Company develops system for surround sound with bluetooth speakers




A French start-up called Tempow has introduced a system that allows multiple bluetooth speakers to be connected to a television for a surround sound installation. The system must work with all bluetooth speakers.

With the system, called Tempow Audio Profile TV, up to six speakers can be connected wirelessly for a 5.1 setup, writes Engadget . Tempow makes TAP TV suitable for all manufacturers who want to integrate the system into their televisions, set-top boxes or media players, according to SlashGear .

Vincent Nallatamby, the director of Tempow, told Engadget that the company, in order to make it possible to send a signal to six speakers at the same time, did not have to compress the sound that normally happens. The company would also have kept the latency at a minimum.

In addition to surround sound, Tempow sees other applications for the technology. For example, sound could be sent in one language over the ordinary speakers, while a connected headphone receives a translation. The sound levels per speaker can also be individually controlled.

Currently there are no devices available that are equipped with the technology. The company has already built a similar system in the Motorola Moto X4 smartphone. This unit can connect to multiple Bluetooth speakers at the same time and send them to the same signal. Later this year the technology will be available on two more telephones and Tempow is already talking to several television manufacturers to release TAP TV on their equipment.
