Viva Innovation! Alcons Audio and ASA Bring Immersive Live Sound to InfoComm 2018 in Vegas
USA – At last year’s annual InfoComm show, delegates in Orlando – the destination where ‘anything is possible’ – were treated to the US debut of the Astro Spatial Audio: Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience. This year, just as appropriately, the ‘Live Entertainment Capital of the World’ is the latest stop on its international tour.
InfoComm 2018 takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Nevada, where Alcons will be showing the benefits of its industry-leading, pro-ribbon audio technology in three separate areas.
Demo Rooms N105 and N106 are where InfoComm visitors can hear Alcons systems from Tuesday 5th June through to Friday 8th June.
In the acoustically-optimised room N106, the Astro Spatial Audio: Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience will showcase the remarkable possibilities of high quality, object-based immersive audio from 3D live sound specialist Astro Spatial Audio (ASA). Hourly demonstrations will take place each day, featuring the company’s 3U rack-mountable SARA II Premium rendering engine, used in combination with Alcons CRMS / CRMSC SR Cinema Reference Monitor systems and the new VR5 ultra-compact versatile monitor. The demonstration will deliver the ultimate in clarity and coverage, which is ideal for any immersive application.
Previewed in February and officially launched at the Prolight+Sound show in April, the VR5 is the first professional audio monitor that features Alcons patent-pending waveguide technology, allowing any dispersion to be achieved in the vertical plane. It is the ideal unit to highlight the innovation of ASA’s live 3D audio in demonstrations that have been impressing trade show visitors throughout the world.
In room N105 the half-hourly Alcons Audio Pro-Ribbon Sound Systems demonstrations will introduce show visitors to Alcons pro-ribbon technology with a 5.1/7.1 immersive audio system, featuring VR8 compact versatile monitors, CRMS Cinema Reference Monitor Systems, CB181slFV high output shallow subwoofer, CRS8 medium-format reference surround speakers and Sentinel10 amplified loudspeaker controllers.
As well as the demonstration rooms, Alcons is exhibiting on Booth C582 from 6th - 8th June. Here a range of the company’s pro-ribbon systems will be on show, including the VR5 ultra-compact versatile monitor, VR8 compact versatile monitor, LR7 micro line array and LR18 compact mid-sized line-array modules, RR12 point-source array modules, QR24/110 modular high-output line-source columns, BC332 cardioid subwoofers and the new LR18B compact high output flyable subwoofer system, a companion to the LR18 compact mid-sized line array.
“Since last year’s successful US debut of the Alcons / ASA demonstrations at InfoComm in Orlando, the Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience has toured the globe, impressing trade show visitors with immersive live audio possibilities that they never knew existed,” says Alcons Audio co-founder Tom Back. “Las Vegas often bills itself the Live Entertainment Capital of the World, so it is the perfect location to demonstrate that live sound can be delivered in a remarkably inventive way, with exceptional quality and headroom, thanks to Alcons systems.”
