dbx-tv’s Total Cal gives TV, soundbar, and home speaker end-customers the ability to fine-tune the audio performance of their equipment for their individual listening environment. Controlled via a user-friendly app, Total Cal detects and corrects for acoustic issues in the home, ensuring all material sounds exactly the way it was intended.

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,” says Timothy Brault, director of sales and marketing for dbx-tv.

dbx-tv offers Total Cal to TV and speaker OEM/ODM manufacturers as a companion application to the company’s Total Sonics audio post-processing. Products utilizing Total Cal are expected to reach consumers early in 2023. Total Cal, along with dbx-tv’s other audio processing technologies, will be on display and available for demonstration at CES 2023 in suite 306 of the Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino.
