What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

A Revolutionary 3D Sound Experience

Omnos 5.1.2 Soundbar utilizes state of the art audio technology to create lifelike theater sound right in your home.

 

 

Help us reach our $80K goal and every backer will get a free HDMI cable included with their Omnos 5.1.2 Soundbar! We are also adding a new black color option that will be available to all backers at the end of the campaign. Thank you for your support!

 

 


"It's often assumed that achieving an immersive sound experience means having to deal with large speaker systems, but the Omnos 5.1.2 Soundbar speakers put an end to this thought." -Michael Hemsworth, Trendhunter Magazine

 

Our proprietary sound algorithm creates immersive sound like you've never experienced before.

The image quality of modern smart TVs has progressively improved while becoming thinner and sleeker. Unfortunately, these smart TVs lack a bass component and surround speakers that are capable of reproducing all multichannel audio signals. 

The missing component is audio quality, which has been unable to keep up within the design limitations. Thus, the crucial need for a soundbar. Unlike other multi-channel home theater products on the market, Omnos 5.1.2 Soundbar is affordable and easy to install in your home.  

What does 3D sound really feel like? We've created this sound demo video showcasing the Omnos sound algorithm turned on vs. turned off. Don't forget to wear headphones for the full effect!

The Full Sound Coverage of Omnos Soundbar 

The 5 indicates the horizontal speakers that cover left, right, center rear left and rear right, similar to standard 5.1 audio systems. 

The 1 stands for the subwoofer channel, creating deep bass. 

The 2 indicates the two height channels located above the listener's head. The cumulative result creates a truly three dimensional sound experience.

 

Fill Your Home with Sound, Not Speakers 

Omnos is equipped with Yinkman Laboratories' state-of-the-art, patent pending audio signal processing algorithm. 

 

This soundbar can take any sound format from stereo to multichannel audio as an input signal. The signal processing algorithm then converts the input audio signal to 5.1.2 audio signal.

 

 

Omnos soundbar has developed a proprietary and state-of-the-art panoramic 3D sound algorithm that is based on spatial reflection, crosstalk cancellation and HRTF principles resulting in an efficient and immersive listening experience.

 

 

Seven Independent Speaker Units

Each speaker in the Soundbar has an independent audio signal that is processed by a digital signal processer. Three face directly at you, two face toward the sides of the room and two face the ceiling to bounce sound for a fully immersive effect. Each speaker unit has its own cavity to deliver superior sound quality while minimizing interference from speaker units.

  

Deep Bass You Can Feel

The subwoofer is connected wirelessly to the soundbar and completes the comprehensive sound package. With a phase-inverted tube structural design and unique grid bottom, this subwoofer makes your bass much more powerful. 

 

 

Get sound quality that matches - or even surpasses - your visual experience.

 

Design Crafted from the Inside Out

Our creative structural design integrates seven internal speakers thoughtfully oriented for full 3D sound. Each speaker is housed inside individual cavities to deliver superior, rich sound while minimizing interference.  

 

Our advanced manufacturing techniques are refined for the highest quality product. Advanced soldering techniques are utilized for seamless, clean lines.

 

Fabric that Integrates with Your Home Design 

With a wool and linen audio fabric exterior, this soundbar is designed for performance but with aesthetic in mind. All materials are designed specifically for Yinkman Laboratories. Ultrasound cutting technology is employed to ensure high precision and maintain surface quality.   

 

Your Choice of Color

The soundbar comes in five color options to perfectly match your home design aesthetic. Choose between blue, brown, caramel, cream and grey. Backers will choose their color preference via a backer survey at the end of the campaign.

 

Adjust Your Sound Directly from Your Smartphone

iOS and Android Compatible App 

The custom app allows you to control and fine tune your audio for each room. Set your virtual sound field and room tuning preference and switch your devices through a single click.  

For full details about how the app works, check out this demo video:

 

Adapt to Any Playback Content 

Adjust your listening mode to suit your playback content. The app features four listening modes to choose from: Home Theater, Music, Party & Late Night. Each listening mode is optimized for performance in their respective playback content. 

  • Home Theater: Omnos can restore the real life audio effects of all your favorite movies and TV programs. Get the 3D surround sound effects of the movie theater experience all from the comfort of your couch. 
  • Music: This listening mode creates a panoramic surrounding sound field to create a performance appreciated by any audiophile. The Omnos algorithm optimizes for best audio timbre. 
  • Party: Boost your bass to create the perfect party through augmented sound dynamics and rhythms. 
  • Late Night: While watching late night TV, Omnos can reduce the dynamic sound effect in the program through algorithmic rebalancing techniques so you don't wake up everybody in the house.

 

Adaptive Tuning Capability

Use the Omnos app to calculate your space and fine tune the soundbar for optimal performance. Using the Omnos Play app, direct your Soundbar to measure the room. Your Soundbar emanates waves that sweep the room in three dimensions to estimate the volume of the space. The Soundbar then fine tunes its settings for optimal sound effects in that space. 

 

Easy Setup and Installation into any Room

With simple single cable connection and a user friendly app, Omnos can be conveniently installed within minutes! Simply unpack your Omnos Soundbar, place it under your TV ensuring there are no surroundings to block it, and follow the simple set up instructions in the app.

Plug the power adaptor into the DC input of the soundbar and then into an AC wall outlet. Connect the HDMI output of the soundbar to the HDMI input port on your TV. 

 

The subwoofer connects by a power adaptor to an AC outlet in your home. Press the power button and press the front on/off switch.

Risks and challenges

The working prototype has passed the validation test and a small batch was produced. The risks would be possible components supply chain issues, but such risk will be very low as we have already secured capacity with all our component suppliers. We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan with our Agile Manufacturing Center. We are highly confident that our team can maintain our production schedule through unexpected events.
