New York (January 9, 2007)–QSC Audio Products Inc. has extended a licensing agreement with Cirrus Logic that will allow the manufacturer of power amplifiers, loudspeakers, signal processing, and digital signal transport systems to begin producing products employing Cirrus Logic’s gigabit Ethernet-based CobraNet technology, a professional and commercial audio industry standard for delivering uncompressed digital audio via Ethernet networks.
“CobraNet technology has long been our protocol of choice for the transmission of digital audio,” said John Andrews, chief operating officer, QSC. “CobraNet serves a vital role within our QSControl.net platform to help fulfill digital audio transport needs in applications ranging from arenas and theaters to broadcast facilities. Now, with gigabit Ethernet-based CobraNet available as a resource, we’re well-poised to create a new generation of products offering even more in terms of performance and capabilities.”
“QSC’s continued commitment to CobraNet technology underscores CobraNet’s leadership in this new era of products where higher channel count, lower latency and networked digital audio demand gigabit Ethernet networks as the standard platform,” said Steve Bassett, Cirrus Logic’s CobraNet marketing manager. “CobraNet technology is the leading industry standard today for networked audio, and we are committed to extending our leadership with solutions that include cost-effective integrated circuits, reference designs, tools and training.”
QSC joins Gibson Guitar Corporation and Biamp Systems as recent licensees of CobraNet gigabit technology.
