Frontline Test Equipment, Inc. is pleased to announce their breakthrough Bluetooth audio quality testing tool for developing and troubleshooting Bluetooth audio devices and applications. The Audio Expert System software module combines the power of ComProbe® software with in-depth audio tools all synchronized with the Bluetooth protocol.
Audio Expert System is a software module that works with Frontline’s intuitive ComProbe software platform. It brings the Bluetooth developer, both with and without audio expertise, the ability to troubleshoot Bluetooth protocol-related audio issues. The Audio Expert System synchronizes live codec and audio events back to the Bluetooth protocol and audio wave forms enabling, for the first time, Bluetooth engineers to quickly and easily troubleshoot Bluetooth protocol-related audio quality issues. Engineers can view wave forms, control live playback of audio file, and with a single click jump back to the specific Bluetooth packets and frames related to audio within ComProbe software.
“There has been a void in test tools capable of helping with Bluetooth protocol-related audio quality”, says David Bean, President of Frontline. “Great tools are available for testing true audio, but nothing existed to troubleshoot Bluetooth protocol-related audio quality issues. But, the gap is now filled! With the Audio Expert System module, Bluetooth engineers can see everything they need to get their jobs done fast!”
Audio engineers have long been able develop and troubleshoot audio devices using extensive audio quality test equipment. For Bluetooth engineers this has not been the case. How Bluetooth is implemented can greatly affect the quality of audio coming from their devices. The challenge is determining what in the Bluetooth protocol or audio codecs might be affecting audio quality adversely. Now with the Audio Expert System module, Bluetooth engineers can quickly see and resolve their Bluetooth audio quality challenges. The Audio Expert System module is a necessity for efficiently developing and troubleshooting Bluetooth audio devices.
