Velodyne Wins Prestigious EISA Award for European Subwoofer of the Year 2004-2005

Morgan Hill, CA (October 20, 2004) — Velodyne Acoustics, Inc. announced that the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has named the Digital Drive DD-10 as the European Subwoofer of the Year 2004-2005. The subwoofer was recognized by the 50 leading photo, video, audio, home theatre and mobile electronics magazines from over 20 European countries for its outstanding innovation and technical excellence.

The Digital Drive DD-10 is a DSP-controlled, high gain servo subwoofer. Powered by Velodyne’s patented 1250-watt RMS Energy Recovery System (ERS) switching amplifier, the DD-10 is part of the first subwoofer series to incorporate Velodyne’s patent pending Digital Drive room equalization system. This latest Velodyne innovation allows the subwoofer’s frequency response in any room to be observed on the user’s television, digitally corrected in real-time, and stored in the unit’s memory to assure ideal performance in the consumer’s listening area.

“We are delighted to receive this award. Recognition from an independent and well-respected organization such as EISA in not only an honor, but also reinforces our continuing innovation and technological advances in subwoofer technology,” said Derek Whiteman, international sales manager for Velodyne. “Room equalization is a huge challenge for critical listening, and the DD-10 is just one example of how Velodyne is anticipating and responding to the needs of the market.”

The EISA Awards applaud the new products that combine the most advanced technology, the most desirable features, the ultimate expression of design, the most satisfying ergonomics and greatest value for money.
