Amptown System Company to Present CINE SOUND LAB at CineEurope 2015 in Barcelona

Amptown System Company will be presenting at CineEurope 2015 from June 22-25 in the CCIB (Centre de Convencions Internacional de Barcelona) International Convention Center in Barcelona. 

Digital Cinema experts will be on hand at stand 812 to answer all questions relating to the speaker brand CINE SOUND LAB. We are looking to establish contact with international distributors whose main emphasis is on reliability and the highest levels of quality. System integrators are comprehensively trained to ensure that the CINE SOUND LAB name is synonymous with perfect performance and outstanding audio experience in all movie theater installations.
CINE SOUND LAB is a new movie theater speaker brand distributed throughout Europe by Amptown System Company. The speaker types available include the Boxer series with 15" subwoofers for large buildings, the Challenger (10" chassis) series for smaller areas and the Longbow series for areas with longer floor plans. The two-way systems function as point sources with high phase fidelity and offer linear reproduction. Appropriately designed low-mid extensions offer support in the reproduction of low centers. An 18" subwoofer ensures optimal reproduction of low-frequency sounds.
Although the low-resonance multiplex casing is compact in size, all CINE SOUND LAB speakers are extremely effective and offer the same excellent level of sound for both low and high audio levels. The generous headroom ensures that the entire dynamic range from whispered dialogue to massive explosions is reproduced in perfect audio quality and free of distortion.
The various CINE SOUND LAB speakers all sound the same and can therefore be combined as required to ensure that every movie theater can find the right solution for its individual needs.

Here are four good reasons why movie theater operators should invest in CINE SOUND LAB speakers:
Acoustic Transparency
The sound reproduction qualities of CINE SOUND LAB front speakers were optimized during the development phase through practical tests for installation behind modern PVC projection screens. The screen presents no problems for the horns which have a radiation angle of 110 x 60 and are specially designed for CINE SOUND LAB, and is acoustically transparent, so the vast, perforated PVC surface has no noticeable impact on sound quality. Thanks to the special design of the speaker, which is based on scientific evidence, every sound nuance effortlessly reaches the audience in all of its glory. This ensures clear stereo sound for every seat in the house, even in particularly wide movie theaters. The clever semi-gimbaled arrangement enables the speakers to be positioned with great precision, independently of the projection screen frame.
Full-Range Surround Sound
One the main benefits of CINE SOUND LAB systems is that the surround speakers can fully reproduce a frequency range from 40 Hz to 18 kHz. In contrast to obsolete analog optical sound formats with severely limited dynamics, such as Dolby Stereo, modern digital soundtracks are not limited in bandwidth in their frequency range. Full-range speakers are absolutely essential to enable the precise reproduction of meticulously created sound as well as its low-frequency components in modern film mixes. This is also a major benefit for the latest 3D audio formats such as Dolby Atmos or Auro-3D.
Due to physical reasons, specific casing dimensions for speakers are vital in order to enable the reproduction of low frequencies. Arrays of several small boxes lead to undesired phase problems which can result in cancellations and discoloration.
Thanks to the wide radiation angle of 110 degrees of CINE SOUND LAB speakers, fewer speakers are required than in the case of rival products. All surround sound information is reproduced precisely according to the original intention of the sound mixer working on the film. Razor-sharp precision is also reproduced masterfully, such as a desired audio diffusion without direct locatability.
Custom-Designed Amplification
High-performance, perfectly coordinated amplifiers are available for CINE SOUND LAB speakers. The dual-channel class D/H power amplifiers have both analog and digital input (AES/EBU), enabling a consistent digital signal flow without any loss of sound in movie theaters. Established structures with processors such as Dolby CP750 can be connected to an analog input using conventional cables.
DSP modules are integrated in the high-performance, high-end amplifiers, enabling perfectly balanced signal equalization with maximum precision (56 bit word length) and making the use of external hardware controllers redundant. The settings are configured according to accepted standards during installation by expert ASC movie theater technicians as well as according to the individual conditions of the particular theater, and these settings will not need to be modified again. There is no chance of inappropriate presets occurring with resulting sound impairment.
Uncompromising Quality
In movie theaters of all sizes, CINE SOUND LAB system components meet the highest sound requirements, while retaining their value and offering an exceptional level of cost-effectiveness in comparison to certain American products. All CINE SOUND LAB components have the "Made in Germany" quality seal, and the manufacturer offers a five-year guarantee based on stringent quality controls of products manufactured through the German art of engineering.
