Noveto is an privately held Israeli company co-founded by university friends Tomer Shani and Noam Babayoff with the vision to free the world from the audio constraints of headphones and speakers.
Noveto is transforming how we experience audio with SoundBeaming™: a new technology which beams sound waves only to your ears and creates a spatial 3D sensory personal listening experience without disturbing others - no speakers or headphones. As well the AI-based built-in face tracking and voice recognition enables a very natural and intuitive interaction, a cornerstone for the new generation of smart home apps and services.
SoundBeaming™ is an entirely new way of sensory listening like nothing before and will change the way people experience audio. After five intensive years of development to mature the technology and ecosystem, we are launching our first stand-alone product the SoundBeamer 1.0, which will start production in Q3 of this year. We will then rapidly scale by enabling OEMs to integrate and customize the experience throughout diverse industries with a focus on smart home audio under the leadership of CEO Dr. Christophe Ramstein.
Noveto currently holds over 45 pending and issued worldwide patents and is headquartered in Tel Aviv, with offices in Switzerland, Germany and the U.S.
Noveto comes with a strong world class roster of engineers experts in the audio physics, embedded control algorithms, electronics and hardware. All are passionate and excited to be part of one team that is delivering SoundBeaming and the SoundBeamer 1.0™. They have worked together for many years and burning midnight oil to deliver a system that truly works. At Noveto we work hard and play hard!
