Alcons Audio has announced that it is teaming up with Storm Audio and TiMax to present the return of its Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience in an updated all-digital format at the upcoming ISE 2023 show at Fira Barcelona Gran Via in booth 7K600.
Presentations will run at 30-minute intervals throughout the four-day show that begins on January 31. A Dolby Atmos 11.4.8 system will include three Alcons CRMS mkII main system screen channels, two CRMS-SRHV wide channels, 14 CRMSC-SRHV base and height layer surround channels, plus four CRMS-LFE18 subwoofers. System audio power will be provided by eight Sentinel10, four-channel amplified loudspeaker controllers and remote-controlled by Alcons’ proprietary ALControl software.
For pro audio applications, the system will be paired with the TiMax SoundHub spatial processor platform, delivering object-based, delay-matrix spatial mixing for 3D immersive imaging. Listeners will be able to experience soundscapes and moving sound effects via TiMax’s hybrid level/delay dynamic imaging. .
For the residential market, Storm Audio’s ISP Evo digital immersive processor will highlight how it’s well suited to work with the (up-to) 192 kHz AES3 inputs of the Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controllers. The processor is configurable as AES/EBU or AoIP/AES67 versions. The screen will be provided by DreamScreen, long-term partner of the Pro-Ribbon Experience, with a woven/ knitted hybrid projection surface providing a combination of high light gain and audio transparency, while projection will be provided by Sony and madVR Envy Extreme video processing.
Alcons will also be presenting the new QRP40 point source column loudspeakers for pro audio installations, alongside a new design study for the residential market, bringing the company’s renowned pro-ribbon array technology into the heart of the home.
