CSR plc has announced that Mad Catz Interactive has signed a multi-year licensing agreement to use the CSR's aptX Low Latency audio codec, expected to feature in a new family of 'GameSmart' headsets that Mad Catz plans to introduce in the coming months.
"This breakthrough CSR aptX technology is enabling us to create a new category of high-performance GameSmart wireless headsets that we know will deliver audiophile sound for games and audio alike," said Darren Richardson, Mad Catz CEO and President.
"The aptX technology allows us to deliver realistic interactive action-synchronised sound when gaming by eliminating the audio sync issue, while providing high-quality stereo audio over Bluetooth."
"We welcome Mad Catz into the aptX ecosystem, and congratulate them for their vision and innovation in being first to recognize and fulfill the need for this new breed of wireless headsets," said Jonny McClintock, Director of aptX Sales and Marketing at CSR.
"With more and more people using their smartphones and tablets to play games, in addition to other more traditional audiovisual entertainment, many of them will be turning to high-performance wireless headsets, like those Mad Catz will be introducing, that can work equally well for high-fidelity stereo audio and gaming applications."
