ClearView® Audio Launches CLIO™, a Revolutionary Wireless Invisible Speaker

A 2014 CES Innovations Design & Engineering Honoree, Clio Introduced at CES Unveiled

2014 International CES


WALTHAM, Mass. & LAS VEGAS--ClearView® Audio, an entrepreneurial company led by a team of innovative designers and engineers deeply steeped in Boston's acclaimed acoustic speaker heritage, yesterday launched Clio™, a totally unique, invisible wireless speaker, at CES Unveiled during the prestigious Consumer Electronics Show.

This revolutionary new speaker employs an ultra-thin, slightly curved, and optically clear acrylic glass transducer that allows it to disperse sound waves in multiple directions. Because of its innovative acoustic design, Clio can be placed anywhere and produce rich, clear, room-filling sound. Clio's sleek, minimalistic design allows the barely visible speaker to "disappear" against its surroundings.

"We believe that good design, innovative engineering, and advanced acoustic technology are key to the enjoyment of audio in the home," said Stefan Bokamper, CEO, ClearView Audio. "Clio is our first product available to consumers and we are thrilled to enter the exciting space of wireless speakers. We are confident Clio will be hugely popular due to its impressive sound, stylistic fit with any interior design, and versatile Bluetooth® compatibility."

ClearView Audio's patented Edge Motion® audio systems use a differentiating mechanical principal to generate sound. Instead of pushing from behind, like a traditional cone speaker does, Edge Motion-driven speakers actuate a thin membrane along the side in a manner that creates an extremely efficient, piston-like motion in front. The resultant speaker system is thin and lightweight with the ability to produce a rich, full sound across the audio range.

Chief Musicologist at Pandora and architect of the Music Genome Project, Nolan Gasser, shares his excitement, "Finally, a wireless speaker that sounds really good. I am impressed."
