Business Unit Acoustics

The Acoustics business unit offers its customers tailor-made solutions for audio production and reproduction, drawing on more than 20 years of experience in the fields of audio technology, psycho- and electroacoustics. Current developments deal with technologies and systems for the production and reproduction of authentic and spatial sound experiences as well as for the virtual simulation and optimization of acoustic product characteristics. We serve the continuing trend towards miniaturization in the loudspeaker sector by developing intelligent control algorithms for energy-efficient and miniaturized (MEMS) loudspeakers. We also offer expert advice and solutions for the  optimization of electroacoustic loudspeakers and develop new loudspeaker technologies in cooperation with you.
