Legendary US Audio Brand Klipsch Chooses Frontier Solution with Google Assistant


Frontier Smart Technologies, a leading supplier of digital audio solutions, announces that US audio brand Klipsch® has chosen Frontier’s smart audio platform to power its two new premium Google voice-enabled speakers.

Klipsch produces high performance speakers aimed at audiophiles and aficionados around the world. The company has partnered with Frontier to bring voice assistant capability, via the Google Assistant, to two of its leading models – Klipsch Heritage Wireless speakers “The One” and “The Three”.

The One is a 30W stereo speaker - now with the Google Assistant, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth® wireless technology and an 8-hour rechargeable battery. It is a 2.1 semi-portable stereo speaker, and will be priced at $349. The Three (positioned as the One’s “bigger, badder brother”) is a table-top 2.1 stereo speaker with Google Assistant, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth 4.2 and 60 watts of home-filling power. The Three will be priced at $499.

Both models embody Klipsch’s core principles of delivering the power, detail, and emotion of the live music experience into consumers’ homes using the latest audio technologies.

Frontier’s SmartSDK (voice-enabled streaming software solution) and Minuet hardware provide a complete multi-ecosystem platform for brands and manufacturers to develop voice-enabled audio devices which support the latest technologies, including Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in, quickly and cost-effectively.

Frontier is one of a very small number of system integrators working with Google on this technology.

Anthony Sethill, CEO, Frontier Smart Technologies, said:

“It has been a pleasure partnering with the Klipsch team to design speakers with the Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in. Klipsch is renowned for its high-end, engineering driven approach and we are glad that Frontier has helped them bring these remarkable products to market in a timely way.”

Rob Standley, Vice President of Global Marketing and Product Development, Klipsch Group, Inc., said:

“Frontier’s technology, processes and customer support have been critical elements in enabling us to deliver, to very tight timelines, voice-enabled speakers which offer the high performance and emotional experience for which the Klipsch brand is internationally renowned.”

Sofinnova Partners Leads SafeHeal’s €6 Million Series a Financing Round23.3.2018 10:00Tiedote

SafeHeal, an early-stage medtech company specialized in digestive surgery and focused on the development of the Colovac device, announces today that it has closed a €6 million Series A financing round led by Sofinnova Partners.

Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited Statement on Telecom Italia23.3.2018 10:00Tiedote

Given the momentum behind Elliott's campaign at Telecom Italia to improve both performance and governance, Elliott was not surprised to see yesterday's resignation of seven board members affiliated with Vivendi. Unable to advance any meritorious arguments, the Board has simply abandoned their posts to stall for time. Elliott regards this action as cynical and self-serving, in that it delays the ability of Telecom Italia shareholders to express their votes at the upcoming AGM. This is yet another example of minority shareholder rights at Telecom Italia being abrogated and the continued disregard of corporate governance best practice. Finally, Vivendi should note Elliott's forty-year track record of consistent value creation, and sustained, long-term commitments to expose poor governance and catalyse positive change; Elliott's investment history in Telecom Italia dates back to 1999, well before Vivendi became a shareholder in the Company.
