Excerpts from the January 2015 CEO letter to shareholders:
* In the past year, it has become clear which markets will give us the fastest acceptance and the quickest realization of our collective dreams, consumer adoption, brand awareness and financial success. Every day my team and I are focused on creating revenue events with big name customers and their associated partners. As we pursue and conquer these opportunities, it will be clear to our shareholders, manufacturers and content providers -- that consumers prefer the audio perfection created by MAX-D HD!
*Ask yourself -- "What would Max Sound's value be if consumers all over the world realized how MAX-D HD provides a far better audio experience?" You probably have an idea what that value could be, which is probably why you first invested in Max Sound Corporation. We have an idea too, which is why we keep investing our time, energy and financial resources (over seven figures has already been invested by our founders). I have personally invested four months of my salary purchasing MAXD stock in the open market, because I strongly feel our shares are severely undervalued. Our goal is that everyone will know about MAX-D HD and everyone will know about MAX-D stock. Right now the investor audience is small, but as you'll learn below, we think we now have the necessary elements for our shareholder base to grow substantially in 2015.
*Our sales and marketing teams are laser focused on penetrating the smart device industry, content streaming industry, auto industry and the television and film industry (post production audio for movie companies). The development team has concentrated on enhancing the existing MAX-D HD API, while developing additional API interfaces. The MAX-D API can be deployed across all streaming platforms along with most audio/video web based services. MAX-D HD can now reside in audio hardware (speakers and audio receivers -- such as car smart head units).
* One accomplishment in Q4 of 2014 was the completion of testing for Industry MAX-D HD Audio Boxes. I'll talk more about that below.
* We've also completed the initial development of the MAX-D Accurate Voice. Not only does it dramatically improve voice quality on cellular devices, it also has the ability to improve voice recognition in homes smart devices and auto infotainment systems.
*To hear for yourself play this link on a computer with decent speakers
*We now have a MAX-D API (Application Programming Interface) that allows the MAX-D HD proprietary algorithm and coding to be inserted into applications such as streaming services, automotive head units, DSP memory in speakers, developer platforms and web-based applications. We currently have our API in what appears to be the final phase of testing with brand leaders in auto manufacturing, chip sets, gaming consoles and streaming content. Each of these industry leaders has their own custom version of the Android platform as well as other hybrid platforms. Our engineering and programming teams are working hand-in-hand to accomplish a successful integration of MAX-D HD for all platforms.
