Procella Audio announced its plans today for the Integrated Systems Expo show in Amsterdam. In a custom-built sound room, Procella and partners Trinnov Audio, Artnovion and Image Screens will showcase the most advanced immersive audio system at the show – a full 11.4.11 channel system capable of Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X playback.
Due to the number of high-performance Procella loudspeakers used and the higher spatial resolution provided by the superior decoding capabilities of the Trinnov Altitude32, this system is designed to rival the immersive qualities of the finest cinemas and dubbing stages. 23 playback channels and 26 Procella loudspeakers will be used, including L/C/Rs, eleven ceiling-mounted overhead speakers, two front wides, six surrounds and four subwoofers.
Procella P815 speakers mounted in a baffle wall will be used for the left, center and right channels, and the new Procella P5 speaker will be used for all surround and overhead channels. A single P18 active subwoofer will be paired with three P12 active subs used for low-frequency balancing.
Decoding of Atmos, Auro-3D, and DTS:X will be provided by the Trinnov Altitude32. The only processor available today that can support up to 32 channels for Atmos, it also supports Auro-3D and will be enabled at the show with the latest immersive audio format — DTS:X. Amplification will be by Trinnov’s new power amplifier, the Amplitude8. This ultra-high-performance class-D eight-channel amplifier delivers 225 watts into 8 ohms, 375 watts into 4 ohms and 500 watts into 2 ohms for effortless playback with maximum dynamic range.
Completing this state-of-the-art theater presentation are partners Artnovion and Image Screens. Artnovion is providing the room aesthetic and acoustic design, as well as providing the room acoustical treatments. Image Screens is providing the acoustically transparent projection screen, enabling use of a baffle wall with the L/C/R speakers placed ideally for cinema playback.
