The company's audio room correction process will be available as an app.
Dirac Research has announced its new Mobile Dirac Live app. The platform will serve as an end-user version of its integrator-based Dirac Live room correction technology.
"Mobile Dirac Live is our response to the growing demand from our partners who manufacture both high-end, integrator-installed AVR products and more entry-level products purchased and installed directly by end-users," said Niklas Thorin, Dirac's General Manager of High Performance Audio. "Mobile Dirac Live now provides our manufacturer partners with the ability to offer all of their customers, regardless of their system’s sophistication or complexity, a way to optimize their home theater set-up by correcting for acoustical abnormalities and colorations."
Dirac Live is a patented room correction technology that uses multiple measurement and mixed phase correction to fix the frequency response and impulse response of a room's speaker setup, resulting in a more natural and realistic sound. The tech is typically implemented as an installer version designed for high-end custom home theater systems, but the new mobile app version will allow customers with entry-level AV products to use the room correction tech.
"Dirac Live room correction technology can now be enjoyed by a significantly broader segment of the home theater market," continued Thorin. "With Mobile Dirac Live, manufacturers of lite home theater AVR products can offer their customers a sleek, easy-to-use mobile app that allows them to optimize audio performance and ensure that they’re getting the most out of their system."
Mobile Dirac Live is set to launch for Android and iOS devices in the fall and will he demoed at the upcoming CEDIA tech show in San Diego. The platform will be compatible with several AVR units that are equipped with the embedded Dirac Live audio filters and algorithms.
