Bose VideoWave II overview

  • 1Description

The Bose Videowave II 55" Entertainment System is a high-def flat panel TV monitor integrating a hidden speaker array that links to a media console via one cable. The console sports all the inputs needed to attach up to six source components (including a cable/satellite/DVR, Blu-ray Disc player and video game system). The system comes with an iPod/iPhone dock and a wireless click pad remote. You control all your components through the TV screen. An audio setup process customizes the sound according to your room's unique acoustics. Digital processing in the Videowave II creates the illusion of sound coming from areas of the room where there are no speakers. The built-in Wave Guide produces deep bass without a separate subwoofer. In fact, the Videowave II Entertainment System precludes the need to wire and install any speakers at all.

Vivid Video Picture
The VideoWave II system delivers a 1080p picture on an LED-illuminated high-def display. And with a 120Hz refresh rate, action sequences are displayed smoothly. The video quality is a result of Bose's screen calibration process. The screen is encased in a hand-finished aluminum frame.
Cinematic Sound Without A Separate Sound System
The VideoWave system creates clear and immersive sound from a speaker array hidden behind the monitor. Bass is reproduced using six high-performance woofers. They're matched to a proprietary acoustic wave guide folded inside the display. The wave guide strengthens low-frequency sound to deliver the unmistakable impact of bass with no speaker in view and no separate subwoofer. The system also places sound where no speakers exist. Seven speakers are positioned to form an array. It's combined with proprietary signal processing to steer sound to the right, center and left. The array works with a Bose invention called Phase Guide Radiator technology that targets sound to specific areas so you hear sound coming from different parts of the room -- putting you right in the action and delivering spaciousness that adds more realism to your entertainment. The result is a movie theater-like experience without the need to wire and install speakers.
Automatic Audio Calibration Tailored to Your Room
Your room is unique, with size, shape, textures and other elements that can affect the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQ audio calibration system overcomes these acoustic challenges so you don't have to change a thing. This proprietary technology first analyzes the size, shape and reflections in your room, then adjusts the VideoWave II system for optimized audio performance.
Click Pad Remote
You control the home entertainment system with a high-tech remote. Its few buttons control the most basic viewing functions: power, volume and source/channel switching. Everything else is as easy as touch, glide, click. Want to scroll through your cable programming guide or access your DVR menus? Just touch the pad with your thumb, glide around and click to make a selection. The functions of your connected devices are displayed right on the HDTV screen, framing whatever you're already watching without obstructing the show.
Guided Setup
The Unify intelligent integration system guides you through the initial process of setting up and configuring the system. It helps you choose the right cables and inputs, and programs the click pad remote to operate your connected devices. After completing the initial setup, you can use the Unify system at any time to change your system setup and configuration.
Integrated iPod/iPhone Dock
You can directly attach the following Apple devices: iPod touch (1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation), iPod nano (3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th generation), iPod classic, iPod with video, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPhone. (An adapter may be needed for the latest Apple devices.)
