The world’s first HDMI-Compatible 3D sound active speakers.

The launch of "KISSonix HDS4", the world’s first HDMI-Compatible 3D sound active speakers equipped with "KISSonix HDFX", the innovative 3D sound technology, has enabled the enjoyment of immersive 3D sound on an overwhelming scale through just two speakers.

世界初 HDMI対応 3Dサウンド・アクティブ・スピーカー

革新的3Dサウンド生成テクノロジー"KISSonix HDFX"を搭載した、世界初HDMI対応3Dサウンド・アクティブ・スピーカー"KISSonix HDS4"の登場によって、 2つのスピーカーだけで圧倒的スケールの臨場感あふれる3Dサウンドが楽しめるようになりました。

Creating 3D acoustics normally requires the installing of at least three speakers. Setting up a good audio system requires money and space. However, KISSonix HDFX’s revolutionary 3D acoustic encoding technology turns all kinds of sound sources into 3D sound, allowing listeners to experience highly immersive audio as if they were inside a movie theater, in the comfort of their homes, using everyday stereo devices with only "KISSonix HDS4".

Unlike conventional home theater systems, our system is a breeze to set up. All that’s required is to set up speakers on both sides of the screen, whether it be a TV, PC, projector, or otherwise.

通常、立体音響を体感するためには複数のスピーカーを設置しなければなりません。オーディオを揃えるにはそれなりに費用がかかります。しかし、あらゆる音源を立体音源化するKISSonix HDFXの画期的な3Dエンコード技術により、この"KISSonix HDS4"があれば、自宅でも映画館の中にいるような臨場感ある3Dサウンド体感することができます。

これまでのホームシアターのように面倒なセッティングは必要ありません。 テレビ、PC、プロジェクターなど、画面の両サイドにスピーカーを設置するだけです。

Turn your home into a place that surpasses theaters, and be awed like never before.

Convert the soundtracks of existing movie content, such as that of Blu-ray discs, DVDs, and movies streamed online, into 3D sound in real time to envelop yourself in a three-dimensional acoustic space of overwhelming scale that is difficult to imagine from the compact size of the speakers.

Use "KISSonix HDS4" to turn your home into a place that surpasses theaters, and be awed like never before.

Moreover, it can be used to play not only video content, but also monaural audio of classical music, and famous records of jazz in its heyday from the 1950s, brought back to life in high-resolution sound. The system can play everything from jazz to state-of-the-art digital music, to fully bring out their charms, allowing enjoyment of realistic and high-quality 3D sound.

The system will also enable enjoyment of all your precious video and audio archives of your child’s school sports day or arts festival, fun family holidays, and so on, in high-quality, high-resolution, 3D audio.

あなたの家が映画館・劇場を超える感動の未体験ゾーンに。

Blu-ray、DVD、ウェブストリーミング映画配信など既存動画コンテンツのサウンドトラックをリアルタイムに3Dサウンド変換することで、コンパクトボディーサイズのスピーカーからはおよそ想像しがたい圧倒的スケール感の立体音響空間があなたを包みます。

"KISSonix HDS4"があれば、あなたの家が映画館・劇場を超える感動の未体験ゾーンに。

そして、映像コンテンツだけでなく、モノラル音源のクラシックや1950年代JAZZ黄金期の名盤がハイレゾサウンドで甦ります。ジャズから 最先端デジタルミュージックに至るまで、その音源の魅力を余すところなく再生。 リアル&高品位な3Dサウンドをお楽しみ頂くことが出来ます。

また、お子さんの運動会、学芸会の映像、家族の楽しい旅行の思い出など、 あなたの貴重な映像、音声アーカイブすべてが高音質、高解像度の立体音響で楽しむことができます。

about "KISSonix HDFX"

"KISSonix HDFX" is 3D sound encoding software that combines neuroscience principles with acoustic technology at an advanced level.

People turn the vibrations of cilia in their inner ears into electric signals, which are transmitted to the auditory cortex of the brain allowing them to judge the direction of and distance from the sound source. Making use of this brain mechanism, "KISSonix HDFX"adjusts the distribution of the sound.

"KISSonix HDFX" was developed by Kazuyuki Ito, the CEO of our company. While working as a composer, music arranger and artist, he continued working on the side for 25 years researching 3D audio. He combined the knowledge of a musician accumulated over the years with neuroscience principles to develop KISSonix HDFX with the corporate motto “Convert all the stereophonic environment to 3D surround sound space”.

「KISSonix HDFX」とは 

革新的3Dサウンド生成テクノロジー"KISSonix HDFX"とは脳科学理論と音響テクノロジーを高度に融合させた3Dサウンドエンコードソフトウェア。

人間は耳の奥の繊毛の振動を電気信号に変え、脳の聴覚野に伝え、音の方向や距離を判断します。"KISSonix HDFX"はこのような脳の仕組みに基づき音の配置を調節しています。

"KISSonix HDFX"の開発者は弊社代表・伊藤カズユキ。作曲家・編曲家・アーティストとして活動する傍ら、25年にわたる立体音響の研究を続け、音楽家として積み重ねた知見と脳科学を融合し、「あらゆるステレオ環境を3D音空間に変えていきたい」という夢を持って誕生しました。

Extensive Examples of Deployment.

"KISSonix HDFX" has been deployed in Production I.G's "GHOST IN THE SHELL: VIRTUAL REALITY DIVER",MONDO GROSSO’s “Attune / Detune” Kumi Koda’s “KODA KUMI LIVE TOUR 2017 -W FACE-” “A Bride for Rip Van Winkle” a film directed by Shunji Iwai, etc., with the high-quality KISSonix 3D sound winning the high appraisal of top-class artists and directors.

"KISSonix HDFX"はプロダクション I.Gが制作したVR映像作品『攻殻機動隊 Virtual Reality Diver』、MONDO GROSSO「Attune / Detune」、倖田來未「KODA KUMI LIVE TOUR 2017 -W FACE-」、岩井俊二監督作品「リップヴァンウィンクルの花嫁」などにも採用され、トップアーティストや映画監督も、上質な3Dサウンドを高く評価しています。

Risks and challenges

So far, we have made prototypes to carry out repeated tests. We are currently putting together a manufacturing schedule in preparation for mass production.

We will begin manufacturing with the aim of delivering products in March 2019 to Early Bird backers, and May 2019 to backers eligible for the Kickstarter Special Price.

Should we encounter any problems resulting in changes to our manufacturing or delivery schedule, we will make sure to notify all backers, and do our best to resolve the situation.

Moreover, customers living in the U.S. are asked to understand that they may be required to pay duties on personal goods in accordance with U.S. laws. Duties and other handling costs are to be paid for by the backer.

これまでに、プロトタイプ製作しテストを何度も行ってきました。現在、量産に向け製造スケジュールを組み立て始めています。

Super Early Bird支援者の方には2019年3月に、Kickstarter Special Price支援者の方は2019年5月に、製品をお届けできるように製造を進めて参ります。

もし何らかのトラブルが起き、製造スケジュールや出荷予定に変更が発生する場合には、必ずその旨を支援者の皆さまへお知らせするとともに、問題の解決ができるように尽力致します。

また、アメリカにお住まいの方は、米国で定められている法律に従って個人に関税がかかる可能性があることをご承知おきください。関税および手数料は、支援者の方に負担いただきますようお願いします。
