Ny 'smart' soundbar platform
Frontier Smart Technologies, der er blandt markedets førende leverandører af platforme til opbygning af digitale konsumerenheder, præsenterer nu den nye featurerige Venice X platform til 'smarte' soundbars (inFrontier Smart Technologies, the leading technology provider for digital audio devices, announces its new feature-rich Venice X platform for smart soundbars at mass-market prices.
The global soundbar market totals 20 million units a year. Lower priced devices, retailing for EUR 49-149 MSRP, are a key segment of this market. These entry-level soundbars typically provide stereo or 2.1 surround capabilities to enhance the basic audio capabilities of many TV models. However, they generally lack Wi-Fi connectivity, so cannot offer a range of 'smart' features.
By adding Venice X to these soundbars and making them 'smart', brands can make the soundbar the true entertainment centre of the home.
Venice X adds capabilities such as access to online music libraries from services such as Spotify or Amazon Music Unlimited, internet radio, podcasts, Bluetooth audio streaming, DAB+, FM, mobile app control, and cloud connectivity for future upgrades.
Venice X is a cost-optimised, customisable system which enables brands and manufacturers to build high quality smart soundbars cost-effectively, at truly mass-market prices.
Anthony Sethill, Chief Executive Officer, Frontier Smart Technologies, explains:
- Venice X offer makers of mass-market soundbars the opportunity to create differentiated products cost-effectively. With the addition of key music streaming services, such as Spotify and Amazon Music Unlimited, Internet Radio, podcasts, DAB+ and Bluetooth, combined with the traditional soundbar use cases of TV audio, Venice X really does put the soundbar front and centre of a consumer's audio-visual consumption experience.
