HARMAN International and Dirac Research AB have announced a strategic partnership to extend Dirac’s digital audio solutions and tuning technology to HARMAN’s automotive audio and infotainment system applications. Through this partnership, HARMAN will also become a worldwide distributor of Dirac’s sound technologies to automotive sound system suppliers and car manufacturers.
This collaboration builds on HARMAN’s existing partnership with Dirac that provides the Bowers & Wilkins premium in-car surround system for the Volvo XC90 with Dirac’s advanced sound optimisation technology Dirac Unison. HARMAN will implement Dirac’s advanced digital audio technologies to enhance the in-car entertainment experience.
HARMAN automotive partners will now have the opportunity to license Dirac’s advanced technologies for sound optimisation directly within eligible models, including room correction, sound field synthesis, active room treatment and more. Additionally, HARMAN will work closely with Dirac R&D engineers to ensure seamless integration of Dirac’s existing and new technologies into automotive audio and infotainment system applications.
