Telecom Lead Asia: Samsung has tied up with CSR aptX
audio codec to offer CD-quality stereo over Bluetooth wireless connectivity for
its latest flagship smartphone.
Having the aptX audio codec in this Samsung smartphone
reaffirms our success in the mass market adoption of this technology as the de
facto method for delivering high-quality stereo audio over Bluetooth wireless
connections,” said Anthony Murray, business group SVP of CSR.
As consumers experience the remarkable audio quality it
achieves, we believe the proliferation of aptX technology in consumer
electronics products such as this will be a catalyst for growth in the
Bluetooth stereo audio market,” Murray added.
HTC One Series smartphone, the Motorola RAZR and other
smartphones and personal computer operating systems, as well as multiple
products from consumer electronics companies, including Nokia, Monster,
Sennheiser and Creative are already using aptX.
CSR claims that many more products are expected to be
announced throughout the rest of this year.
CSR aptX audio coding technology is designed to replace
the standard audio codec Bluetooth employs for streaming stereo audio
wirelessly from audio devices to headphones and speakers, delivering improved,
high-fidelity sound comparable to the CD quality consumers have come to expect
from their home entertainment systems.
