QNX Active Sound Design and HEAD acoustics
Together delivering a better vehicle sound design experience.
HEAD acoustics and BlackBerry QNX join forces to create the next generation vehicle sound design and prototyping solution
BlackBerry® QNX® is partnering with HEAD acoustics to provide an interactive vehicle sound design and auditioning workflow with unrivalled speed, quality and greatly simplified deployment to production.
QNX Active Sound Design (ASD) enables you to design sounds interactively and audition your designs in the context of HEAD acoustics’ simulated vehicle powertrain and noise environment – entirely on the desktop. It comprises the industry-leading sound design tool, LiveAMP, combined with a platform-agnostic embedded runtime library that implements all the sound synthesis, engine order reduction and other sound design features in the embedded target system. The QNX ASD embedded runtime is portable to a wide range of automotive embedded systems, running leading operating systems including the QNX Neutrino® Real-time Operating System (RTOS), Linux and Android. It is also portable to dedicated audio Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) – either discrete or embedded within automotive systems-on-a-chip (SoCs).
Deploying to production is a simple one-step process, and you can continue tuning and making final adjustments using LiveAMP connected to the embedded system.
