Compaq Televisions through a collaboration with Berlin-based Mimi Hearing Technologies has integrated Mimi’s technology into Compaq Smart Televisions, scheduled to launch this July. The Compaq smart TVs will be the equipped with Mimi Sound Personalization technology, that adapts the audio to each individual’s unique hearing ability for an immersive, high-fidelity, and intelligible TV experience.
Mimi Sound Personalization, driven by cutting edge audiology research, adapts the sound based on an individual’s or a group’s hearing profile, and through real-time adjustment and optimizes the alignment between a viewer’s hearing and the sound system. For example, spoken dialogue in music, films, and documentaries will be perceived more easily by the audience, and sound more distinct at lower volumes. Mimi improves the sound quality and digital audio becomes more accessible and enjoyable. By integrating the technology, Compaq TVs will ensure ease and wellness in hearing along with a personalized and enhanced smart TV viewing experience.
Anand Dubey, CEO at Compaq Televisions said, “Every individual’s hearing ability and profile is unique, which is especially true for a country like India where noise pollution is high and can lead to varied perception of sound, creating a wide spectrum of hearing profiles. Hence, we felt the need to address this overlooked deficiency in Televisions. Mimi focuses not only on the intensity and delivery mechanism of various components of sound, but also on the audio envelope which is customized to the environment and user profile, delivering a top-notch sound experience.
Philipp Skribanowitz, CEO & Co-Founder of Mimi Hearing Technologies, said, “We are happy to announce this partnership with Compaq Televisions, bringing our award-winning sound personalization to users through a tailored TV sound experience. It’s great to work with a company that embraces the latest technology with a focus on perfecting sound. Achieving perfect sound quality is difficult when ‘perfect’ can vary so greatly from person to person. Mimi bridges the gap between hearing and audio, optimizing the most complex link of the audio chain: the variability individual hearing, ensuring the listener gets a personalized sound experience.”
