Emo Labs Inc., maker of “invisible loudspeaker systems, has raised $1.05 million in funding. The company also now does business as ClearView Audio, it announced. Details of the investment were not released.
Emo Labs, Inc., the developer of invisible loudspeaker systems, today announced that it has secured $1.05 million in funding from a group of private investors. The company, Emo Labs, Inc., now does business as ClearView™ Audio.
“This new funding will be used towards launching our first consumer electronics product. Our products will be truly unique – clear audio from an invisible speaker that is beautiful and décor-friendly,” said CEO Stefan Bokamper.
Conventional speakers have used the same technology for more than 80 years. Most of these conventional speakers are housed in unattractive “black boxes.” As a result, rooms are visually blocked, cluttered with wires and interior design aesthetics are compromised. ClearView Audio’s cutting edge, patented Edge Motion™ technology uses a very different principle to generate sound. Instead of pushing a traditional cone speaker from behind with a magnet, Edge Motion-driven speakers work with a thin, slightly curved membrane that is actuated along the edge area in a manner that creates an efficient, piston-like motion in front. The resultant speaker is extremely thin – yet produces a rich, full sound across the audio spectrum. The membrane is made from optically clear material that allows for totally new, invisible speaker designs.
ClearView Audio will be announcing the company’s new products at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, January 8-11, 2013. The company will be exhibiting its new products at Eureka Park, a specialized TechZone exhibition area within The Venetian.
