Audio Codec Delivers “7th Row Center” Sound To Mobile Listeners

Headphone users enjoy a realistic virtual 3D sound space with the Vinyl VT1610 audio codec, which integrates DTS Surround Sensation Ultra PC with Head Tracker headphone technology. It provides the listener with a fixed forward-facing sound stage creating a perception of a virtual space that renders the ideally-balanced acoustics traditionally associated with the best seat in the house—7th row center. If dialogue is coming through the phantom center channel and the listener turns toward the right, the sound stage remains fixed and the audio will be heard stronger through the left headphone, resulting in a more natural and immersive listening experience. The VIA Vinyl VT1610 audio codec is a highly integrated chip for USB audio designs. It includes a USB 2.0 full-speed interface, one stereo headphone output, and four microphone input channels (supporting analog or digital microphones). The VIA Vinyl VT1610 is supplied in an ultra-thin package, allowing for very compact PCB design. The company also provides a demo board and a technical support.
