Meridian and Imagination collaborate on multi-channel wireless audio systems
Imagination Technologies and Meridian Audio have entered into an agreement to collaborate on the next generation of multi-channel high resolution wireless audio streaming systems.
Meridian Audio is to use Imagination’s family of Caskeid technologies to apply its audio expertise to the wireless audio streaming environment. The agreement will draw upon Imagination’s processor, connectivity and audio technologies to complement Meridian’s technologies for lossless stereo and surround sound.
Bob Stuart, Meridian Audio Chairman and co-founder, commented: “At Meridian, we’ve been designing and creating state-of-the-art audio and video home entertainment systems for over 35 years. Our passion is in achieving the best possible audio and video reproduction, while retaining the purity of the original source material. The quest to achieve this in the wireless sphere is our next aim, which is why we are working with Imagination and its Caskeid family of technologies, which is the only wireless multiroom synchronisation technology out there that truly delivers a platform for high quality audio.”
Imagination CEO Hossein Yassaie said: “Partnerships like this will elevate the listening experience and bring audio quality back to the centre stage, enabling music fans to hear content as the artist originally intended. We are delighted to be working with a company with such a respected audio heritage as Meridian Audio to drive this agenda.”
