Consumer Equipment Manufacturers

Oxford Digital offers a range of services and products that are of value in improving audio quality in consumer equipment such as mobile telephone handsets, docking stations and headphones. These services and products include:

  • Audio effects implemented for a specific platform
  • Optimisation of the performance of particular models

Manufacturers of consumer equipment face a number of audio challenges that Oxford Digital can help overcome. These challenges include:

  • Improving sound quality
  • Aiding listening in noisy environments
  • Providing exciting ('eye-popping') audio effects
  • Making loudspeaker and earphone correction
  • Improving bass response
  • Enhancing dialogue intelligibility

Current Oxford Digital effects that enhance the audio operation of Personal Devices include:

  • EQ-master: used for preset effects and speaker/earphone correction
  • Loud-master: used to make the audio seem louder without significant effect on battery life and also useful as an MP3/ATRAC/lossy-compressed audio restoration tool
  • Peak-master: used to enhance listening and intelligibility in noisy environments. This gives a dramatic improvement that removes the need for frequent adjustment of local volume controls
  • Edge-master: used to add 'punch' to percussive effects or to remove transients to avoid overload and save battery drain or for background listening
  • Bass-master: used to improve the bass response of speakers and earphones beyond the range that they can naturally reproduce
  • Wide-master: used to enhance listening and give the impression of a bigger space

    In the words of one of Oxford Digital's clients, combinations of the above effects truly do yield 'eye-popping' results.
