Soniq's new trio: Bluetooth speaker, digital signage, home AV installation


Consumer electronics company Soniq is causing shockwaves with its new Bluetooth speaker, the Rock 7, new Cyberast digital signage for businesses and a home AV installation service.

A trio of new announcements from Soniq has arrived today, with the first being a new Bluetooth speaker with built-in microphone dubbed ‘The Rock 7’.

Whether this will cause any repercussions from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is yet to be seen, but The Rock 7 is naturally compatible with any Bluetooth enabled device, coming in a solid aluminium alloy body wrapped in ‘durable high elastic silicon’ for both outdoor and indoor use, and has a metallic carabiner clip.

Available in black, blue and green, it has a battery life of hours hours, is naturally rechargeable, has a ‘super bright LED night light’ ,and promises ‘high definition mobile audio for hands free and built in microphone.’

Song Su, GM of SONIQ said: “We strive to provide our customers with a range of different products they can use throughout the home and the Rock 7 is perfect for both indoors and outdoors.”

Soniq also offers other audio products including ‘iPod/iPad docking stations, radios, Bluetooth speakers, sound bars and Hi-Fis such as its H10 Mini Hi-Fi System.’

It will sell for $129 at the Soniq website and if you’re a Soniq ‘Club Member’, you’ll also be able to buy the Soniq 10.1-inch ‘Metalbox’ tablet for $249 and get the Rock 7 thrown in, which is said to be a saving of over $50.

The bundle deal runs until midnight, Thursday 19 February 2015.

Also launched today is Cybercast, a new ‘online digital signage platform for businesses’.

Soniq says the release of Cybercast ‘will enable businesses to update marketing messages on the fly and replace the need for traditional and printed Point of Sale (POS) material.’

Promised to be ‘both flexible and easy to use, Cybercast is a high definition multimedia marketing solution that can be updated automatically over the internet. All you need is a smart TV or dongle to showcase the content, an internet connection and the Cybercast app installed on your phone or computer.’

Song Su said “By including a service like Cybercast in an overall marketing mix, businesses will be able to take advantage of the power of marketing in the new age at an affordable cost.”

Finally, Soniq is now offering an AV installation service for the home, including home theatre, HDTV and digital antenna setups with costs starting at $89.

Here, Song Su said “We’ve always been known for quality low cost consumer electronics and wanted to provide our customers with the full in home experience by helping them install their new purchase as well.”

Not limited to just Soniq televisions, the new installation service can be booked via the Soniq website by selecting the specific service via the online store. A technician will then call the customer within 48 hours to book in a suitable time.

The service is currently available to Victorian residents, but SONIQ plans to roll-out the service to other states later in the year.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
