Emo Labs, a Waltham company that has just changed its name to ClearView Audio, said it has raised $1.05 million from private investors as it gears up to unveil a virtually invisible speaker system for audio buffs.
Plans call for ClearView Audio to debut its new speaker system at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in early January.
In a press release, the company said that it uses something it calls Edge Motion technology to make a speaker system that relies heavily on transparent membranes. According to the company, the result is a speaker system that produces a rich sound without sacrificing aesthetics. Indeed, ClearView Audio claims its speakers are so unobtrusive as to be virtually invisible.
In a statement, chief executive Stefan Bokamper said: “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 decor-friendly.”
