Dbx-tv said Thursday its new in-home audio calibration tuning system called “Total Cal” for TVs, soundbars and home speakers, has received a CES 2023 Innovations Award.

The dbx-TV Total Cal technology was developed to “improve the sound of televisions, soundbars, and portable/home speakers,” the company said.

The Innovations Award was announced Wednesday night at a CES Unveiled event in New York.

The technology will be coming to as yet unnamed TVs, soundbars, and home speakers enabling fine-tuning the audio performance of equipment for individual listening environments.

The Total Cal platform allows control via a user-friendly app, detects and corrects for acoustic issues in the home, ensuring all material sounds exactly the way it was intended.

“The Total Cal system represents a breakthrough in consumer audio, bringing in-home tuning technology to budget-friendly electronics. Total Cal makes it easy for every consumer to experience high quality, accurate, and customized sound without the need for any audio expertise or complex A/V equipment“ stated Les Tyler, the inventor of automatic equalization technology and President of dbx-tv.

Based on dbx-tv’s professional audio measurement and calibration algorithms, Total Cal measures the device’s performance in the room at a variety of listening positions then re-tunes the audio parameters to provide customized, accurate sound quality.

“dbx-tv’s sole focus is improving the sound of consumer electronics through clever audio processing–without increasing hardware costs for manufacturers or consumers. By harnessing the power of cloud computing and the mobile devices consumers already own, Total Cal works with the industry standard SoCs and DSPs manufacturers already design around, enabling them to deliver high-end audio processing in cost-conscious products” added Timothy Brault, dbx-TV director of sales and marketing.

dbx-tv offers Total Cal to TV & speaker OEM/ODM manufacturers as a companion application to the company’s Total Sonics audio post-processing. Products using the system are expected to reach consumers early in 2023, the company said.

Total Cal, along with dbx-tv’s other audio processing technologies, will be demonstrated at CES 2023 in suite 306 of the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino.
