Total Technology™ audio enhancement gives consumers sound bar-quality audio from built-in TV speakers

Las Vegas, NV,  – dbx-tv® today announced a partnership with TCL, the world’s third largest TV manufacturer and America’s fastest-growing TV brand.  TCL will include dbx-tv’s award-winning Total Technology™ audio enhancement suite with their new P3 series of TVs, scheduled for global release in early 2017. The Total Technology audio suite, used by more than 80 brands in over 50 countries, adds audio clarity and definition that matches the detailed picture quality of today’s 4K television sets. 

TCL’s P3 series will include three key audio technologies from dbx-tv:

  • Total Sonics™ – allows built-in speakers to generate crisp, detailed sound with deeper bass and decreased distortion, resulting in audio quality that matches today’s advanced displays.
  • Total Surround™ – delivers immersive surround sound through the existing TV speakers – enveloping listeners in vibrant audio.
  • Total Volume™ – tames loudness spikes and intensifies quiet dialog, creating a consistent and enjoyable listening experience.  

“Our P3 TV series carries the most advanced ecological HDR technology in the industry, the TCL eco HDR, which provides our customers with the highest HDR standard picture quality,” said Chen Zhen Yuan, General Manager of TCL. “That means the picture has higher brightness dynamic range, a wider color field, and crispier pictorial details. We searched for an audio enhancement solution that would match our radiant picture, and found dbx-tv to deliver what we were looking for.”

“Today’s TV sets offer the consumer better video than ever before, while our technology helps built-in speakers keep pace with the displays,” said Les Tyler, President of THAT Corporation (dbx-tv’s parent).  “We’re excited to partner with TCL – a global leader and innovator in this market.  Through 35 research centers around the world, TCL has made a major commitment to display and audio innovation.  We’re honored that TCL chose dbx-tv to deliver the high standard of audio quality that TCL’s customers expect from their TVs for the most captivating experience possible at a reasonable price.”

dbx-tv’s Total Technology audio processing is customized to suit each specific TV model’s speakers, amplifiers, and cabinet.  This results in an acoustic performance that complements the display performance of the most advanced televisions. TVs with integrated Total Technology enhancement sound as if they are equipped with much bigger, more powerful speakers than consumers would expect to find built in to today’s ultra-thin TVs.
