Sound Bar Demo

The 1812 does more than play media in this full-featured sound bar demo - it coordinates a complex audio demo with lighting effects. Customers can audition sound bars, select media, add rear speakers, compare TV sound to sound bars, and adjust volume. Sound bars are selected using push-buttons on the right, triggering the first media file to play, and the shelf to light up. Lights under the shelf also highlight the selected subwoofer. The user selects media using a small touch screen. The rear speakers are powered via a smart amplifier that tracks volume control with the selected sound bar. The 1812 starts its silent attract mode after a period of inactivity, ready to attract the next customer.
