Funding will be used to complete the development of intelligent audio solutions.
Whether it’s a phone, tablet, car, or virtual reality (VR), audio is a very important part of most people’s lives. One Swedish company, Dirac, is constantly striving to improve audio technology. She recently announced the closure of a £ 13.2 million investment round.
Thanks to investments, Dirac Research will be able to complete the development of intelligent audio solutions that combine digital audio processing with AI, machine learning, cloud computing and more. In turn, this will help technology companies create suitable audio platforms for new technologies, such as AR / VR headsets, 5G smartphones, autonomous vehicles, smart homes, and more.
“As consumer devices become smaller and smaller, digital signal processing is key to unlocking their full audio potential and creating a premium audio experience. Using the funding we have received, we can use our approach to digitizing sound systems even more professionally – creating more intelligent and adaptive sound processing solutions that set new standards for both sound reproduction and capture in various applications, ”said Dirac CEO Mathias Johansson in his message.
“In this way, we have established ourselves as the industry’s leading universal manufacturer for the entire premium digital audio system and provide customers with the best sound experience for every use case.”
To manage all of its future initiatives, the company appointed former senior vice president of research and development at Harman International, Armin Prommersberger, as chief technology officer and opened the Copenhagen Research Center.
“Thanks to a new round of funding, combined with the appointment of Armin and the opening of the Copenhagen Research Center, Dirac holds a strong position as a leader in the development of digital signal processing technologies that will support devices today and tomorrow,” concluded Johansson.
Dirac Research has spent many years refining its audio solutions, creating a customer base that includes Bentley, Rolls Royce, BMW, Volvo, Huawei, OPPO, Xiaomi, Motorola and Harman.
As Dirac continues to make unique audio solutions for virtual and augmented reality, VRcue will keep you informed.
