Several former audio manufacturing executives and engineers have joined forces to simplify the integration of digital audio with video signals.
Nigel Spratling and George Smith have joined Steve Strassberg and Tim Carroll as partners within Linear Acoustic, a 1-year-old audio engineering and manufacturing company.
Linear Acoustic markets the OCTiMAX 5.1 DTV audio processor and upMAX 2251 5.1-channel surround-field synthesizer.
The new partners said they understand the problems associated with audio signal management in post production and broadcast environments and are focused on improving the current situation.
Carroll said he is looking forward to working together to introduce several new technologies that will finally help broadcasters solve many infrastructure gaps and deliver surround sound to all of their audiences more easily and cost effectively.
