The Opéra History...

A traditional Hi-Fi speaker seeks to cover a wide listening area so that a maximum number of people can enjoy the same sound quality, regardless of their position in the room. 


In contrast, a directional loudspeaker focuses the sound in a privileged virtual cone within which only a small group of listeners can immerse themselves and outside of which the sound is no longer audible.


Directional loudspeakers are used in museums, relaxation areas, above interactive terminals or restaurant tables, or in booths, for example, to broadcast the soundtrack of a TV screen without 
disturb the neighbouring stand.


In practice, the laws of wave physics make it difficult to combine precise focus with high sound quality, so most directional loudspeakers are not capable of creating a bubble of music, but are limited to specific speech signals or noise, without bass.

 

Initially designed for the Montreux Jazz Festival, the Opera directional loudspeaker reconciles sound quality and directivity. Thus, the Opera is the first directional loudspeaker that guarantees a sound immersion both 
localized and musically accomplished. The innovation is based on a patented signal processing algorithm and developed at EPFL by the co-founders of the Lausanne-based start-up Hidacs.
