As a few of you know I have a very special place in my heart for Aftermaster, mainly because they gave me a bag at Showstoppers in Las Vegas and produced a product I liked and thought was somewhat of the star of that night for commercial purposes.
So, what the Aftermaster model that was demoed at Showstoppers/CES four months ago did was take HDMI input, process the audio portion, and spit out a remastered sound stream where you could hear the voices and you could hear the explosions but you didn’t have to worry that you were going to blow the kids out of their beds while you’re watching a Hollywood blockbuster.
It sounded great, from the Avengers (or perhaps Guardians of the Galaxy,) demo I saw – I could hear the dialogue, I could feel the explosions, but the overall volume wasn’t something that would shake you awake. It’s something amazing for those who have kids, don’t want plants falling off of shelves, or live in an apartment with neighbors who go to bed at 8pm.
The new version they’re unveiling today evidently works on anything. HDMI, headphone cables, probably could attach it to a goat if you had the right adapter.
Anyhow, as Paul is still a lazy POS and has a few things to do today, let me direct you to their Indigogo campaign and a press release (below)
INTRODUCING AFTERMASTER PRO
THE WORLD’S FIRST PERSONAL REMASTERING DEVICE
A WHOLE NEW CATEGORY IN CONSUMER ELECTRONICS HAS BEEN CREATED TO TRANSFORM THE WAY AUDIENCES HEAR AUDIO IN ALL CONSUMER PRODUCTS
Hollywood, Calif (April 12, 2016)— Today, Aftermaster Audio Labs—an industry leading audio technology company—unveiled the world’s first Personal Remastering Device, The Aftermaster Pro™. The new sleek, compact and portable device offers a genuine breakthrough in the quality of audio reproduction by remastering all audio-enabled devices in real-time. The Aftermaster Pro has created a new category in consumer electronics by offering a single portable device that dramatically improves all consumer audio.
Born out of a rich music industry background and developed by a team of award-winning sound engineers, the Aftermaster Pro delivers unparalleled audio experience to consumers, significantly enhancing the audio of their televisions, smartphones, headphones, laptops, tablets, gaming consoles and virtually any other audio-enabled devices by:
- Substantial increases in clarity, depth and fullness in audio not available through any other technology
- Clearer, louder and balanced dialogue and substantially less volume adjustment while watching TV
- More fullness and low end from small speakers
- A never-before-heard quality level in music playback
Aftermaster’s world-class team of audio experts have produced, engineered and mastered more hit music than any audio company in history. To create Aftermaster Pro they combined their expertise with their new audio processing technology, AfterMaster, which is the only audio enhancement technology available that dramatically improves audio throughout the entire frequency range. Virtually every sonic detail is heard, combined with unmatched depth, fullness and clarity.
“I’m thrilled to announce our first consumer product, the AfterMaster Pro, the first personal remastering device for consumers,” says Founder and CEO, Larry Ryckman. “Our award-winning sound engineers spent years developing Aftermaster Pro, a first-of-its-kind product that allows consumers to literally remaster all of their audio seamlessly with our Aftermaster technology and experience a whole new level in sound.”
Frustrated with the overall quality of mass consumer audio in the market, the Aftermaster team was determined to find a solution to the expensive home entertainment systems that made broad claims about sound quality, but ultimately offered little substance when it came to solving dialogue and audio problems. When used specifically for television, Aftermaster Pro raises and clarifies the dialogue level, virtually eliminating the need to adjust volume in order to hear what people are saying during your favorite TV shows and movies. With its built-in long-life battery, the Aftermaster Pro can also be used on-the-go to provide the best audio that consumers have ever experienced wherever they are and however they choose to enjoy sound.
