Bose VideoWave

One of the more surprisingly effective demos I saw was for Bose’s VideoWave product—for situations when you just can’t have or don’t want separate speakers (and wires) for your TV, but still want better than the typical TV’s built-in speakers. The VideoWave system (available in 46- and 55-inch TVs, $4,999 and $5,999, respectively) servers up virtual surround sound out of the back of the TV, with a console for connecting your myriad sources. A slick onscreen GUI and touch glide operation lets you conveniently make selections. Hundreds of microspeakers offer sound that psychoacoustically does a nice job of imaging - during one part of the demo a laser pointer was used on the sidewalls to “follow” the sound bouncin’ around the room, and the demo worked quite well at highlighting the virtual surround.
