SANTA ANA, Calif. , March 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — SRS Labs (Nasdaq: SRSL), the industry leader in surround sound, audio, and voice technologies, announced today that it has ported and is subsequently conducting joint demonstrations of SRS TruMedia™ on the Qualcomm Mobile Station Modem™ (MSM™) MSM7630™ chipset reference platform, in order to showcase one of the most powerful surround sound experiences on a mobile device.


“Qualcomm has been a long time leader in the mobile space, and it's exciting to work closely with them and highlight the potential enhanced capabilities of Smartphone devices, powered by the MSM7630 chipset,” said Allen H. Gharapetian , Vice President of Marketing for SRS Labs. “Mobile phones are no longer just phones, they have become the hub of the mobile digital lifestyle, and a huge part of that lifestyle is the ability to enjoy movies, TV shows, or music whenever or wherever you choose. SRS TruMedia empowers devices to produce natural, high fidelity music playback, as well as deliver immersive, 5.1 surround sound for movies with cinema-style refinement over headphones.”

With TruMedia, music and videos sound remarkably more natural and detailed, with enhanced depth, deeper bass and more clarity. Now, speakers of all sizes and capabilities can offer a compelling 3D sound field and increased bass response. And, while listening over headphones, users will be enveloped in up to a 5.1 surround sound experience, courtesy of SRS' advanced technologies incorporated into TruMedia specifically designed for headphone applications.

“The ability to watch and experience multimedia content on a handheld device is more popular than ever,” said Jason Bremner , Vice President of Product Management at Qualcomm. “The SRS audio solutions that are being demoed on our MSM7630 platform allow us to showcase just what type high quality, on-the-go audio experiences are possible.”

Demonstrations of the MSM7630 Enhanced Multimedia platform featuring SRS TruMedia will be available at CTIA Wireless in Las Vegas , March 23 – 25, 2010, in SRS' meeting room located in room N104 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
