Ascendo Immersive Audio (AIA) is now expanding into the North American home cinema market with heir debut being at next month’s CEDIA show.
Their demo at CEDIA sounds impressive: 24 speakers, 24 kW, fully active and digitally networked. The new immersive cinema formats Dolby Atmos, Auro3D and DTS: X are implemented uncompromisingly in one set up.
Not only is the implementation exceptional, but also the acoustic result. The Ascendo-experts paid special attention to dynamics and speech intelligibility. By DSP-controlled Coax systems, which are powered each with two 500-watt Class-D, a virtually unlimited dynamic is reached. The overall system power of the CEDIA demo is 24 kW.
Stefan Kopf, managing director of AIA, says, “When Ascendo gives its name to a theatre system, we apply not only the strictest standards for the technology but also to the sound quality. Of course, dynamics and speech intelligibility are the main features for a stunning movie experience. However, only by Ascendo’s typical authenticity in sound, this system generates a one-of-a-kind experience, whether with a Blockbuster or a music video. This is only possible with the latest networking and DSP technology on which we have researched more than four years.”
The cinema is easy to install, reliable and future proof through the Ethernet AVB networking of the active speakers. Surround processor, Ethernet switch and CAT cables, that’s all what is needed to install the scalable solution. A separate rack or technical compartment is not required anymore. Whether you have a 5.1 or 32 channel setup, the system grows with the needs.
Ascendo Immersive Audio GmbH (AIA) is specialized in development and sales of uncompromising active, DSP controlled and digitally networked speaker systems for the modern generation of 3D home cinema. To meet the challenges of the new immersive audio formats, Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D and DTS:X, AIA uses networkable systems based on Ethernet AVB. AIA is a daughter of Ascendo High-End loudspeakers.
