Can ‘Invisible’ Transducers Solve OLED TV Audio Concerns?
CEPro.com asks: Could transducer technology be the savior for the sound limitations associated with today’s flat panel TVs? Recently, several integrators seeing the new LG Electronics super-thin OLED TV debated the best way to offer companion audio to go with the flat panel TV. The pros and cons of using in-ceiling, in-wall, soundbar and on-wall options were all on the table, but so was and old school technology that seems to be re-emerging as a possible aesthetically pleasing OLED TV audio solution: transducers.
Indeed, soundbars emerged over the past several years as the de facto audio solution for flat panel TVs with no ability to offer quality (or even barely audible) sound. But that was for TVs that were 2-inches deep. Now with OLED technology like the LG units, the TVs are less than ¼-inch deep.
