Kleer is a fabless semiconductor company that has developed the first wireless audio technology to combine high quality audio and robust ISM band coexistence with low power consumption to address portable, home and automotive audio markets. Unlike Bluetooth, Kleer's patented subsampling radio architecture was designed from the ground up to communicate lossless CD-quality digital stereo audio over a robust 2.4GHz radio link, while achieving 10 times the battery life of a comparable Bluetooth solution. Kleer's Audio LP technology is ideally suited for OEMs of portable audio players, iPod and other player accessories, home audio/theater systems, earphones, headphones, and speakers. Kleer distributes its products via direct sales in North America, and a distribution channel in Korea and Japan. The Company is headquartered in Cupertino, California with product development facilities in Ottawa, Ontario.

Whitepaper: Kleer Advantages Over Bluetooth

by KleerApr 09, 2008

This whitepaper compares Kleer technology to Bluetooth technology for the application of wireless streaming audio. Bluetooth is a standard for relatively short-range general-purpose data communications. Bluetooth has found initial market success in wireless voice headsets for mobile phones and is now trying to address stereo audio for mobile phones and portable audio players. Bluetooth solutions suffer from poor audio quality due to the use of lossy audio compression, poor ISM (2.4GHz) band coexistence performance in high interference environments, and high power consumption when carrying streaming audio.

Kleer's technology is optimized for high quality wireless audio transmission between portable audio devices. Kleer's patented sub-sampling radio architecture combines lossless audio transmission, low-power consumption, low latency, and best-in-class ISM band co-existence to provide far superior audio quality with up to 10 times the battery life of a comparable Bluetooth solution.
