Apart from our own unique and superior product design, we also incorporate a number of third party technologies which ensure our products have
the functionality and performance to ensure the best user experience.
Within in our current portfolio these are the main ones that you may appreciate a short explanation of:-
Bluetooth is a wireless technology which is found in many of today’s consumer electronic devices such as mobile phones, tablets, speakers and
It is designed to allow devices to communicate with each other wirelessly over relatively short distances with limited range to keep power drain to a
minimum ideal for handheld devices where battery life is very important. Once paired, two devices can communicate with each other, for example
in the case of our Mini Ellipse, you can pair your mobile phone to the Mini Ellipse portable speaker and then stream your music from your phone or
tablet or whatever Bluetooth device you have paired it with.
aptX® audio coding delivers CD like quality stereo audio wirelessly over Bluetooth. Incorporated into all our Bluetooth A2DP stereo enabled
products, aptX® audio coding delivers the equivalent of ‘wired’ quality without the need for wires. Source material such as music is transparently
transmitted over Bluetooth whether it is stored uncompressed or in another compressed format e.g. MP3, AAC, FLAC.
AirPlay is a wireless streaming service developed by apple that allows devices using airplay to stream audio and video between electronic devices
but requires a wireless, Bluetooth or Ethernet connected network to operate on.
Using AirPlay you can play media from a single AirPlay compatible source such as our Pro Touch or an iPad or iPhone and stream it to multiple
AirPlay compatible devices on the same network including TV’s and stereo systems.
HDMI technology is the de-facto standard for connecting HD equipment.
Unlike older cables, an HDMI connection transmits uncompressed audio-video data in 100 percent digital form. This delivers a world-class viewing
experience, with pixel-for-pixel video accuracy and audiophile-quality sound.
1080p / 4K and beyond - HDMI is built to accommodate extremely high-resolution video, with bandwidth to spare for the current & next generation
of high definition consumer electronics equipment.
HDMI-connected components also have the ability to query each other’s capabilities and automatically adjust themselves for optimal viewing. A TV
and a Bluray player, as an example can auto-negotiate settings like resolution and aspect ratio.
A number of our products like the Pro Touch include an HDMI cable and connector so you can both transfer the
display and use apps on your TV’s display as well as stream video and music.
4K, also known as Ultra HD, refers to a screen resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That's four times as much that the 1,920 x 1,080 pixels found in a
1080p Full HD
It is also referred to as UHD (Ultra HD) but technically there is a difference.
4K describes the 4,096 x 2160 resolution first introduced in Cinemas.
UHD refers to the 3,840 x 2,160 resolution you'll find in 16:9 ratio TVs i.e what you have at home.
Our Pro Touch model supports up to 4K streaming, so if for example you download Netflix to your Pro Touch, by connecting it to your TV via HDMI
you can stream 4K Netflix content.
