The Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience Returns to ISE 2017

The Netherlands – ISE 2017 sees Alcons Audio returns to its 'home show' both as a an official ISE technology partner and with an expanded Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience.

Taking place in an acoustically-optimised demo room on Alcons stand 6H148 in Hall 6, the company will be demonstrating the latest immersive surround systems for both the residential / home theatre and live-production / installation markets.

The Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience is a joint collaboration with Astro Spatial Audio, Barco Residential, DreamScreen and Trinnov.

To understand what the Alcons "pro-ribbon fuzz" is all about, Alcons hosts hourly presentations on immersive surround for residential installations and live production applications, in a unique acoustically-optimised listening room.

The audio system will be a hybrid 9x8 immersive surround configuration, comprising 20+ Alcons pro-ribbon loudspeakers, driven by 24 channels of Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controllers with lossless AES3 digital signal distribution. This set-up is designed to reproduce native and upmixed Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X content, as well as Astro 3D Spatial Audio material.

Alcons pro-ribbon sound systems are in use at Walt Disney, NBC Universal, Lucasfilm, Google/YouTube, Levels Audio Hollywood, Hamilton the Musical, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg a.o. and a fast growing number of reference home theatres around the world.
