PRODUCT BACKGROUND

After launching the H2-4D in late 2021 we were immediately inundated with requests to develop a more cost effective and simple HDMI to AES67 / DANTE®  solution where small form-factor is required.

In June 2022 I decided to create a small focused team within Arvus and officially started the H1-D project. Over the following months we observed the Spatial Audio ecosystem evolve significantly, and thus we realised we needed to advance the H1-D design to enable full firmware upgrade-ability so it could meet future market needs. After extensive research, development and direct market engagement it became obvious that the H1-D needed to become a Linux / Shark based platform with a whole new firmware topology to allow feature and functional flexibility. 

​Parallel to this we physically engineered the H1-D to be a robust device plus we the designed its 'look' to be a touch retro and utilitarian to emphasise its commercial applications, while keeping it within the Arvus design language used currently. 


All of us here at Arvus are very excited about the potential of the H1-D to be globally adopted to accelerate the use of Spatial Audio. Through firmware updates we aim the H1-D to continue to meet the progressing needs of the Spatial Audio revolution for many years to come.
