April 4th 2012
For the first time ever Alcons Audio will be exhibiting its evolutionary pro-ribbon based loudspeaker systems at this years CinemaCon show in Las Vegas NV.
Taking place between April 23-26th in Caesars Palace resort halls, the show formerly known as Show West, is the official show of NATO, (national associate of theater owners) and is regarded as the largest and most important annual gathering of cinema owners and operators from around the world.
Back-to-back with the Kino Congress in Baden-Baden Germany the week before CinemaCon, Alcons Audio will be exhibiting it’s Digital Cinema ready systems at both sides of the Atlantic.
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 reproduction.
By 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.
Alcons 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.
