Company launches a licensing initiative to put their DSP technology into other products 08/10/07
BIAS, Inc. has announced a new licensing program to make powerful digital signal processing technologies originally developed for its own products available for inclusion in other products in the audio space and beyond.
Founded in 1996, BIAS is known for its family of digital audio software products, including the Peak Pro and Peak LE audio editors, Master Perfection Suite mastering plug-ins, and SoundSoap Pro and SoundSoap 2 audio restoration tools. Underlying key features of these programs are a number of proprietary, advanced technologies developed by the company, which are now being offered for licensed use in a broad range of audio and other applications.
The first four technologies being made available are:
Partial Harmonic Audio Technology (PHAT), a high-quality analysis/resynthesis engine
Dither Cloning Audio Technology (DCAT), which can model TDPF dither with any noise-shaping curve
Ultimate Sample Rate Conversion (USRC), an accurate sample rate conversion scheme capable of producing audio at sample rates of any real number
Corrective Linear-Phase Noise Reduction (CLNR), a suite of noise reduction and removal algorithms.
BIAS' use of the licensable technologies in its own products has given the company the opportunity to optimize performance of the algorithms to provide extremely high audio quality, while maintaining the lowest possible CPU usage.
Jason E. Davies, VP of Sales and Marketing for BIAS, inc. told us, "For years, BIAS has successfully provided special editions of our retail solutions to OEM partners and we will continue this into the future. The addition of our new technology licensing program will provide partners the additional opportunity to integrate some of our very best DSP technologies directly into their products."
To increase awareness of the licensing initiative and understanding of the available technologies, the company has issued a white paperMore information:
