Transforming How We Experience Audio.

From Speakers and Headphones to SoundBeaming™

Until now, there have been two ways to hear audio: out loud and publicly via speakers, or quietly and privately with headphones. At Noveto®, we’re introducing a third and new way to listen using a patented technology we call SoundBeaming™. This is an entirely new type of sensory listening that will change the way people experience audio.

With SoundBeaming™ you can hear audio from a variety of sources privately and without disturbing others. And because the sound is beamed directly outside the ears, listening becomes far more sensory and natural. In fact, you can even experience sounds in spatial 3D without needing complicated surround speaker setups or being limited to the stereo sound of headphones.

Noveto® SoundBeaming™ places ultrasonic waves just outside your ears, creating a 3D sensory listening experience with privacy and without disturbing others - no speakers or headphones.

The Science Behind the System

SoundBeaming works using ultrasonic waves and beamforming to place sound just outside the ears. The waves are generated using Noveto-developed proprietary DSP algorithms and pushed into the air via a custom-designed transducer array. From the inside it may look like a small speaker, but you won’t hear anything coming out.

A 3D sensing module built into the hardware locates and tracks the position of your ears in real time, at which point the ultrasonic waves converge into small pockets of sound just outside the ears. Here the sound can be heard again as normal acoustic waves without disturbing others.

Move your head in any direction and the two sound pockets will magically follow. Spatial 3D capability makes it possible to experience sounds placed anywhere in space regardless of head movement.

A Listening Revolution

Speakers and headphones are good for certain applications, but SoundBeaming offers a completely new way to listen with three key advantages:

A new sensory listening experience

Noveto’s technology goes beyond traditional listening by making the sound feel as if it comes from almost within oneself and by offering true spatial 3D audio capability.

Hear audio privately without headphones

Headphones can be uncomfortable and cause isolation during work or family time. SoundBeaming delivers audio privately without anything to get in the way.

Enjoy audio without disturbing others

Whether making a video call, watching TV at night, or playing video games in a crowded living room, SoundBeaming keeps those around you undisturbed.

Imagine a World…

Where sound can be private and spatially three-dimensional. Free from wearing headphones and without disturbing others. Where you can almost feel the sound coming from within. With SoundBeaming, the possibilities are virtually endless. Below are just a few examples where Noveto’s technology can improve the listening experience.

Video Conferencing

Working in an open-office environment or at home? Set up a SoundBeaming device with your computer and you’ll be able to make video and audio calls privately and without creating excessive noise pollution—all without the need to wear any physical device that cuts you off from your team or environment.

Home Entertainment

Ever want to watch a movie or play a video game at night but couldn’t since it would disturb others around you? SoundBeaming is the answer. Built into a television, soundbar or gaming system, this amazing technology can deliver full 3D sound that keeps you immersed in the action without getting in the way of others (or their sleep).

Automotive

Whether receiving navigation instructions, traffic alerts, a phone call or entertainment, a SoundBeaming system built into your car enables driver and passengers to receive their own choice of audio without creating sound pollution or closing off the outside world. Safe and satisfying.

Fitness

Imagine walking up to a treadmill or stationary bike and hearing the onscreen audio free from headphones. It’s not only more hygienic, but also more comfortable to exercise without a sweaty device that can get in the way, fall off, or stop working due to a low battery.

Hear the Future

SoundBeamer™ Demonstrator

Noveto products come in two forms: stand-alone branded hardware and embedded solutions for third-party products. The company’s first consumer device, SoundBeamer 1.0, is planned for release in December 2021. This compact, desktop unit is designed primarily for video conferencing but can also be used for SoundBeaming anything from podcasts to meditation and more.

SoundBeamer 1.0 can be paired to any Bluetooth device, such as a computer or tablet and has everything built in:

• 3D sensing module for locating ear position and built-in mic
• Proprietary Noveto DSP and chipsets
• Custom-designed dual transducer array
• Noveto Connect utility software

Noveto will simultaneously be licensing SoundBeaming technology across diverse product categories and markets: OEMs are invited to collaborate and customise unique experiences using the SoundBeamer Demonstrator (available today). Watch this space for further announcements.
