VOXX Accessories Corp. Introduces Revolutionary Soundflow Wireless Audio

Soundflow lets consumers enjoy smartphone audio in a big way

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, CENTER HALL, BOOTH 10404 -- VOXX Accessories Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp.  (NASDAQ: VOXX), announced today the launch of a new line of products incorporating Soundflow wireless audio, which instantly transforms smartphone audio into sound that's rich and full. Soundflow requires no wires, no pairing. All you do is lay your smartphone on top of the product's built-in Soundmat. Soundflow does the rest by flowing your smartphone audio to larger speakers. Soundflow wireless audio supports virtually all brands and models of today's smartphones. In fact, almost any portable device with a speaker works with Soundflow wireless audio. VOXX Accessories Corp. will introduce 3 products featuring Soundflow wireless audio in 2013: 2 under the RCA brand and one (1) under the Acoustic Research brand.

"Soundflow grew out of a simple desire: to make it as easy as possible to turn smartphone audio into sound that's rich and full enough to enjoy out loud. Soundflow improves upon an existing technology - magnetic coupling -  to give consumers the most straightforward way of enjoying the music on their smartphones," said David Geise, President of VOXX Accessories Corporation. "Making the technology suit the idea, however, was a bigger task than making a different speaker. To be more than just a novelty widget, Soundflow needed to fit the way consumers use their smartphones, satisfying expectations for aesthetics, performance, and functionality, which required extensive consumer research, together with an intimate knowledge of the engineering and design principles at work."

Soundflow integrates into the home, adding sound seamlessly and simply wherever consumers need it, fulfilling a real consumer need in the easiest, most straightforward way possible. VOXX Accessories Corp. is bullish on the future of the "contact" wireless sound market, with aggressive schedules for rolling out an extensive line of Soundflow products for audio around the home through the coming year and beyond.  

The RCA Wireless Dock Clock Radio with Soundflow (RC250)

VOXX Accessories Corp. begins its line of Soundflow products with the RC250 Wireless Dock Clock Radio with Soundflow. The RC250 uses Soundflow technology to turn smartphone audio into richer, fuller sound. Just put your smartphone on the RC250 Soundmat, and Soundflow does the rest, amplifying smartphone audio through the larger speakers on the wireless dock. The RC250 also features 1 USB charging interface that supports iPhone, Android, eReaders and most tablets, clock radio functions such as dual wake and FM radio, as well as a .9" LED display. The RC250 will be available in May of 2013 and will retail for $29.99.

Geise continued, "In our market research for Soundflow, we've found overwhelming interest in the concept from consumers. To turn this interest into action, we've identified locations around the home where sound can be added to a strategic spot. The nightstand, for example, is an area of the home that has multiple functions and limited space. Still, consumers increasingly ask their nightstands to accommodate a smartphone as well. Our Soundflow wireless audio tabletop and clock radio pieces add smartphone music and charging to traditional nightstand functionality in a single item, starting at less than $30. We've designed Soundflow to add simplicity, not clutter."

The RCA brand is marketed by VOXX Accessories Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp., (NASDAQ: VOXX).

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations.
