Impulsesoft announced the use of its BluePC software to demonstrate the use of full-duplex audio in a PC application. Intelís Desktop Platform Architecture group demonstrated the Marble Falls Concept PC which features enterprise applications using Bluetooth enabled wireless input devices such as mouse, keyboard and audio headset. The enterprise class video-conference application uses Impulsesoftís BluePC software and audio driver to establish the wireless communication channel between the headset and the computer.
"We are excited about demonstrating the new applications that are possible using Bluetooth to deliver full-duplex audio on the PC. Impulsesoft delivered the first Bluetooth driver to incorporate the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile. This driver made it possible for us to demonstrate business applications with an easy to use, wireless solution that delivers a high quality audio experience." commented Russ Campbell, Technical Marketing Engineer, Intel Corporation.
Impulsesoft's BluePC, a fast Bluetooth protocol stack solution for the PC environment designed based on Microsoft's WDM (Windows Driver Model) architecture, provides OEMs with the ability to quickly customize the software for use with their specific implementation. BluePC supports full duplex toll quality voice over Bluetooth SCO channels on UART and USB transports. Impulsesoftís Bluetooth solutions for audio were first demonstrated during the FIFA World Cup in 2002.
"Impulsesoft has pioneered the deployment of Bluetooth audio solutions in the past year", said K. Srikrishna, Chief Executive Officer, Impulsesoft. "The demonstration of our audio solution on Intelís newest platform further validates our commitment to Bluetooth audio. With the release of BluePC incorporating Bluetooth SIGís Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) profile to deliver unmatched stereo quality audio we continue to demonstrate our leadership in wireless audio".
