NXP Software's new Control Panel Application Brings Audio Effects to
Android Users, Device Makers and Application Developers
EINDHOVEN, The Netherlands, Feb. 28 /CNW/ - NXP Software has launched
its LifeVibes MusicFX control panel for the Android platform. This new
app opens up exciting possibilities for consumers, device makers and
application developers, allowing all of them to benefit instantly from
the audio effects incorporated in the latest Android release (version
2.3.3, known as Gingerbread).
The latest version of the Android platform (Gingerbread) features a new
audio effects framework with a number of built-in enhancements such as
bass boost, equalization and stereo widening for headphones. These were
developed jointly by NXP Software and Google(TM) through the Open
Handset Alliance. The LifeVibes MusicFX control panel is a natural
extension of the standard Android music player, expanding its
capabilities by providing instant access to the built-in effects. For
example, end-users can use it to access and adjust these audio
enhancements to their personal preferences.
Benefits for device makers and application developers
For device makers, the MusicFX control panel provides a standardized way
to expose and control their LifeVibes SoundExperience enriched audio
effects. LifeVibes SoundExperience is the plug-and-play upgrade of the
standard Android audio effects. Designed for device makers, it provides
optimal performance, high quality and a richer set of enhancements.
Device makers can also adapt the LifeVibes MusicFX control panel to
create their own branded panel.
For application developers, the MusicFX control panel offers an easy way
to access the audio effects in Android version 2.3 without having to
create their own control panel. They can use the Android standardized
"intents" mechanism to enable and control audio effects from any media
application. The panel already supports the richer set of effects
offered by the device makers.
