SoundVu – The screen is the speaker

NEC is implementing a new sound reproduction technology from NXT, labeled SoundVu, into its LCD computer monitors that may someday find its way into your home theater. In essence, SoundVu can enable an LCD screen to pull double duty as a loudspeaker. By placing a 2mm-thick acrylic sheet over the screen and then vibrating via two ‘moving coil exciters’ placed at either edge, the monitor is able to produce a monophonic sound that simulates stereo using the precedence/phasing Haas effect.
