Another Great CES In 2014

welcometoCES2014This year’s International CES was great for Velodyne. We were able to hold many face to face meetings with our worldwide suppliers and distributors. We really do value our relationships and it’s nice to be able to solidify our partnerships in this manner rather than the usual Skype call. We also had the opportunity to connect with the press directly at Unveiled and conduct recorded and live-streaming interviews.

IMG_4221

IMG_4222During the course of the week, we were able to show off many of our new products. In addition to our vLeve, vBold and vQuiet, we had our vFit on hand. It had literally just come in, and is technically still not available, but our first fitness headphone was well-received. Our new wireless sub, the Wi-Q, was a big hit. We gave it front-and-center status in our suite at the Venetian, and are sending out several units for reviews. We also had many subs in finishes the public has not seen from Velodyne before. We had subwoofers in gold, red and purple metallic. Additionally we had a subwoofer wrapped in leather. CES gives us the ideal opportunity to get feedback from both the press and our customers on potential new products. Velodyne personnel and staff who really know our products inside and out were on hand to answer technical questions regarding our audio equipment. The constant flow of traffic through the suite was exciting and kept us going all week long.

IMG_4264A definite highlight was receiving the Editor’s Choice Award from Stereowise Plus. Velodyne President, Marta Hall was on-hand to receive the award personally.

Another highlight was Marta Hall’s interview on a webcast for Geekbeat.TV. She so eloquently shared information about our company and our three divisions, as well as our headphones and our artist skins. The exciting part for most was when she announced we would be giving our free headphones to everyone who came to our website to register for our newsletter. It was incredible – the response we received was outstanding. In Velodyne’s spirit of giving, it is just another fun way we can share our great products with the public.

IMG_4236Due to some recent announcements by the Ford Motor Co., we had David Oroshnik from our LiDAR division present at the show this year. Our LiDAR car was on display in the Sands Ballroom, where thousands of onlookers each day could see our technology scan the environment in real-time, 3D, on a large flat screen. David held plenty of meetings and press interviews for this division and answered all of the product questions regarding our patented LiDAR technology as well. The questions ranged from basic, “What’s that?” to the very complicated. It was quite a busy spot to be as we also had our headphones and skins on display complete with a listening station.

IMG_4340Velodyne is a fun and intrinsically artistic company. We had one of our friends and fans, Marquette King, punter from the Oakland Raiders on hand to take photos, sign autographs and discuss his love of the brand. We also had two talented dancers from SCC Presents reign in the crowd and distribute literature. There was never a dull moment for us in the Ballroom.

IMG_4367We also participated in the Fashionware wearable tech fashion show again this year. This show is “growing up”. With it’s own room dedicated to the show in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, this year’s presentation had a full runway, modern lighting, 2 large screens and a hosted bar and warm appetizers. We had two models in the show, one wearing our vBold bluetooth headphone, and the other wearing our vFree. Both models wore outfits that were featured from other wearable tech companies. This was the perfect environment for us to show our products as fashion and technology are at the core of who we are. It was an honor to participate in this event.

How will we top CES 2014? We now have almost a whole year to prepare for next year’s show. We will need every last minute. Until then, Las Vegas. Viva!

Marquette King Visits Velodyne

marquettesmile

This past week one of our higher profile supporters came to visit us at Velodyne Headquarters. Marquette King, punter for the Oakland Raiders stopped by during our office holiday luncheon to meet our employees and sign autographs. Charming and humble, with a wide, genuine smile, Marquette showed great interest as he toured our production and warehouse area. He even got a rare treat, to speak to our CEO and Founder David Hall.

King played for Fort Valley State University, where he was MVP his senior year. In that 2011 season, King led the Conference in punting with an impressive 43 yards per punt average.  21 punts landed inside his opponents’ 20-yard-line and sixteen of his punts were for 50 yards or more. The following year, he got a 3-year deal with the Oakland Raiders but ended up on the injured reserve list for the 2012 season. It wasn’t until the veteran punter on the team became a free agent that King was really in competition for the job during this last preseason, which he secured when his competition, a veteran punter, was cut.

Marquette loves our headphones. He has unique taste and sense of style,  and he is very interested in creating a custom headphone skin with Velodyne. His favorite headphones are our vBold wireless headphones, for their deep, rich sound. These headphones enable him to move freely without wires. And, he’s always on the move. We look forward to trying to keep up with him in the off-season.

Velodyne at CES January 7-10, 2014

CES photo

Every year, hundreds of thousands of people from around the world descend upon the city of Las Vegas, Nevada for the International CES. Thousands of exhibitors use CES as the platform to share their technological innovations in consumer electronics. These big players in technology also launch thousands of new products at this show each year. We will kick off CES 2014 with Unveiled. This official CES media event will be held  at Mandalay Bay, Level 3, South Seas Ballroom C on January 5, 2014.

Just like last CES, Velodyne will have a presence in two spaces. In the Sands Ballroom, we will occupy spaces #71119 and 71121 with our LiDAR car. We will have one of our fully functioning LiDAR units on display, complete with a real-time readout/display on a monitor. We will also have a headphone listening station at the rear of the car for those who are interested in our personal audio line. We will also occupy last year’s suite at The Venetian, #30-131. In this suite, we will have not only have our headphones but our subwoofers and accessories as well. Current and new customers will be meeting with our sales and executive staff as well as demoing our offerings. New on the lineup for this year will be our vLeve with artist skins, vBold bluetooth headphone, and our vQuiet active noise canceling headphone. Additionally, our latest headphone, the vFit, just arrived at Velodyne headquarters this week, and will be on display. This new headphone is an in-ear model with an earhook which is great for keeping the headphones on during strenuous activity. We will also have our Wi-Q wireless subwoofer as well as many other favorites from both our sub and headphone line.

We will also be participating again in the Fashionware Show, which is a wearable tech fashion show held in the Venetian Ballroom Level 2 on January 9. This is a spotlight on the new popular sector where fashion and technology meet and a perfect fit for Velodyne.

Hope to see you there! Ping us in advance on Twitter if you’d like to meet up: @velodyneaudio

Work Off Holiday Excess With The vFit

3_blueRunning is my personal passion, but after family and work it unfortunately comes in third on my list of priorities. However, since running is my “ME” time, I make the most of it. If I’m not running with a friend, thus making a social event out of it, I am running with headphones. When I’m running with my music, I am making my own personal party out of my run.

I won’t lie when I say that the vFit is my most anticipated Velodyne product release to date. The vPulse is an amazing, well-reviewed in-ear headphone which I have used to work out but the vFit is a fitness-targeted headphone. The most attractive feature of these headphones for me are the sport ear hook to keep the headphones on your ears. Plus the vFit comes with 3 sizes of ear tips in 2 different colors to ensure proper fit. The cord clip to prevent flopping up and down when running or on an elliptical trainer at the gym is key.

From a technical standpoint, I am impressed these headphones, like the vPulse, come with a mic for phone calls and controls which are located on the cord. The 10 mm driver coupled with a 20hz-20Khz frequency response means incredible sound, living up to vPulse standards.

Cosmetically speaking, the initial offerings of blue and pink on black should meet the needs of most fitness enthusiasts who require good sound until other colors are released. These headphones should be available in time for holiday shopping so stay tuned. I know I will!

New From Velodyne: vBold Bluetooth Headphones

 

Satin Silver vBold

Satin Silver vBold

Just in time for the holidays, Velodyne is launching our sophomore wireless headphone effort, the vBold. The vBold is conveniently compatible with Apple products and Bluetooth compatible devices. Their unique design is credited to Marta Hall, our President and recognized international artist. Similar to the vFree, the vBold have intuitive on-ear controls which set these headphones apart from most headphones on the market. These headphones are available in matte black and satin silver and fold up into a carrying pouch included in the box.

Some noteworthy features of the vBold are the re-chargeable battery which lasts over 10 hours, with the flexibility to use them wired if needed (wire included). The microphone in the headphone can be used for phone calls as well as online gaming. The convenience to move freely while talking on the phone, hands-free is priceless. The Bluetooth connectivity goes to a range of 30+ feet so the ability to function untethered becomes extremely easy.

Want to impress your friend or loved one with an amazing gift for the holidays? Go bold. vBold.

Step Out In Style to Fight Addiction

brentshapiro

Velodyne had the honor of teaming with celebrities in a noble cause at the Summer Spectacular hosted by The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness. Attorney Robert Shapiro and his wife Linelle founded their foundation when their son Brent succumbed to alcohol and drug abuse in his early 20’s. After the loss of their son, the Shapiros hoped to create awareness about alcohol and chemical dependency and stop the spread of this disease.

This party and fashion show raised over $500,000 for the foundation. Attendees such as Larry King, Paula Abdul, and Sugar Ray Leonard supported the successful event. Velodyne donated 35 of our vPulse in-ear headphones, the ideal fashion accessory for those on the go.

Marta Hall, Velodyne President, has been close to people who have struggled with addiction. “We need to recognize it as a serious illness and provide real solutions.”

The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness  seeks to conquer alcohol and drug dependence through education and support.

Airport Entertainment

vQuietFor those of you who haven’t heard about Velodyne’s newest partnership, our headsets can now be found in a large number of major airports throughout the United States at Airport Wireless storefronts.
Maybe you forgot to bring along a quality, stylish listening device for your trip…No problem! Head over to an airport directory, find the Airport Wireless store and discover a range of choices including vPulse, vTrue, vFree and vQuiet- all with their unique Velodyne flare.

We all know airports and layovers can be terribly boring. I definitely do. Recently, I made the cross-country flight from California to Pittsburgh, PA where I go to school. However, I found myself a little bit of entertainment when I got there.

Pittsburgh is one of the airports that features the amazing “v” series products, so naturally, I wandered over to find them. Not only were they displayed with a great amount of class, but one of the employees said that the vQuiets were “awesome!”

Velodyne quality is undeniable and now, an abundance of travelers can experience it for themselves! Next time you find yourself in an airport, find an Airport Wireless store, see what the employees have to say and try out a little bit of Velodyne3 ingenuity for yourself.

Finish Ticket Interview Following Sold Out Show

DSC_3867

Velodyne spent some time with Gabe Stein, drummer of Finish Ticket after their sold-out performance sponsored by Velodyne, Inc. at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on Friday night. The band powered out an energetic performance to 600 adoring fans, their biggest headlining show yet. But not without first announcing the winner of our band merch pack complete with a pair of black vFree headphones, autographed by the band.

Velodyne: If you could say one word to describe the concert what would it be?

Gabe: Unreal.  As we were all driving back, we all decided it felt almost like a dream.

Velodyne: What was your favorite moment?

Gabe: Looking out and seeing my entire extended family—my uncles, aunts, parents, my band mates parents were all out there.  I also saw some old friends in the front row I didn’t know would be able to make it.

Velodyne: What were your most challenging moments? 

Gabe: Getting ready for it.  We spent obviously weeks and weeks preparing, getting ourselves ready.  We had a lot of preparation in addition to the music, like creating our own light boxes that said Finish Ticket.  It was stressful.  We found out it was sold out 18 minutes before we went on and that made everything okay.

Velodyne: What did you think about on stage? 

Gabe: Growing up I would play drums every day in my garage, thinking ‘maybe one day I’ll actually get to play for a few people.’  Getting to actually do that was always my ultimate goal.

Velodyne: How did you feel on stage?

Gabe: At first I was a little bit anxious, waiting to play.  The second we got on stage it was just like practice.  And it was like finally, finally here!

Velodyne: f you were a type of animal on stage, what would it be? 

Gabe: I would say a driving horse.  I learned at a young age the drummer is supposed to help keep the band together, keep everything moving, control the pace.  So I would say a horse, but in a cool way!

Velodyne: If you could take home only one photo from the concert, what would it be of? 

Gabe: Before our encore we all stopped playing and then the second we came back in the strobe lights went crazy.  I couldn’t really see anything or hear anything besides my drum set.

Velodyne: Any final thoughts?

Gabe: We’re just so thankful everyone came out to support us!

 

–Frankly, it was our pleasure.

NightAudienceBRVelodyne Inc. proudly partnered with Bottle Rock in Napa Valley over May 9-12, joining such headliners as The Black Keys, Kings of Leon, The Shins, Flaming Lips, Train, Cake and Zac Brown Band in supporting local and national charities.  With over 60 bands, comedians, top Napa restaurants and wineries, this festival was a must for anyone into the festival scene that could appreciate a well-organized event at a clean venue.

As with any first year event, there were some kinks to work out but all things considered this festival was great. The bands did not disappoint. We saw set after set of incredible talent, performers who brought the crowd exactly what they came to see. The highlight for Velodyne was being able to get our headphones autographed by some key artists such as The Black Keys, The Zac Brown Band, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Dirty Projectors, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. These autographed headphones were donated to the online auction to benefit the Lung Cancer Foundation, the Breast Cancer Fund, the International Mental Health Research Organization, the Napa Valley Youth Symphony, and several more local and international non-profit organizations.

Nightly, Velodyne hosted a VIP Afterparty where we gave out free t-shirts, stickers and tsotchkies. We had a listening station where festival attendees could try out our vFree bluetooth and our vFree studio headphones. They were available for purchase at a significant discount with a special coupon code. Also on display (and for sale) were our new headphone skins, which can be used to personalize the vFree headphones, as well as an upcoming unreleased wired headphone. We also held a skin design contest, where VIP partiers could let out their inner artist. We had so many beautiful, intricate and colorful designs entered into the contest that it was hard to choose just one. The winners we chose each received a vFree headphone to go along with their personalized skin. It was really a lot of fun to see what people could come up with, given a blank canvas and a few Sharpie pens!

Additionally, one of the festival bands, Vintage Trouble, rocked us with a powerful performance at our VIP Afterparty. They blew us away with incredible shows twice in one day. Most of us had never even heard of them before seeing them at the festival. That was part of the beauty of Bottle Rock, after seeing some incredible bands, we became fans!

Velodyne’s first turn at Bottle Rock was a lot of fun and we hope to sponsor this event next year. Hope to see you there!
