Germany,United Kingdom : CSR Advances the Smart Home Audio and Control Experience at IFA 2012.

CSR plc, entered the Smart Home arena this week at the IFA 2012 consumer electronics show with an extensive line-up of high-quality audio and wireless connectivity technologies, demonstrating how these solutions can be used to create the next generation of highly immersive wireless home audio entertainment systems, advanced remote controls and flexible home automation systems. In the company s booth (Hall 1.2, Stand 142) and in private meeting rooms, CSR demonstrations offer a peek at the interconnected roles that home audio and entertainment systems, home environmental systems and home appliances will play with smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices in the emerging Smart Home market and the technologies that will be required to provide the more advanced control required of them.

Powerful, high-quality audio with seamless BluetoothA and Wi-FiA wireless connectivity to digital media from an array of mobile devices and online services is an essential ingredient for creating highly immersive home entertainment experiences, and will be a central component of the Smart Home, said Anthony Murray, Business Group SVP at CSR. And of course consumers will want an app for controlling these entertainment systems, not to mention all the other home automation and environmental systems in the Smart Home, because that is what they have come to expect from their smartphones and tablets. This, in turn, will require the more sophisticated communications capabilities of Bluetooth SmartA technology.

According to Murray, the CSR demonstrations at IFA highlight the benefits consumer home audio manufacturers can achieve by being able to obtain complete digital audio solutions from a single supplier along with the Bluetooth, Bluetooth Smart and Wi-Fi technologies they need to control their products and integrate them into the Smart Home.

Sound bar demonstrations - Two private demonstrations of sound bars show how CSR technologies can be integrated to deliver highly immersive music experiences for consumer audio products. One combines the CSR MAP-X media application processor with the CSR8600 wireless audio platform to create the heart of a fully functional, high-definition audio sound bar. The other shows WOW HD audio enhancement technology running on the CSR8670 with the CSR aptXA audio codec and a CSR DDFAA power amplifier to provide a highly immersive audio experience, with cleaner, livelier audio quality, purer spatial information, advanced bass enhancement and an innovative centre control feature.
