HAWTHORNE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Symmetry Electronics Corporation today announced a new distribution agreement with audio solutions expert Cmedia. Cmedia is an industry leader in the development of PC-audio, mixed-signal, digital audio circuit design, audio processing and software integration to support applications such as: 4/5.1/7.1-channel PCI entertainment/gaming sound cards, Hi-Fi audiophile, HP/speaker amplifier cards, HDMI AV/HTPC sound cards, pro-audio, interface/recording cards, karaoke sound cards, high-value PC MB USB audio, netbook USB audio, embedded systems (surveillance systems, jukebox, gaming machine, etc.) and IPC and server's audio. Cmedia audio solutions allow customers to easily transition from existing designs to higher audio quality at competitive prices with three main products; CM65XX, CM66XXA and CM7000N. Each solution is USB 2.0 high speed compatible but more importantly, drivers for a wide range of devices are standard with all solutions and not offered by competitors.

Cmedia's grasp on developing innovative technology is well demonstrated by the audio/visual technology it was first to bring to market. Features including: single-chip USB audio controller with integrated power amplifier for driving speakers directly and software implementation of Dolby/DTS sound effect, Dolby's real time 5.1 channel encoder - Dolby Digital Live, Dolby Headphone and Dolby Virtual Speaker, Dolby Pro Logic IIx technology for 7.1 channels surround, DTS connect for 7.1 channel surround and DTS encoder and Dolby and DTS sound effect were all introduced by Cmedia which also provides several Xear™ sound technologies in audio, voice and karaoke applications.

Ideal for USB headsets, USB microphones, USB sound/docking stations, the CM65XX audio codec is USB 2.0 full speed compatible and easily customizable for a wide range of embedded MCUs. CM65XX is a whole solution for iDevice data sync and music playback and Android Docking, including the Lib and driver for Android system.

For higher-end requirements, the Cmedia CM66XXA is fully compatible with USB 2.0 high speed, USB Audio Class 2.0 and comes with add on value driver with sound effect and also the ASIO driver for bit perfect and low latency. CM66XXA supports adaptive and asynchronous mode to minimize clock jitter and embedded MCU enables flexible applications and customizations for all major platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, supporting the development of professional quality musical instruments and multi channel headphones/handsets.

CM7000N is a high performance voice processor with dual omni-microphone and up to 40Db noise cancelling with the world's top performing Xear VoClear environmental noise cancellation. CM7000N has a powerful 32-Bit DSP core with selectable operation clock speeds, 2 separated Mic Voltage bias pins, low cross talk and supports Mic Auto-Calibration to reduce cost of production testing. Voice recorders, camcorders, speakerphones and voice command headsets all derive great benefits from the CM7000N.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
