Samsung 2010 Flat Panel HDTVs feature SRS TheaterSound
The advanced sound system technologies of SRS (Sound Retrieval System) Labs have actually already been adapted in a vast range of products including TVs, A/V receivers, sound bars, cell phones, headphones and computers from leading brands such as LG, Sony, Toshiba, Pioneer and Motorola. And they recently announced that the 2010 Samsung LED and Plasma HDTVs are shipping equipped with their most advanced audio solution, the SRS TheaterSound for HDTV. The system provides up to a 5.1 surround sound using built-in TV speakers and promises to be effectively delivering sound without such commonly encountered audio problems as “abrupt volume fluctuations, unintelligible vocals and dimension-less sound”.
“We designed SRS TheaterSound to set a new standard of excellence for HDTV audio performance and we’re thrilled to work alongside Samsung to bring it to consumers the world over,” said Allen H. Gharapetian, Vice President of Marketing for SRS Labs. “The advanced, innovative audio technologies within SRS TheaterSound provide a remarkably rich, theater-like experience over the built-in internal speakers of new Samsung HDTV models.”
SRS TheaterSound, which is available in new Samsung HDTVs, is an all-in-one audio suite that directly addresses the three most common consumer TV audio complaints – inconsistent volume levels, unintelligible vocals, and poor, dimension-less sound. SRS TheaterSound provides the following feature benefits:
Automatically detects and consistently levels abrupt volume fluctuations that normally occur when TV programming switches to commercial break or while changing channels.
Intelligently separates vocals from all other content and dynamically adjusts the dialog level to ensure it’s always clearly understood.
Delivers up to a 5.1 surround sound experience from multichannel content using built-in TV speakers, and significantly enhances both depth and dimension.
“Samsung is committed to providing the very best in home entertainment,” said John Revie, Senior Vice President of Home Entertainment for Samsung Electronics America. “We are proud to be the first to roll out SRS TheaterSound and deliver a brand new, immersive sound quality experience to our customers through our new HDTVs models and address a variety of their audio needs.”
SRS TheaterSound is available in the 2010 Samsung LED and Plasma HDTVs as well as Samsung LCD models.
