The race is on to see who will be first to market with a Dolby Atmos-enabled in-wall speaker. As noted in yesterday’s report, SpeakerCraft is staging an impressive demo of its working Atmos 100 Height Module here at CEDIA 2015. A few aisles away, Triad has its own Atmos-enabled module, the cleverly named InWall Height Module.

You can’t walk too far through the aisles of CEDIA without running into an in-wall/ceiling speaker—and nearly all of them look alike.

The cutout is, of course, neatly concealed by an inconspicuous flush-mount grille.

The displays featured at CEDIA are invariably projectors.

And Sony showed three new 4K projectors at the show...
