The Audio Weaver platform makes audio feature innovation easy and empowers product makers to collaborate across development teams, reducing design time from weeks and months to hours and days. By partnering with DSP Concepts, LG has been abe to dramatically accelerate the development process, bringing the GP9 to market in less than a year.
"With more gamers looking for an alternative to fatiguing headsets, we saw a clear market opportunity for a speaker that can deliver quality voice communication against the background of loud game audio." said Michael Park, VP of LG AV Business Division at LG Electronics "That's why our team was thrilled to work alongside DSP Concepts for this project. The company's TalkTogether solution provides the audio features needed for a speaker to enable two-way voice communication. This ensured us that the GP9 would successfully deliver a seamless audio experience for gamers everywhere."
The GP9 speaker boasts LG's proprietary 3D Gaming Sound technology, which incorporates a specially-designed head-related transfer function (HRTF) algorithm that optimizes the perception of spatial audio. GP9 also features Game Genre Optimizer with two modes to customize game audio to match what the user is playing. In addition to the audio capabilities, the device features customizable RGB lighting that can display 16.8 million different colors, creating an even more immersive gaming experience.
"With all of our experience building complex, voice-enabled speakers and sound systems for brands like Spotify and Kakao, we're acutely aware of the challenges that go into developing advanced gaming speakers," said Chin Beckmann, CEO and Founder of DSP Concepts. "We enjoyed working with LG to develop a gaming speaker that unlocks an entirely new experience for gamers by offering an alternative to always-on headsets while enabling two-way voice communication even against the backdrop of intense gameplay."
The UltraGear Gaming Speaker (GP9) is available for purchase through Amazon at $499. For more information on DSP Concepts please visit www.dspconcepts.com.
