DPS – Digital Power Station by Bongiovi Aviation
DPS Audio by Bongiovi Aviation utilizes Digital Power Station ™ //DPS technology invented by legendary music producer, recording engineer and audio innovator, Tony Bongiovi. DPS is a patented algorithm with a system of profiles, each containing over 120-calibration points. DPS processes audio in real-time, optimizing it for a wide variety of audio applications.
This innovative, transducer-based system allows for more efficient use of space by eliminating large speakers and their associated weight, while providing recording studio quality sound. The elegant interior design aesthetic is maintained without the disruption of speaker grills or commodity speakers. The DPS Audio package also features seat Headphone Modules with multiple DPS profiles for customizable personalized listening.
The result is a truly immersive, “speaker-less” audio experience throughout the aircraft. DPS Audio delivers more depth, clarity, power and immersive stereo field expansion than with a conventional speaker system.
“As a licensed pilot, finding an audio solution in aviation was the original inspiration for DPS technology. Years ago, I began experimenting with transducers to get better sound in my personal aircraft. We’re extremely gratified to now have an aviation partner who embraces audio innovation as much as we do and chose our technology for their latest HondaJet.” – Tony Bongiovi
