary TV design. Mr. Tyler will provide an overview of dbx-tv’s licensed audio product suite – Total Sonics™ for enhancing TV audio, Total Cal™ to automatically calibrate the Total Sonics package to match individual TV models, and Total Volume™ for automatic volume-control management.

“As TVs become thinner, and bezel real-estate disappears, speaker size shrinks and audio performance becomes compromised,” said Tyler, President, THAT Corporation (dbx-tv’s parent company). “With our audio enhancement algorithms embedded in their TV designs, manufacturers can compensate for small speaker size or acoustically compromised placement to ensure the listening experience measures up to the HD viewing experience.”
