Multiseat Stereo™ provides precise audio staging for every seat; will debut at KnowledgeFest
SUN VALLEY, CA - Audiofrog announced it will debut the first multichannel audio processing platform developed and optimized specifically for the automotive aftermarket. Multiseat Stereo™ transforms the listening experience for every passenger in the vehicle, providing immersive sound in every seat. The introduction will take place at the annual KnowledgeFest trade show and conference, August 20-22 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.
Audiofrog’s Multiseat Stereo is made possible through a collaboration with PerfectSurround, maker of an award-winning multichannel upmixing process in use by top film, broadcast and recording studios in over 50 countries. PerfectSurround translates simple stereo into 5- or 7-channel audio with no phase artifacts, enabling sound engineers to create the same immersive and believable audio experience for every seat in a theater. Audiofrog has contributed extensive automotive system design and tuning expertise to incorporate additional features and controls that adapt the studio technology to the automotive environment.
“A traditional aftermarket stereo system can sound great in one seat, but it can’t provide great sound for every seat,” said Andy Wehmeyer, president of Audiofrog. “Optimizing it for the driver means passengers get an experience that’s only worthy of an apology. Multiseat Stereo is able to simultaneously give the driver and passenger a focused stage and a more believable sense of space. It’s not just Multiseat Stereo. It’s better stereo. Thank you to the team at PerfectSurround for this opportunity.”
The development of Multiseat Stereo also signals the beginning of a product line expansion for Audiofrog. The company plans to introduce digital signal processors with Multiseat Stereo and complementary amplifiers that also include DSP in 2017.
