AES, New York. - October 4th, 2007 - CEntrance, a leader in professional audio technology, announced today that it has joined Texas Instruments Incorporated's (TI) digital signal processor (DSP) Third Party Network. CEntrance's rapid product development expertise combined with TI's extensive selection of chips for audio and entertainment products creates a global support solution for consumer electronics OEMs and makes CEntrance hardware, firmware and driver expertise immediately available to TI's customers.

For years a technology supplier to famous audio and consumer electronics brands, CEntrance is ideally positioned to be a part of TI's DSP Third Party Network. The third party network gives CEntrance a more active role in supporting TI's clients with custom hardware, software and drivers, including solutions for computer audio and portable audio.

Recently, CEntrance licensed its professional quality, driverless 24-bit / 96-kHz USB solution based on TI's TAS1020 chip to such audiophile brands as Benchmark Media, and Empirical Audio.

CEntrance is an expert in analog technology and digital connectivity solutions, including USB, FireWire, PCI-E and Ethernet interfaces. CEntrance drivers feature the highest stability and industry's lowest latency. They are routinely used in live sound production, which is a mission-critical application previously impossible on PCs for stability reasons.
