Some functions are enabled by high-performance computing of Audio SoC.

The Audio SoC technology is also promising in the area of wireless connectivity, as it offers the following key benefits for wireless devices: Ultra-low latency for audio. This makes the audio and video experience seamless for users. This accelerates the pace of new product development of go-to-market.

The market is expanding rapidly, making wireless speakers more appealing to consumers due to their convenience and sound quality. Home systems, 5G network rollouts, and the development of smart homes are changing consumer expectations, leading to innovation in the wireless speaker market. (GMI Research)

Jazz Hipster and MediaTek's Advanced Audio Collaboration

A crucial usage scenario driving consumer demand for wireless speakers is TV and home speaker setups. Jazz Hipster’s integration of MediaTek’s advanced Audio SoC technology into The Premium Speaker exemplifies the company’s commitment to meeting this market demand.

Including:

  • Ultra-Low Latency: Achieving ultra-low latency of up to 40 milliseconds necessitates a blend of adaptive streaming techniques and intelligent buffer management. The system dynamically adjusts the size of the audio buffer based on the current network conditions, which is a crucial aspect of reducing transmission delays. This involves real-time analysis of network bandwidth and latency, allowing the system to predict and preemptively adjust for any fluctuations, ensuring consistent audio playback without delays.
  • Precise Time Sync: Precise synchronization up to 150 microseconds across devices is achieved through the Network Time Protocol (NTP) and clock recovery mechanisms in the Audio SoC. Ensuring that all speakers are synchronized to the microsecond level is critical for maintaining phase coherence and spatial audio integrity across a multi-room setup.
  • Packet Loss Concealment (PLC): To combat potential quality degradation from lost data packets, the system employs advanced signal processing techniques for PLC. The system can generate a plausible substitute that seamlessly blends into the original content by analyzing the spectral properties and temporal characteristics of the audio signal before and after the loss. This technique not only maintains audio quality but also ensures that the listener’s experience remains uninterrupted, even in conditions of unreliable wireless transmission.

This synergy between Jazz Hipster’s innovative speaker designs and MediaTek’s cutting-edge technology demonstrates the potential of modern audio devices to achieve high fidelity, flexibility, and seamless integration within smart home ecosystems.
