Milford, MA - THAT Corporation has recently expanded its dbx-tv® line of digital TV audio decoding software to cover legacy TV audio standards worldwide, including BTSC, NICAM, A2 and EIA-J.

THAT is well known for holding key patents covering portions of the US BTSC standard for TV audio, which it has licensed to nearly every manufacturer of broadcast equipment or TV receivers around the world. Les Tyler, THAT's president, stated, "For many years, THAT has offered licenses to IC makers for digital implementations of BTSC encoder and decoder ICs. Chips based on our Verilog® BTSC code are ideal for digital products like PVRs, DVD-Rs, and high-definition TV sets."

Tyler went on to say, “We've developed decoder Verilog code that extends our previous intellectual property offerings well beyond BTSC, now covering all worldwide legacy TV standards, including A2, NICAM, and EIA-J. This code makes it easy for IC, and TV receiver makers to include digital reception of legacy TV audio along with the newer digital forms of recording and broadcast."

Licenses to this new code are available now. The technology will be marketed under the dbx-TV brand name.
