Focus Enhancements Inc. has partnered with Aperion Audio to offer consumers the first home theater system with Focus Enhancements’ Summit wireless technology.
Aperion’s Intimus 5 series speakers will be showcased at CEDIA EXPO 2009. The company plans to introduce similar home theater speakers with integrated Summit technology in the first half of 2010.
“Aperion Audio has built its reputation with home theater audio enthusiasts delivering high quality speakers at a value and is constantly researching new technologies to enhance the user experience,” Aperion vice president of marketing , Ed de la Fuente, said. “We are thrilled to offer a reliable and robust wireless solution with Summit, giving customers the superior audio fidelity they deserve, with a simple, hassle-free setup in minutes.”
The Aperion speakers will feature Focus Enhancements’ patent-pending Summit technologies for automatic speaker detection, speaker mapping, speaker channel assignment with SpeakerFinder, and audio sweet spot calibration with MyZone that in seconds produces a time aligned sound field for the listener by adjusting delay and volume to their listening position.
Summit audio is designed for scalability from stereo to 7.1 systems so that consumers can add speakers at their discretion. An uncompressed, 24bit, 48Khz pure digital path from the source to speakers, combined with distortion-free, programmable filters and crossovers tuneable to the characteristics of the speaker cabinets and drivers, delivers unrivaled clarity and frequency response.
“Consumers no longer have to compromise audio fidelity to satisfy their desire for the convenience and simplicity of wireless surround sound. Speakers with Summit’s digital filters deliver improved fidelity over wired speakers using passive crossovers,” Focus Enhancements VP of marketing, Tony Parker, said. “The audio speaker market has been asking for a solution such as this and Summit wireless technology is the first to deliver, forever changing the way consumer electronic companies view home theater and audio distribution.”
