For the past three years, the award-winning Alcons Audio Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience has been a highlight of the annual US CEDIA Expo. Every year the company improves its presentation and 2018 visitors were guaranteed to enjoy the best Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience yet.
This year Alcons demonstrated its exceptional pro-ribbon solutions for home cinema in a bespoke sound room (SR-12) on the trade show floor, with a 9.x.6 pro-ribbon sound system.
30 minute demonstrations took place throughout the September 6-8 show days, the system comprising three CRMS mkII cinema reference monitor system, eight CRMSC SRHV compact horizontal/vertical reference surrounds, two front width channels of CRS8 medium format reference surrounds and four of the company’s brand new CRMS LFE18 subwoofers.
CEDIA Expo was the public debut of the CRMS LFE18, which is designed for the post-production and high end home theatre market. Featuring a custom 18” woofer with dual-coil motor and extra-long, 30mm excursion capability, it is mounted in a sealed cabinet and SIS pre-wired for super tight reproduction of even the lowest octaves.
The Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience audio system will be completed by six Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controllers, with audio processing provided by Storm Audio’s ISP 3D.32 Elite Reference Édition immersive sound processor. The system will feature all-digital, lossless signal distribution from source to amplification.
For the visual element Alcons is partnering with Sony, which is providing the 5000 lumens VPL-VW5000ES 4K home theater projector with laser light source. The screen will be a ScreenAcoustics UltraWeave V6, fitted with the company’s MotoMask PRO masking system. Together they will ensure visual excellence which matches the exceptional quality of the Alcons pro-ribbon audio system.
“CEDIA has always been an exciting, successful show for us and it is clear that, year on year, Alcons pro-ribbon systems are gaining increasing traction in the residential market,” says Alcons US national sales manager David Rahn.
“We always strive to make every year at CEDIA better than the last. This year, showcasing the Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience in a bespoke, 576 ft2 sound room will match the acoustic space of a high end home theatre more accurately than ever before. It means show visitors will be able to enjoy the best experience from Alcons and our partners so far.”
