Onkyo Licenses CSR aptX® Audio Codec for New Audiophile Products

CSR plc (LSE: CSR; NASDAQ: CSRE) today announced that another name in audio excellence, Onkyo, has chosen the CSR aptX audio codec to deliver wireless audio over Bluetooth® with high fidelity sound quality. Onkyo has deployed CSR aptX initially in two products: its UBT-1 adapter and its CS-245BT “Colibrino” CD Hi-Fi Mini System.

The UBT-1 is a USB adapter allowing Bluetooth-enabled wireless phones, tablets, and other devices to stream music directly to networked receivers through a USB port, utilising CSR’s aptX technology to deliver high quality audio. Likewise, the new CS-245BT CD “Colibrino” Hi-Fi Mini-System, a high quality, compact personal audio system featuring Bluetooth audio connectivity, uses aptX to deliver superior wireless audio performance.

“For audio leaders such as Onkyo – in the business of delivering superior sound to audiophiles since 1946 – there was only one choice when they came to implement Bluetooth connectivity into their product range. That choice was CSR aptX,” said Anthony Murray, Business Group SVP of CSR. “Companies of Onkyo’s calibre and distinguished history are now adopting CSR aptX to maintain their commitments to customers in providing sound quality that is as authentic as is possible, and is further evidence that aptX is continuing to redefine the market for wireless audio streaming.”

This announcement is further evidence of the rapid acceleration in the industry adoption of aptX. Other recent aptX milestones include deployments in products from Samsung, HTC and Beats – to name just a few. CSR aptX audio coding technology solves the problem of inferior Bluetooth audio quality, delivering improved, high-fidelity sound comparable to the CD quality consumers have come to expect from their electronic devices and home entertainment systems.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…
