The debate over the best approach to surround for radio continues to heat up.
Part of the discussion centers on whether matrixed systems, which are not made up of five discrete channels, stack up against non-matrixed systems.
Neural Audio disputes an assertion made by Broadcast Electronics, Telos/Omnia and Fraunhofer. As reported here last week, those companies announced plans for the NAB show, including what they claimed would be the first live demo of a non-matrixed surround sound system for FM HD Radio.
Neural says it has demonstrated a non-matrixed, watermarked surround sound system since NAB2003, with additional demonstrations at AES and the NAB Radio Show. Neural also took part in live broadcasts of 5.1 surround sound on KUVO(FM), Denver and NPR on New Year's Eve.
All of the companies mentioned are taking part in surround sound demos in the 5.1 pavilion at the upcoming NAB convention.
