Sontia Partnership with THX
Sontia is proud to announce our partnership with THX®. We will work together to create innovative sound processing technology that enhances audio performance and reduces development and production costs for consumer electronics manufacturers.
Due to the explosion of media across different platforms, there are many types of new speakers available today. Based on consumer interest and demand, manufacturers have been looking for a way to improve sound quality in small, thin speakers used in the majority of today’s portable devices – and at the same time, keep production costs in check. Sontia and THX are bringing an innovative solution to market with interest to date from home theater, tablet, auto and speaker companies.
“THX has proved to be a trusted brand, known for providing the ultimate benchmark and quality standards to deliver best-in-class entertainment,” said Chris Vernon, CEO, Sontia. “With its thought leadership and deep subject matter knowledge of quality sound, THX will help to ensure that these collaborative products deliver the maximum level of performance possible and the overall experience consumers expect from the THX brand.”
Sontia and THX will work together to carefully analyze products and evaluate their capabilities, leveraging both Sontia’s critical testing lab and THX’s regime of precision tests. The goal of a two-layer testing approach is to provide the optimal audio performance relative to individual products.
“We are committed to working with our industry partners to ensure that any products and technologies that we help develop or certify define quality in their class,” said Matt Chrispen, director, business development, THX Ltd. “Our partnership with Sontia represents a particularly innovative expression of this commitment. Together, we will offer improved audio performance across a variety of consumer electronic products where small speakers could be enhanced with this technology – from smart phones, to headphones, to sound bars and other smaller-sized speakers.”
