Audio (AVR) Products

MDS has been involved in surround sound/home theater systems since the advent of the very first DVD players. Our DAE-1 module started shipping in 1997 and systems built around is are still in use today.

MDS offers a range of Dolby and DTS surround sound decoder modules that allow equipment designers to focus on their unique system aspects and avoid the high development cost and time associated with developing a fully custom solution. MDS' Digital Audio Engine (DAE) modules can be combined with MDS' HDMI switcher/repeater (HSR) modules to perform the core common functions in any AV receiver or surround processor platform.

In addition to standard and high bit rate (HBR) audio used by Blu-Ray players, an extensive list of post processing algorithms are available to cover bass management, room effects, equalization, and room correction.

As the Texas Instruments DSPs used in the hardware are fully programmable, MDS' DSP experts can create new functions to allow product differentiation.

Modules capable of HBR audio decoding and limited post processing start at $99 in small OEM quantities, dual DSP boards with more extensive capability and built in analog output are comparably priced to offer system developers a faster time to market using a proven solution.

MDS also offers design and consulting services for supporting in-house design efforts at both the hardware and software level. MDS audio group can also assist with full system design as well as box level integration and test.
