*Cadence – New audio solution enables emerging multi-channel object-based standards* | (via @electropages) - #CDNS

With emerging object-based audio standards, individual sounds become objects that can be placed anywhere in a room. Instead of being mixed at a recording studio, these sounds are mixed on the fly at each location where they are played back. The object-based audio system calculates where the sound should emanate so that it appears in roughly the same space, no matter where speakers are located. This provides a more natural and immersive sound experience, and requires much more DSP processing power. Instead of having to use multiple DSPs to accomplish this, designers can now get the DSP power they need from one core – the HiFi 4 DSP. Cadence’s Tensilica HiFi 4 DSP is a highly optimized audio/voice processor geared for efficient execution of audio and voice codecs and pre- and post-processing modules as well as other demanding DSP functions in areas such as wireless communica...
