The new TV speaker uses hearing aid technology for better dialogue reproduction.
ZVOX has detailed its latest audio product. The upcoming AccuVoice TV Speaker is designed to enhance dialogue reproduction for users with minor hearing impairment.
"I went to my first rock concert in 1966. The Who. Fargo Civic Auditorium. $1.25 admission. My hearing was better when I walked in then when I walked out. I'm not alone. Millions of baby boomers with 'rock ears' are now listening to the worst sound systems in TV history. But baby, AccuVoice can fix that!" Tom Hannaher, CEO and long time Who fanatic.
The AccuVoice TV speaker measure just 17-inches wide and features an enclosed aluminum cabinet with three high performance full range drivers. Using a computer processor with an advanced compression/equalization algorithm, the speaker is able to offer similar functionality to a hearing aid. This allows the device to effectively lift voices out of background sounds, resulting in superior dialogue reproduction. Likewise, the speaker's proprietary (patent-pending) technology is only activated when voices are present in a soundtrack. In addition, the model also includes ZVOX’s proprietary PhaseCue virtual surround system for three-dimensional audio. Two audio inputs are integrated as well: an optical digital and analog/optical 3.5mm.
The ZVOX AccuVoice TV Speaker will start shipping in September for a suggested retail price of $250. In addition to traditional retail outlets an websites, ZVOX is also currently running an introductory Kickstarter campaign with early bird discount pricing.
