THAT Corp Bolsters TV-Standard Development Team

Saturday, February 19, 2005

Milford, MA – THAT Corporation recently fortified its expertise in digital signal processing with the appointment of Matt Barnhill as a Senior Digital Development Engineer. Matt will develop new and support existing technology licensed by THAT to the TV industry worldwide. Lane Czekala, THAT's US Licensing Manager, commented "Over the past year, through our relationship with ESP (Matt's former company), Matt has made significant contributions to our BTSC and dbx-tv intellectual property offerings. Now that he's on board full time, Matt will develop additional TV decoding standards to extend and broaden our licensing program." THAT Corporation now offers BTSC stereo TV encoding and decoding technology to consumer and professional makers of TV receivers, set-top boxes, satellite receivers, video games, broadcast products, and ICs used by all these.

Matt comes to THAT after several years at Electronic Systems Products developing a variety of DSP and Verilog applications. His most recent work has been the Verilog BTSC decoder code (incorporating dbx-tv) that THAT has licensed to several IC companies in the past months. THAT Corporation President, Les Tyler added, "Matt is very inventive. We have several patents pending as a result of his work in BTSC."

THAT Corporation is the leading source of BTSC Verilog solutions, offering one-stop shopping to manufacturers wishing to equip their products with stereo TV sound capability. Manufacturers now have a single source for all the patents, know-how, and software required to implement BTSC encoder and decoder technology. THAT is currently extending its licensing program to the A2, NICAM, and EIA-J broadcast standards.
