Introducing Wireless Organic Digital Audio: A Multichannel Streaming Audio Network Based on IEEE 802.11 Standards
Until recently the multichannel audio market has been dominated by systems with synthetic or blended audio where new channels are created from the two original stereo channels or mixed from a few independent signals. The majority of these systems only have the CD, or worse yer, MP3 sound quality. This may be acceptable for computer games and adventure movies but is certainly not good enough for serious music work. To opposite this unsatisfactory trend we have introduced our organic sound format with eight fully independent original channels each with 24-bit samples at the sampling rate of 192 kHz. Further we introduce the wireless organic digital audio distribution network to transmit this group of signals to a dynamic group of loudspeakers with intelligent, high quality receivers. Our system features isochronous transfer with very low system delay, excellent channel-to-channel synchronization, clocks drift compensation, and complete system configuration flexibility.
