Santa Ana, CA (August 4, 2008)–SRS Labs, Inc. celebrates its fifteenth anniversary this year. The company’s patented technologies are designed to maximize the audio performance of products such as televisions, mobile phones, PCs, portable media devices and automotive entertainment.
SRS Labs was formed in 1993 with the purchase of the SRS 3D (Sound Retrieval System) audio technology from Hughes Aircraft. The company’s first licensing partners were Sony and RCA, both implementing SRS 3D in TVs. Since then, the company’s list of licensees number in the hundreds, including leading consumer electronics manufacturers such as Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, VIZIO and many other world-renowned brands. To date, SRS audio technologies have shipped in over 1 billion products and in recent years, SRS Labs has managed to systematically penetrate the home theater category with phenomenal success in televisions with over 33 percent worldwide market share in flat panel HDTVs. In addition, according to DisplaySearch and SRS royalty reports, 9 of the top 10 flat panel TV brands worldwide (30 in. and larger) feature one or more SRS audio technologies.
Over the years, the company’s engineering team has worked hand-in-hand with its partners to optimize a product’s performance and limitations caused by inherent design constraints such as small or tight speaker enclosures in flat panel TVs and tiny drivers in mobile phones. To further streamline the process of deploying its audio solutions, SRS Labs has developed partnerships with over 70 platform providers, offering extensive platform coverage. That penetration into the integrated chipsets allows manufacturers to use their preferred DSP chip when developing products incorporating SRS technologies.
To commemorate the company’s 15 years, SRS Labs is giving away a prize a day for 15 days. The sweepstakes begin at noon on August 1 and run through August 15, 2008. To enter for a chance to win a product featuring SRS technologies, visit www.srslabs.com/anniversary
