Christie just announced the launch of the Christie Vive Audio LS Series four-way screen channel and two-way surround loudspeakers at CinemaCon 2016. Featuring planar ribbon driver technology with its low distortion and superior transient response characteristics, LS Series screen channels are single-enclosure designs and ideal for most 5.1 and 7.1 distributed sound applications. Christie says the LS Series enclosures offer a cost-effective entry into superior cinema sound.
There are six models in the Vive Audio LS Series lineup. These include the LS1 and LS2 screen channel loudspeakers, as well as the LS1S, LS2S, LS4S and LS5S surround channel loudspeakers. Rotatable waveguides on the LS Series screen channels supports deployment in low profile situations or for use as corner surrounds in larger 5.1 applications. Their single-enclosure design ensures quick deployment and reduced labor costs and their shallow depth enables deployment in even the narrowest of behind-screen spaces. Moreover, manufactured by Christie, the LS Series loudspeakers are a perfect complement to Christie’s award-winning digital cinema projection systems and, when combined, offer a complete, single-source exhibition solution.
