Audio Precision APx Adds Bluetooth and HDMI Arc Support
Audio Precision this week released two new interface options for its APx500
series audio analyzers. The APx Bluetooth option measures audio over Bluetooth
wireless technology, and the HDMI option with Audio Return Channel (ARC)
measures ARC audio in HDMI 1.4a devices. At the same time, version 2.8 of the
APx500 software is released bringing support for the new interfaces and new
audio measurements and feature improvements.
The APx module’s built-in Bluetooth radio and stack allow
engineers to measure their Bluetooth devices directly, eliminating the
uncertainty, lack of control and inconvenience of third-party adapters. The APx
HDMI option has been updated to include the ARC, part of the HDMI 1.4a
specification (ARC allows two way audio over a single HDMI cable, so the need
for a separate audio cable to route TV audio to the receiver is eliminated).
The v2.8 upgrade for APx500 is available for download
immediately at no charge.
