TRITON DIGITAL's streaming division has licensed FRAUNHOFER IIS' surround sound codecs for its Internet streaming audio. TRITON will use FRAUNHOFER's MPEG Surround and HE-AAC audio codecs in its streams.
"Now more than ever, Internet radio has to compete with various HD media offerings for the consumer's attention at home, on-the-go and even in cars. The audience expects the highest audio quality, similar to HDTV or DVD, especially when using high-end speakers," said HARALD POPP, head of the Multimedia Realtime Systems department at FRAUNHOFER IIS. "This quality expectation often includes surround sound, and our efficient codecs enable broadcasters to deliver this immersive experience to their listeners at affordable and reliable bitrates."
"We selected FRAUNHOFER audio codecs to provide our customers with a flexible and future-proof audio solution that meets consumers' high quality expectations in any given listening environment," said YVES ERIC LALIBERTE, president of TRITON DIGITAL's streaming division.
