JACK – the Wi-Fi guitar cable launches via Kickstarter

From www.musicradar.com on 01/06/15:

“In collaboration with Glasgow University, new Scottish technology company Ingenious Audio has developed what it claims is the “Biggest change to home music recording in 50 years” with JACK, an innovative wireless system based around optimised Wi-Fi technology and designed primarily for home studio use.

JACK provides studio quality uncompressed 24 bit real time audio.

Wireless guitar kits exist today, but to date none have been able to use the high data rate Wi-Fi system.

Using Wi-Fi means JACK can connect to the five billion Wi-Fi enabled devices out there. “Conventional standards like Bluetooth are not optimal for real time audio as they have long transmission delays meaning gaps between playing the note and hearing the sound. JACK’s patent pending technology is nearly 13 times quicker than conventional bluetooth and about three times faster than compressed ‘low-latency’ Bluetooth”. “For the millions of home guitarists who want to free themselves of wires and connect directly to their amps, pedals mobile devices, JACK is the answer.”After years of development and testing, Ingenious Audio has arrived at the final, production-ready prototype and seek funding in order to bring JACK to market. . . .” (via smmry)
