Scaeva Technologies Unveils New Green Speaker Technology at NAMM
Scaeva Technologies, Inc.
First fundamentally new speaker and headphone driver designs in 90 years
SAN FRANCISCO – January 18, 2018 – Several groundbreaking inventions were announced in 1925: television, masking tape, frozen food… and the dynamic speaker driver.
Scaeva Technologies Inc™, inventor of the ScaevaSAFE™ content protection platform, will be unveiling its radical redesign of dynamic audio drivers at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Show, January 25-28, 2018. The NAMM Show is an annual event that its organizers describe as "the world’s largest trade-only event for the music products industry.”
Steve Curd, Co-founder and CEO of Scaeva Technologies, states, “Scaeva is the first company to produce a truly green, magnet-free dynamic loudspeaker technology which delivers both efficiency and high quality. Protecting artists, and ensuring that their art is delivered with pristine, immersive sound is in our core DNA.” Geoff Boyd, Scaeva’s Chief Scientist and lead inventor, adds, “I have devoted my professional career to developing technologies that enable a sustainable marketplace for music and other creative content creators. I am thrilled to be part of a team that shares my vision of environmental responsibility.”
Scaeva’s patented ActiveMag™ loudspeaker redefines audio reproduction by replacing core components of existing loudspeakers with an active field coil and a flat panel pistonic audio transducer. By eliminating the need for rare earth magnetic materials and copper, the Company has directly addressed numerous environmental threats. It has been shown that mining rare earth materials, necessary for manufacturing high performance speakers, releases dangerous radionuclides and poisonous contaminants into the environment.
By contrast, Scaeva’s new, patented design utilizes plentiful, harmless materials, coupled with highly efficient additive manufacturing methods. In line with Scaeva’s core focus on protecting audio content, ActiveMag is also the first technology that enables the decryption of audio content within the physical speaker driver itself, as a future capability.
Scaeva’s ActiveMag speakers also deliver higher performance than existing technologies. They consume 50% less power at higher volumes, while exhibiting broad frequency response with industry leading sound dispersion characteristics. The initial drivers have been designed for home smart speaker applications, with larger designs suitable for powerful cinematic and live sound applications coming soon.
Scaeva is also unveiling its revolutionary MagPlanar™ Pro headphone drivers. Utilizing aerospace materials and laser-tuned suspension, the industry-leading 68mm MagPlanar driver reproduces sound with a professional-quality frequency response curve in a rugged, high-yield mechanical design.
Scaeva will be exhibiting its ScaevaSAFE™, ActiveMag™ speaker and MagPlanar™ headphones at NAMM, January 25-28, booth 11046. Please contact us at email@example.com to schedule a call or a time to meet with the Scaeva team.
