Telos Systems/Omnia Audio and Fraunhofer Institute (FhG), the developers of MP3 and other MPEG audio codecs, announced the development of a spatial audio coding system that enables transmission of 5.1 channel surround audio over HD Radio. The companies will demonstrate the system privately to major broadcast groups at the NAB Convention in Las Vegas this week.

"Only a couple of years ago, it seemed we didn't have enough bandwidth for full-fidelity stereo on IBOC," says Telos president Steve Church. "With this breakthrough, it's possible to have very impressive surround on HD Radio. We invite skeptics to listen for themselves at NAB."

The new system works with existing HD Radio codec and transmission equipment and is fully compatible with stereo broadcasts.
