Clarion Marine Launches New Premium Speaker Line

Clarion Marine Launches New Premium Speaker Line

The New CMSP speaker line features a sleek, modern design to fit a wide range of uses, optional RGB LED illumination and excellent power handling

 

Clarion Marine, a leader in marine-grade audio solutions, today announced the introduction of an all-new line of premium coaxial speakers and subwoofers for marine applications. Offered in 6.5- and 7.7-inch, the new CMSP coaxial, full-range speakers and matching 10-inch subwoofers benefit from Clarion’s decades of experience in marine audio design.

 

“This was a clean-sheet, premium speaker line initiative, and we refused to settle for anything less than truly exceptional,” said John Zimmerman, Clarion Marine product line manager, JL Audio, Inc. “The CMSP line is a true testament to Clarion Marine’s reputation for lasting durability and value. This line is also representative of a shift in direction for brand styling, which will be seen in many more products to come. Our customers will be blown away by the value of this lineup.”

Premium Performance – Let’s Hear It

 

The CMSP premium marine coaxial speakers feature a bridge-mounted, edge-driven, silk dome tweeter with neodymium magnet and ferrofluid cooling for outstanding high-frequency detail. Integrated within the woofer basket, away from the elements, is a second-order, high-pass tweeter filter. With the tweeter being suspend across the woofer cone, the woofer assembly is completely sealed from the front, to eliminate a common failure point of typical coaxial speakers. This design also creates more woofer cone surface area, which translates to better efficiency and output. The injection-molded woofer cone with purpose shaped center cap and marine-grade suspension components deliver low distortion and excellent midrange response. Available in 6.5-inch with, or without optional built-in RGB LED lighting or 7.7-inch, with built-in RGB LED lighting.

 

The CMSP series also includes a powerful 10-inch subwoofer optimized for infinite-baffle applications, thus not requiring a dedicated enclosure behind the subwoofer. The CMSP premium marine subwoofer feature a long-excursion design capable of high power-handling, to deliver impactful low frequency response with low distortion. Available in single four-ohm or single two-ohm voice coil models, for system design versatility, with built-in RGB LED lighting.

Premium Look, Premium Materials

 

The CMSP series serves as an exciting evolution in Clarion Marine’s speaker design. Featuring a modern, hexa-parallel sport grille design with an elegant metallic accent, the new Clarion Marine CMSP speakers and subwoofers complement even the most luxurious boat models. All CMSP speakers come with both gunmetal and white “sport’ grilles included in the box. The CMSP subwoofer “sport” grilles are available in gunmetal or white as well (grilles sold separately). Accenting the look of the new CMSP line is the built-in LED RGB lighting capable of producing nearly any color you can think of (RGB controller sold separately).

Salt & Sun Certified

 

Utilizing UV-treated, durable, marine-rated materials, the new CMSP line of speakers and subwoofers are built to withstand years of use in harsh marine environments. Specifically engineered, marine grade polymers and finishes were employed for the chassis and grilles in the CMSP lineup. The design team paid close attention to critical connection points and protected them to prevent corrosion. In addition, all CMSP-series speakers feature secure, waterproof wire connectors to protect wires from water intrusion and corrosive elements, as well as help keep them from ever coming loose. All models are built to exceed industry standards for salt-fog/UV exposure (ASTM B117/D4329) and shock/vibration resistance, ensuring excellent long-term durability.

Complete CMSP Series

 

Clarion Marine CMSP Speakers and Subwoofers: All coaxial speaker models include both gunmetal and white “sport” grilles with built-in RGB LED lighting optional on 6-5-inch speakers and included on 7.7-inch speakers. Gunmetal and white “sport” grilles for subwoofer models are sold separately.

VetCell Therapeutics USA Gets FDA Authorization for DentaHeal FCGS Clinical Trial

VetCell Therapeutics USA Gets FDA Authorization for DentaHeal FCGS Clinical Trial

Conducted in collaboration with researchers from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, this is the first country-wide clinical trial to evaluate the safety, efficacy and potency of VetCell Therapeutics’ feline allogeneic MSC therapy for treating FCGS

VetCell Therapeutics USA™, a clinical-stage, pet-focused cell therapy division of PrimeGen US Inc., announced today that it has received authorization from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to begin a multi-centered, country-wide clinical trial to evaluate the safety, effectiveness and potency of DentaHeal™, its investigational cell therapy product, for the control of clinical signs related to feline chronic gingivostomatitis (FCGS). The 200-cat trial will focus solely on treating patients with FCGS that have not responded to full- or partial-mouth extractions and medical therapy.

This authorization represents a major milestone for VetCell Therapeutics USA, as it can now treat feline patients suffering from FCGS with DentaHeal. DentaHeal is an allogeneic, adipose – derived, mesenchymal stem cell treatment. This minimally invasive, intravenously administered cell therapy may help to correct immune abnormalities associated with FCGS in cats.

This novel therapy was developed at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, where Dr. Boaz Arzi DVM, DAVDC, DEVDC, FF-AVDC-OMFS led a successful clinical trial of an investigational MSC product. That pilot study provided the foundation for a patent, which VetCell Therapeutics USA acquired in order to pursue FDA approval for its DentaHeal cell therapy.

Approximately 30 percent of FCGS patients do not respond to standard treatments and require life-long pain medication, antibiotics and immunosuppressive drugs. Sadly, the cats that do not improve, even with implementation of improved dental hygiene, medicines, and oral surgery, are often euthanized.

“FCGS is a terribly debilitating, immune-mediated disease and sadly, the outlook for cats that do not respond to available treatments is bleak,” said Dr. Chad B. Maki DVM, Chief Veterinary Medical Officer, VetCell Therapeutics USA. “Our vision is that DentaHeal will dramatically improve the quality of life for cats with FCGS by completely resolving or substantially improving their condition and provide them with long-term remission and relief.”

Currently, there is no FDA-approved cell therapy product for treating FCGS. The intent of this investigational trial is to evaluate DentaHeal as an innovative, drug-free treatment for FCGS. Led by principal investigator Dr. Boaz Arzi, up to 200 cats will be enrolled based on the protocol eligibility criteria as assessed by experienced board-certified veterinarians. This trial will be conducted in collaboration with UC Davis’ Veterinary Institute for Regenerative Cures (VIRC).

“This is a massive milestone for VetCell Therapeutics USA. Our dedicated and passionate team has worked tirelessly to advance to the clinical stage, and I believe the work being put into R&D and clinical trials will position VetCell as the catalyst for cell therapy becoming a mainstay of veterinary medicine,” said Tom C.K. Yuen, founder and chairman of PrimeGen Global, the parent company of VetCell Therapeutics USA.

VetCell Therapeutics USA plans to start recruitment for this clinical trial this month.

With New Direction, Clarion Marine Relaunches in the U.S. Retail Market

With New Direction, Clarion Marine Relaunches in the U.S. Retail Market

Starting this summer, Clarion Marine will bring new products to a renewed network of authorized retailers.

Clarion Marine is positioned to make 2020 a breakout year by returning to the retail marine audio channel, under the management of JL Audio, Inc. The company has expanded Clarion Marine’s distributor base and is building a network of specialty retailers.

This follows JL Audio, Inc.’s licensing of the Clarion Marine brand from Clarion Co., Ltd. of Japan, an agreement not affected by the subsequent acquisition of Clarion Co., Ltd. by Faurecia, a global automotive supplier based in France.

Since the licensing agreement went into effect in late 2018, JL Audio hired a dedicated group of product planners, engineers and supply chain experts to form a product development team that could lead Clarion Marine’s return to prominence in the marine audio market. The first wave of new products from this team will debut this summer, with many more products scheduled for delivery in 2021.

“Clarion has a deep history as a pioneering car audio company, and a particularly strong reputation as a marine audio brand. We accepted the challenge to return Clarion Marine to a leadership position with products that are relevant, well-priced and able to deliver a great customer experience,” said Andy Oxenhorn, President of JL Audio, Inc.  “It’s very exciting to see the product development team’s hard work come to market. With our disciplined marketing and distribution plan, we expect Clarion Marine to set new records for sales by 2023.”

The Clarion Marine product line is well-focused at key retail price points and will rely on a distribution model that recognizes the value of approved brick and mortar retail outlets. Key distribution partners sharing the company’s vision for the Clarion Marine brand will also play a key role in some markets.

A select group of authorized internet retailers, meeting Clarion Marine’s high standards, will be authorized to sell online.

JL Audio, Inc’s network of sales representatives will manage retail accounts across the United States, guided by the JL Audio, Inc’s sales team. VP of US Retail Sales, Brian Power said, “We have such a great opportunity in front of us, with a great plan for Clarion Marine that complements our well-established JL Audio brand. Our sales team is already hard at work, looking for the best opportunities for success in each market.”

Manville Smith, VP of Marketing for JL Audio, Inc. said, “Our new Clarion Marine tagline, ‘Let’s Hear It.’, anchors our brand message for Clarion Marine. We will focus on communicating in human-centered terms that emphasize the enjoyment our products bring to boaters.” Smith continued, “We will also place an emphasis on Clarion Marine’s longstanding reputation for building products that last in real marine use. We call it ‘Salt and Sun Certified,’ which is a short way of describing the intense testing and certification our products must pass.”

Clarion Marine products have already begun shipping to authorized retailers around the U.S.A.

Facial Recognition That Recognizes Users Wearing Masks

Facial Recognition That Recognizes Users Wearing Masks

Sensory’s TrulySecure biometric fusion (face and voice) platform provides greater convenience and benefit for the new normal. It’s also capable of recognizing users wearing face mask and can now recognize coughs and sneezes.

Sensory announces that its TrulySecure face and voice biometric fusion platform has been adapted for the new normal. With the ability to recognize users while wearing masks and accurately detect coughs and sneezes, TrulySecure provides greater convenience and safety for today’s environment, without compromising on user security.

As state and local governments around the world have started requiring people to wear face masks, many facial recognition systems, like those found on smartphones, are not able to function. Further, most facial recognition solutions cannot enroll the user’s face when partially covered by a mask. Data sensitive tasks that are reliant on facial recognition, like unlocking a phone, logging in to an app and processing a mobile payment fail to work. This leaves consumers frustrated and not able to access key functionality on their smartphone.

Sensory’s TrulySecure utilizes biometric fusion and multiple enrollments to avoid the limitations of typical facial recognition solutions.

Biometric Fusion of Face and Voice

By combining both face and voice into one SDK, developers can leverage both biometrics to address real-world challenges such as face masks or noisy environments. When faces are partially obstructed, the voice biometric provides the extra confidence needed to enable secure access. Alternatively, when used in a noisy environment, such as a restaurant or sporting event, the voice biometric is enhanced with a facial recognition score. Developers can leverage both face and voice biometrics in real-time to provide a seamless, contact free experience to the end-user.

Multiple Enrollments

TrulySecure natively supports alternate appearances by enabling multiple enrollments. For example, users can enroll for facial recognition as they would normally and also create a second enrollment with a face mask on. Many competing software solutions block enrollment when a face mask is worn, but Sensory’s technology can train and use face even with a mask on. For ideal performance and user experience, enrollments for both face and voice can be saved with mask on and mask off. This way the software can always apply the appropriate template to ensure accurate recognition in all conditions.

“In unprecedented times like these, device manufacturers and app developers are being challenged to find new ways to keep people safe and secure,” said Todd Mozer, CEO at Sensory. “TrulySecure does just that, allowing apps and devices to recognize and authenticate users in all conditions, even when wearing masks, thus eliminating the need for people to touch their face or remove their masks when in public. But we’re taking things a step further by updating the Sound ID component of TrulySecure to recognize certain noises that can be indicative of users being sick or around people who are sick.”

Added Features for Post Pandemic Life

Since early 2019, Sound ID has been a state-of-the-art feature within the TrulySecure suite of AI solutions. Sensory has now applied their expertise with deep learning model training to include cough and sneeze detection. At the public level, a technology capable of listening for, and recognizing the occurrence of coughs and sneezes can help business owners track the health of their employees, or cities generate health data statistics for the general population. At the personal level, smartphones and wearables can be used to track the health of users, and even alert them when their cough and sneeze count crosses a certain threshold.
