While noise-canceling headphones have been around for years, one company hopes to convert entire rooms on superyacht vessels into quieter environments.
The Active Noise Canceling system by Videoworks relies on stand alone speakers that will be built into the walls of the yacht.
The system will work by detecting the frequency of noises coming from a cabin and then emitting a similar noise from the opposite side of the spectrum of frequency. The clashing of the opposing sounds results in the cancellation of the audible portion of the sound wave.
While in most cases the noise is not completely eliminated, it does drop it to a significantly lower level, often sounding like a faint hiss.
The technology seems to work best when the noise is consistent and at a constant frequency – like the drone of the engines on a yacht charter vessel as it chugs from St Barts to St Thomas.
The noise-canceling gadget relies on woofer speakers that measure 22.8 x 11.8 x 4 inches and can be hidden under leather or other soft materials. They operate in the frequency range of 25 to 200 Hz and will detect any changes in frequency caused by the yacht's engines or generators. Concert-level audio quality is assured via an advanced 32-bit analog/digital signal processor and a dedicated digital power amplifier.
