Gefen tackles noisy adverts1 September 2010
Connectivity solutions provider Gefen is now shipping its new GefenTV Auto Volume Stabilizer. This device solves one of the most common complaints heard from consumers when watching television: a noticeable rise in volume levels during commercials. This solution eliminates that problem, keeping the volume the same throughout TV programs and commercials. It will also level the volume on different CDs and audio mixes. Everything is heard at a consistent level, improving the listening experience.
The GefenTV Auto Volume Stabilizer uses Dolby volume technology that works with most audio/video and multimedia systems. A full-range audio experience is sustained, with low frequencies boosted and high frequencies adjusted to optimal levels that the user sets.
Three inputs/outputs are provided for both analog (L/R) and digital (optical; coax) audio devices. All three inputs are switchable and live; users select which audio source will be adjusted. There is also a bypass feature allowing audio to pass through without adjustment.
The Auto Volume Stabilizer installs easily, and sits between the audio/video source and the A/V receiver or HDTV display. Users select their connected source, set the volume, and the Auto Volume Stabilizer maintains consistency throughout the experience.
