Warwick Audio Technologies, a UK-based technology company specializing in the development of an innovative high-quality loudspeaker, has moved into MIRA Technology Park.
The move is part of Warwick Audio’s growing engagement with the automotive sector. By strategically positioning itself at MIRA Technology Park, in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, the company has geographically aligned itself with leading automotive manufacturers that have a presence on site.
This closer alignment with car makers is driven by Warwick Audio’s development of its High Precision Electrostatic Laminate (HPEL) transducers, which deliver high-resolution audio reproduction in a thin, lightweight and flexible package, making them ideal for a range of applications, including in-car entertainment systems. Most recently, the transducers have been used in the Sonoma Model One audiophile headphone system.
Manufactured exclusively in the UK, Warwick Audio’s HPEL transducer technology presents a disruptive solution to improving in-car entertainment. Small, flexible, ultra-thin laminate speaker panels can be incorporated into spaces where other loudspeakers simply would not fit. They can be formed into the surface of doors, door pillars, roof linings or even in headrests without compromising those structures. This technology promises to bring a hi-res audio surround sound experience to vehicles for the first time, raising the bar of what can be expected of sound reproduction in an automotive environment.
Dr Mike Grant, CEO of Warwick Audio Technologies, said: “We’ve had a great 18 months and we’re seeing real positive momentum as we start to fully commercialize our groundbreaking technology in the Sonoma Model One headphone system. The move to MIRA Technology Park represents the next step in our journey as a business and our engagement with the automotive sector. MIRA not only suits our operational needs, it is perfectly located at the heart of the European car industry.”
