8/4/2005 - Sonarics Labs, the industry leader for complete DAB solutions on a single, general-purpose low cost DSP, announces a new ClearSignal version, offering the industry an even richer DAB integrated software. The new main features are the EPG (Electronic Programming Guide) and real-time DAB recording to removable storage or to internal memory for later playback. These features are integrated with the recent capabilities of displaying a photo album and DAB MOT slide shows on a colour LCD, while complementing and completing them.
The EPG capability was released following the recent approval of DAB EPG standard by ETSI, under the auspices of WorldDAB. Using the advanced ClearSignal software, the listeners will be able to scroll through forthcoming programmes for each station, highlight programme information on their radio display and schedule its automatic recording for listening at a later time.
"The fast growth of the digital entertainment market puts a lot of pressure on the manufacturers of DAB radios. With the addition of EPG and real-time recording we are building upon the success of the existing ClearSignal features for providing our customers an edge over their competition" said Tanya Morales, chairman of Sonarics Labs.
While DAB EPG in the world is still mostly on trial, its reception by ClearSignal is a solid bullet-proof implementation, available today, together with the real-time recording on flash cards. Products based on the new ClearSignal version will be launched during the second half of 2005 by Sonarics customers.
