At this year’s CinemaCon, Alcons Audio will be officially
introducing its evolutionary Cinemarray™ series: The cinema industry’s first
dedicated cinema sound system, utilizing line-source technology throughout.
Specifically aimed at
medium to large applications, the systems offer maximum projection control for reduced influence of room acoustics and superb, non-compressed 1:1 digital sound
implementing line-source technology, the normal reduction of SPL coverage from
front to rear is reduced; The resulting “proximity” effect dramatically
improves the cinema experience for the audience further away from the screen.
Another novelty on show will be the CRS8 pro-ribbon surround: By
utilizing identical componentry as the screen systems, the CRS8 offers the same
voicing for the surround channels. This makes the screen and surround channels
blend perfectly, for a homogenuous sound stage.
A further selection of Alcons’ C-series will be on display, including
the CR1 ultra-compact screen system, with 8-in system depth and the newly introduced
CR3 medium-sized 3-way screen system.
Audio has embraced the cinema market with its pro-ribbon loaded sound systems and
is leading the way with a diverse range of innovative systems designed to meet
the evolving requirements of the industry.
With Cinemas around the
world moving into the digital age theater, owners and filmmakers are demanding
more from technology. The need to design
and deliver an even more immersive experience is key to keeping up with recent
advancements in movie making 3D films are at the heart of this push.
Since the foundation of the Alcons Audio company, the cinema market has
been a key focus and much of the research and development done is driven by
it’s requirements. High dynamic range,
low distortion, shallow form factors and well defined coverage capabilities are
all hallmarks of Alcons Audio systems.
Basic listening of the pro-ribbon systems quickly help people appreciate
the significant benefits of pro ribbon technology. Recent ambassadors include Lotte Cinemas South-Korea,
Cinemaxx cinemas Germany, Eye Filminstitute The Netherlands, iHome theatres
India and Universal Pictures United Kingdom.
