We set out to build the industry’s best installation and commercial sound products from a foundation of technologies that span two decades of development. At BEHRINGER we are proud to maintain one the our industry’s largest and most capable research and development teams with members situated across the globe and expertise that spans all modern design disciplines. This near 200-strong engineering powerhouse continues to develop advanced technologies for rapid deployment into new product designs.
The four pillars of BEHRINGER’s technology infrastructure are Intellectual Property (IP), Hardware Design, Software Design and Quality Assurance. The teams responsible for each of these pillars have access to a vast array of existing BEHRINGER technology modules as well as the latest in research and development tools. Working in symphony, this synergy enables rapid deployment of resources to meet any product definition with proven solutions, while encouraging promising research into new discoveries.
BEHRINGER maintains a significant body of proprietary technology that is either patented or patent-pending. This unique IP has real-world implications beyond mere time to market advantages. Our engineers are always looking for methods and processes that improve design cycle efficiencies, reduce energy consumption, increase reliability and maximize value. By leveraging our IP portfolio we are able to deliver better performance and superior value in electronics and acoustical products as well.
Sophisticated hardware design is a critical requirement in many product definitions. BEHRINGER’s Research and Development (R&D) teams bring considerable expertise and unparalleled scope to the task with an extensive portfolio of designs and technology building blocks. Core hardware design competencies at BEHRINGER include high-efficiency switch-mode power supplies with power factor correction to achieve unmatched efficiency and stability. Other competencies include Class D power amplifier design, digital signal processing hardware and firmware and extensive analog and mixed-signal experience.
BEHRINGER maintains one of the largest software development teams in the industry with specific expertise in algorithm development, user interface, PC applications, digital audio mixing and routing and digital audio networking. Teams employ the latest in software development tools to deliver applications for both native and embedded processing platforms serving a wide range of practical product applications. At the cutting edge of digital audio transport technology out teams have proven effectiveness at solving latency, quality of service and clock recovery issues that plague lesser equipped developers.
Closing the loop from design to production, BEHRINGER employs sophisticated quality assurance and testing technologies to ensure that every design is stable so each product that leaves our factory never needs to make a return trip. Sophisticated in-circuit testing, advanced lifecycle stress testing, a fully interactive Lean Six Sigma manufacturing regimen and some of the most talented QA people in the business see to it that every great product idea is honored with a solid outcome. No-one takes quality more seriously or manages it more holistically than we do at BEHRINGER. The results speak for themselves.
