Fraunhofer, Panasonic Team with Aupeo for Streaming 5.1 Demo
Erlangen, Germany, and Las Vegas - Jan 5, 2012 - Fraunhofer IIS, personal music service provider Aupeo and Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America (PASA) announced a collaboration to demonstrate the new Aupeo service at the 2012 CES in Las Vegas.
Aupeo uses Fraunhofer's MPEG Surround audio codec to deliver surround music streaming. According to Fraunhofer, "the bit rate efficiency of the codec allows for streaming over 3G/4G or Wi-Fi networks." Fraunhofer adds, "This high-quality surround codec provides a cost-efficient delivery of streaming surround audio at stereo bit rates as low as 64kb/s for 5.1-channels. MPEG Surround is compatible with existing stereo receivers and includes a binaural mode for playback of surround sound over common stereo headphones."
Fraunhofer will demonstrate the Aupeo Surround service in a living room setting at its CES booth #20417, and Panasonic Automotive Systems Company of America will exhibit a car head unit with integrated Fraunhofer MPEG Surround decoder built on PASA's Connected Infotainment Platform at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
