Onsia® flat panel speakers replace the old technology of cone speakers with tiny “exciters” that produce micro-vibrations across a panel. These vibrations create a clear, concert quality sound. The initial application for Onsia® flat panel speakers was to place them in ceilings and walls where they could be concealed behind texture and paint, thereby eliminating any visual indication of the speakers.
Mr. Ventre and his team at Onsia® brainstormed about other applications for the Onsia® flat panel speakers. In the process, the light bulb of imagination came on. Why not put the flat panel speakers behind art? At that moment the concept of Sound Art™ was born. Mr. Ventre engaged Murray Kruger, who has three decades of experience as a picture frame designer and manufacturer, to assist him in developing the right kind of frames, canvas and art that would complement the flat panel speakers.
In addition, Onsia® engineer Juan Osuna began to develop Bluetooth technology for the Sound Art™ speakers. The result is a breathtaking new product that combines visual art with quality sound. Now consumers can buy museum quality frames and art through which they can hear their favorite music. Additionally, consumers can have their own art, family photos, or favorite scenes become speakers through Onsia’s custom process of creating Sound Art. The consumer provides the image (picture or painting) and chooses a frame (or unframed “museum wrap”). Then Onsia® takes what the consumer has chosen and produces a unique Sound Art™ creation, a memory that can both be seen and heard.
