Kenwood Showcases Prototype OLED Illuminated Flat Speakers
Kenwood has unveiled a set of stereo speakers that is also an OLED white light panel.
The prototypes feature ultra-thin, flat speaker technology and incorporate the OLED light source to double as lamps. They were developed through a joint venture between Kenwood and Professor Junti Kido from Japan’s Yamagata University.
Apparently, these speakers are a “side-effect” from the development of an OLED evacuation sign with an integrated speaker. Kenwood is developing the sign for schools and commercial buildings that will double as a sound beacon and emergency announcements.
