Bose Redefines Home Entertainment with the Videowave Entertainment System
Brilliant picture and sound all on one uniquely simple remote control
SINGAPORE – 29 September 2010 – Atlas Sound & Vision today has introduced the Bose® VideoWave™ entertainment system, combining a home theatre sound system, 46" 1080-pixel LCD display, and music system into one revolutionary new product.
There are no separate speakers, bass module or speaker wires.
Now, for the first time, a single enclosure delivers a high-definition picture and the audio experience of a high-quality home theatre system. And all connected devices − for watching TV and movies, or listening to music − are controlled by one click pad remote, and an interface on the screen. The Bose® VideoWave™ system will be demonstrated and sold in Atlas Sound & Vision stores beginning October 15, 2010.
“The Bose® VideoWave™ system creates an entirely new category of product,” said Santiago Carvajal, business director for Bose® Video Products. “We first combined picture and sound without compromising either. That gave us an opportunity to solve another problem recognised by nearly everyone: the complexity of using multiple remotes to manage separate devices − like a Blu-ray™ player, cable box, iPod® or DVR. Our new remote lets you control everything on-screen. There’s never been a home entertainment system with this kind of performance and simplicity.”
Mr. Michael Tien, CEO of Atlas Sound & Vision added, “Atlas Sound & Vision is proud to be the first distributor worldwide to partner with Bose® for the launch of the Bose® VideoWave™ system. This is a testament of our level of commitment and dedication to all our corporate partners. This revolutionary product will redefine a new generation of home entertainment systems, and represent a turning-point in history. Through such forward-thinking and cutting-edge products, we are committed to providing the highest level of audio visual enjoyment to our customers.”
The Bose® VideoWave™ system is the result of 10 years of research, representing the most advanced consumer product ever developed by Bose®. Combining a high-performance audio system with an LCD display required proprietary computer modelling tools to predict and eliminate sources of vibration and heat. Advancements in multiple Bose® engineering disciplines enabled the successful integration of audio and video, making the entire system no larger than the screen itself. It includes highly advanced software and electronics, multiple channels of amplification and a custom speaker package − all invisible. And yet remains slender and elegant enough to be wall-mounted or placed on a table.
A Breakthrough in Sound: Home Theatre Performance, No Separate Speakers
The VideoWave™ system delivers unmistakable cinematic sound. Even at the highest listening levels, the system reproduces music and programming with clarity and no audible distortion. For the impact of deep low notes, a cluster of six high-performance woofers is carefully matched to a new, powerful acoustic Bose® waveguide. For the spacious, immersive quality of home theatre, a new invention − Bose® PhaseGuide™ sound radiator technology − is combined with a seven-element speaker array and advanced Bose® digital signal processing. Together, they deliver sound well beyond the screen. Discrete sound is aimed − and heard − in places where there are no speakers.
The Bose® VideoWave™ system can be positioned almost anywhere. Bose® ADAPTiQ® audio calibration technology ensures the best sound possible for any room; it recognises room size, shape − even furnishings − and adjusts the sound automatically give the best sound possible in the room.
A Breakthrough In Simplicity: One System, One Remote
The VideoWave™ system’s ease-of-use is unprecedented for home entertainment. All of today’s content can be easily accessed and controlled with just one remote, through a touch, glide and click.
The new Bose® click pad remote features a built-in sensor and only includes buttons for the most-used functions: powering on and off, changing channels, adjusting volume and selecting sources. Users simply touch the click pad, and only the controls for what’s being watched appear on the screen −without interfering with the picture. As the thumb glides around theclick pad, a highlight scrolls through the commands. Choosing a command takes a simple thumb press − a click − and the VideoWave™ system responds instantly. Because the Bose® click pad remote uses RF technology, it doesn’t need to be aimed, and all the devices it controls can be hidden from view.
The VideoWave™ entertainment system comes with a console that connects to the screen with one cable. Sleek, small, and understated, it connects up to five high-definition entertainment players. A dock for an iPod® or iPhone® is also included. An exclusive feature −video mute − lets users enjoy music without picture. The Bose® VideoWave™ entertainment system has a detachable table stand and is compatible with all third-party VESA wall brackets (sold separately).
It is available with delivery for S$9,999 from Atlas Sound & Vision. Atlas Sound & Vision’s delivery includes VideoWave™system setup and review, connecting entertainment sources, ADAPTiQ® audio calibration to optimise the system for an owner’s room, and recycling of an owner’s current television.
