Turtle Beach has achieved another significant breakthrough with its HyperSound® technology, as it is now able to create directional audio using a transparent pane of glass. This latest innovation opens the doors for exploration into future glass-based directional audio products and applications in the consumer, commercial and hearing healthcare spaces, including potentially integrating into desktop monitors, commercial displays, desktop speakers, automotive dashboard glass to provide audio warnings directly at the driver, and pretty much anywhere there’s glass there’s a potential for audio.
CONCEPTS – HYPERSOUND GLASS
HyperSound technology is a fundamentally new approach to sound delivery that generates a highly directional, narrow beam of audio in the air. Similar to how a flashlight directs a beam of light, HyperSound directs a beam of audio to targeted listeners in a specific spot, delivering an immersive, 3D-like audio experience. HyperSound Glass is similar in design to touchscreen glass, where there are multiple layers of transparent materials and electronics working in conjunction with the glass. For HyperSound Glass, the glass pane is layered with a set of transparent films allowing it to generate a beam of ultrasound that, through Turtle Beach’s digital processing, delivers crisp, clear audio to the targeted listener.
As we progress HyperSound Glass technology, there is potential for licensing possibilities to external parties looking for ways to integrate the latest audio technology into their products. For HyperSound Glass inquires, contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As we showed an early prototype of HyperSound Glass directional speakers at the 2016 Electronics Entertainment Expo, the media has taken notice. See some of those highlights below:
“Turtle Beach’s HyperSound Glass is one of the most impressive tech demos I’ve seen in years.”
“The possibilities with this technology is almost endless.”
“The future is see-through.”
