Sound beyond the screen
A car races left to right. A storm ominously gathers strength around you. The VideoWave III system delivers sound well beyond the screen. It captivates you the first time you hear it … and every time thereafter.
Exclusive PhaseGuide™ technology combines with a unique seven-element speaker array and advanced digital signal processing for convincing cinematic effects. Six high-performance woofers and a proprietary acoustic waveguide reproduce resounding bass for even more realism.
Whatever you like to watch, you'll love to see it on the VideoWave III system. It delivers a stunning picture on an LED 1080p HD screen. And with a 120Hz refresh rate, action sequences are displayed in smooth fashion. The video quality is evident, with the most natural picture possible ensured by a meticulous—and unequaled—screen calibration process. And it’s all in one elegant package, with a hand-finished aluminum frame.
The VideoWave III system simplifies home entertainment by putting everything in one place, with no need to change the aesthetics of your room. The innovative built-in sound technologies mean there are no speakers to wire and position. And the simplicity doesn’t stop there:
Up to six sources—like a Blu-ray Disc™ player, cable box, video game system—connect to our media console
Our innovative click pad remote lets you control everything with ease
Controlling a home entertainment system has never been this graceful—or simple. Its few buttons control the most basic viewing functions: power, volume, source/channel switching. Everything else is as easy as touch, glide, click.
Want to scroll through your cable programming guide or easily access your DVR menus? Just touch the pad with your thumb, glide around and click to make a selection. The functions of your connected devices are displayed right on the HD screen, unobtrusively framing whatever you're already watching.
The Unify® intelligent integration system guides you through the initial process of setting up and configuring your system. It helps you choose the right cables and inputs, and programs the click pad remote to operate your connected devices. After completing the initial setup, you can use the Unify system at any time to change your system setup and configuration.
Sound tailored to your room
Your room is unique, with size, shape, textures and other elements that can affect the sound you hear. The ADAPTiQ® audio calibration system overcomes these acoustic challenges so you don’t have to change a thing. This proprietary technology first analyzes your room, then adjusts the VideoWave III system for a consistent, high-quality performance.
Setup and service
As a VideoWave III system owner, you'll receive the highest level of Bose customer care. Within one business day of your purchase, one of our specialists will call to provide information on delivery and setup and answer any questions you may have.
When your VideoWave system is delivered, we'll set it up, connect all existing sources, program the click pad remote and provide a complete system demonstration. You only need to relax and enjoy.
Streaming music with SoundTouch™
There’s a level of versatility with this system you’re going to love—and it goes well beyond the thrill of home theater. With a separate Wi-Fi® adapter (available early-to-mid 2014), you can stream Internet radio and playlists from your music library. All at the touch of a button on your remote. Imagine: You've just finished watching an action-packed blockbuster. Then you switch right over to your favorite radio station without even reaching for your smartphone. It's all made possible by SoundTouch™

What sources can I connect to my VideoWave® III system?
You can connect a variety of HD video and music sources, such as a Blu-ray Disc™ player, DVD player, cable box, gaming system, Apple TV, Roku player and many more. If it has HDMI® or analog connectors, this system can integrate it to give you a great audio-visual experience. The VideoWave III system is designed to be flexible—with 6 HD inputs and a remote code database that can be updated—so you can connect most any source you want, now and in the future.
Do I need a separate receiver with my VideoWave III system?
No, you do not need a receiver with the VideoWave III entertainment system. The control console houses all connections for your sources and lets you manage them with ease. If you want AM/FM radio, you will need to connect a tuner to the control console.
Can I connect my digital media server (e.g., Roku box) to the VideoWave III system?
Yes. There are many third-party devices that allow you to connect to a computer or the Internet to listen to music or watch video content. Devices like Roku and other digital media servers can be seamlessly integrated with the VideoWave entertainment system like all other audio and video devices.
How can I be sure the system will perform at home as well as it did during the in-store demonstration?
Each VideoWave III system undergoes a meticulous calibration process to ensure the HD display is consistent across all units. So the performance you see in the store—or at a friend’s home—is the same performance you’ll enjoy in your home.
Do I need a subwoofer to complement the system?
No, all the acoustics—including bass performance—are built into the back of the display.
Can I enjoy content from my iPod/iPhone?
Yes, the system is "Made for iPod/iPhone"—certified so you can enjoy movies and music from either type of device. Find out which iPod/iPhone models are compatible with the VideoWave III system.
What is the optimal placement for the VideoWave III system?
The VideoWave III system is designed to perform in a wide range of locations, including non-symmetrical rooms. With ADAPTiQ® audio calibration technology, we are confident that the performance will be exceptional. We do not recommend placing the VideoWave system in an enclosed cabinet, or recessed into alcoves.
What is the VideoWave III system warranty period?
The system is backed by a limited two-year warranty.
How do I know the VideoWave III system will remain up to date and work with future sources and devices?
The VideoWave III entertainment system contains a database of remote control codes that can be updated using a computer connected to the Internet. If the system is unable to identify a particular device remote, it will guide you through a software update process to help you find it by providing the latest available information.
When will the VideoWave® III entertainment system feature SoundTouch™ for streaming music?
We anticipate the SoundTouch™ wireless adapter will be available in early-to-mid 2014. With this separate adapter, your system will be SoundTouch™ enabled to stream Internet radio, and your music library wirelessly using your home Wi-Fi® network.
