LifeVibes AmbiVolume: ambient-aware so users never miss a call!

AmbiVolume is an ambient aware product designed to ensure mobile phone users never miss calls because they can't hear their phone - or suffer the embarrassment of a ringtone that's too loud for the environment they are in. The software continuously monitors the ambient noise and adjusts ringer volume accordingly.

The software is the result of years of fundamental research and acoustic expertise, yet is simple to implement and runs on all types of phone from entry-level to smartphones. It is entirely automatic, so users don't have to adjust profiles or settings. In user tests the functionality was rated as important or essential.

LifeVibes CinemaSound: cinema surround sound on mobile

CinemaSound brings the exciting ambience of a home cinema to mobile phones. The software enables handset makers to offer high-quality surround sound for movies, video clips or live performances. `CinemaSound can produce full surround sound from any stereo, matrix-encoded or 5.1 channel input. It automatically levels out volume changes between tracks, and also offers powerful bass performance and crystal-clear high frequencies.

Optimized to run on even highly-constrained mobile platforms, CinemaSound delivers a rich ambient listening experience on handsets and headphones.
