[NAMM] Jack transmits audio via WiFi
Ingenious Audio, a new company based in Scotland, introduces its Jack connector that directly sends audio via WiFi.
Jack is a little box with an adjustable 1/4” jack that connects to any guitar, bass, amp, keyboard or any device that features a 1/4” input, and transmits audio in real time via the WiFi protocole. Ingenious Audio says latency is low, without specifying the time.
Audio resolution is 24-bit, uncompressed and the little box includes a long life battery that recharges via the mini USB port.
Thanks to this new device, you can send audio directly to your computer and soon to your iOS or Android tablet or smartphone (apps are under development) without the need of any additional router or server. The team also wants to develop VST plug-in support in the future.
Jack is currently being crowdfunding on KickStarter and should be available starting from May, 2015. You can pre-order yours now at a reduced price, or even get packs with 2 or 4 Jacks, which allows for connecting one device to your instrument, another one to your amp, effect pedalboard, etc. and get rid of cables.
