NEWCASTLE, DE (Feburary-19, 2001). - AudioScience Inc., a specialist in digital audio peripherals for the broadcast and entertainment markets, has announced an agreement with American Music Environments (AME) Inc., in which AudioScience will develop and manufacture a custom sound card for AME's revolutionary AME-2020 audio delivery system.

The ASI4401 PCI soundcard will be based on AudioScience's 4000 series DSP audio platform, which has been used successfully in its broadcast products over the last four years. The card will offer a software selectable choice of either 6 mono streams of 16bit PCM mixed to two mono outputs or 4 streams of stereo PCM mixed to one stereo output.

The system permits clients in retail, food service and hospitality to strongly enhance branding and marketing strategies with sound. AME gives each location or region in a chain full custom control over the in-store and on-hold audio environment. Remote control of every location is possible from anywhere with Internet access.
