In the year of Alcons Audio’s 15th anniversary, ISE 2018 sees the return of the popular Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience, new products and the company being an official Technology Partner for the new World Masters of Projection Mapping competition.
For the Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience, Alcons will again be teaming up with Astro Spatial Audio (ASA) for pro installation applications and with Trinnov, DreamScreen and Sony for residential projects. High quality immersive sound demonstrations will take place hourly in an acoustically-optimised room, alternating between each market. The audio system will be a hybrid 9.X.8 immersive surround configuration, used to reproduce native and upmixed Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X content, as well as ASA 3D material using that company’s SARA II Premium Rendering Engine.
Alcons will also be unveiling new products which address demand from both the residential and pro audio markets. More details will be revealed closer to the show, but they are sure to be received very favourably by ISE visitors, as well as forming very important additions to the Alcons sound designer’s toolbox.
Another key part of Alcons’ ISE 2018 presence will be its role as an official Technology Partner for the World Masters of Projection Mapping, a new competition being produced as a co-operative venture between Amsterdam Light Festival, Integrated Systems Events and the RAI Amsterdam.
Finally, the company will be hosting the first of a number of special events to mark its 15th anniversary, a period which has seen the company’s pro-ribbon technology go from a virtually unknown, niche product to being the choice of many high end cinemas, touring engineers and home theatre installations throughout the world.
“The best way to experience the quality and power of our systems is to hear them for yourself. Audience expectations have never been higher and, by working collaboratively, sound and vision manufacturers can deliver an unrivalled sensory experience,” adds Tom.
ISE 2018 takes place at the Amsterdam RAI from 6th – 9th February 2018.
