At the third edition of Research To Business, the industrial research show that was held in Bologna on the 3rd and the 4th of May 2007, RCF was invited to display, inside the ASTER's stand, the innovative intelligent speaker system made in connection with the Regional Program for Industrial Research, Innovation and Technological Transfer.
RCF's intelligent speaker system project is one of the 20 chosen by ASTER (the consortium between Regione Emilia Romagna, Universities, Research Corporations and Companies) as examples of successful enterprise research.
As a matter of fact in 2004 RCF presented a project regarding an innovative sound amplification system able to analyze the surrounding environment's characteristics altering, by auto-equalize itself, it's sound emission for an optimal output in every kind of circumstance. RCF's R&D Team, cooperating with Padova's University and AEB Lab in Bologna, completed the project and made an intelligent active speaker.
The innovative prototype is able to change it's equalization analyzing the environment's characteristics in order to adjust the listening in reverberating and noisy spaces. By cleaning the sound output from the environment factor, the speaker developed by RCF gives incredible quality benefits for both music and speaking listening.
The most intresting applications for this system are in pubblic address systems (train stations, airports, malls, ect.) where a system able to spread perfectly intelligible messages in every kind of situation represents an extremely important evolution in terms of security and correct information communication.
RCF applied the technology developed for this project also to a speaker, which is on the market today, for concerts and big events: the TTL33-A
