THE MAGIC OF CINEMA – Artcoustic Performance A6

Sound is an incredibly powerful storyteller, especially in cinema.

From the spine-chilling nuances which give you an involuntary shudder, to the deep rumble of bass which vibrates straight through you. This clear, dynamic, multi-dimensional sound is what fully connects us to the action, transforming ‘watching a movie’ into a truly immersive and magical experience, just the way the director intended.

The Performance A6 is the latest addition to the Artcoustic collection and is a true game changer – especially for larger cinema rooms where seating is positioned across multiple rows and more than one level.

To achieve the high sensitivity needed for a fully immersive cinema experience, Artcoustic use their line array technology to create a focused ‘beam’, projecting the sound directly at the listener.

The smaller size of the cabinet and adjustable angles allow each individual module to be laser aligned to different locations in the audience, ensuring you get the same incredible, dynamic and detailed sound regardless of where you are sitting. As Artcoustic say: There shouldn’t be any “cheap seats” in your cinema.

Artcoustic is a rare hybrid of Hi-Fi and Professional Audio technology, delivering award-winning speakers with dynamic, open and accurate sound.

A typical Hi-Fi speaker is designed using single tweeters together with mid and low frequency drive units, which work well within smaller spaces and at lower volumes, but lack the output needed for the high dynamics of today’s movie soundtracks.

Artcoustics unique array technology uses tweeters and mid frequency drive units like Hi-Fi, but we position them in multiples, enabling their speakers to achieve incredibly high sound pressure levels without the need for a compression horn.

This allows Artcoustic to produce systems for any room size, from the smallest snug to the largest auditorium. The Artcoustic loudspeakers are capable of incredible dynamic range, extremely low distortion and stunning accuracy. All housed within a slimline, lightweight cabinet, that’s easy to install and fits discreetly behind any cinema screen.

Most ambient light rejecting screen surfaces are manufactured to reflect off-axis ambient light away from the viewer and can hotspot severely with ultra-short throw projection. TecVision XH800X UST ALR breaks through that barrier and is optimized to balance ambient light rejection with the demands of ultra-short throw projection.

TecVision® XH800X UST ALR offers the ability to have a retractable ultra-short throw solution by using a tab-tensioning system. TecVision® XH800X UST ALR features a 0.8 gain premium ambient light rejecting surface. This surface can reject 57% of off-axis ambient light, allowing it to achieve high contrast while still being able to support extremely wide viewing angles. The viewing surface is Imaging Science Foundation (ISF™)-certified for color accuracy and 8K-ready to ensure optimal image performance at the highest resolution.

Sonance, pioneer of the landscape audio category, introduces a new, small-scale outdoor system at this year’s Integrated Systems Europe tradeshow in Amsterdam.

The new Sonance Patio Series system is designed for petite outdoor spaces demanding even, balanced audio coverage and great performance. Sonance stands firm in the belief that “speakers should blend in with the design of your space and be comfortable to listen to,” and their new Patio Series system of four satellite speakers and one in-ground subwoofer now gives integrators the ability to accomplish that in smaller spaces. The landscape lighting-like speaker housings and the textured brown finish allow Patio Series to be hidden amongst the natural elements of the landscape, blending perfectly into its surroundings.

The system features four staked satellite speakers, each with a 3 1/2″ (89mm) anodized aluminum cone driver and a Santoprene™ surround. The subwoofer contains an 8″ (203mm) dual voice coil, polypropylene cone & Santoprene™ surround for impressive output in intimate courtyard or patio settings. The system comes with four satellite speakers and one subwoofer and can be expanded to include eight satellite speakers and two subwoofers when using a Sonance SR 2-125 DSP amplifier.  A single Patio Series System (4 sats & 1 subwoofer) can cover up to 100 square meters (~1000 sqft.) 

The new system announcement comes just as the highly popular Sonarray solution plans its exit from the Sonance line up. “We continually challenge ourselves to deliver the best outdoor audio experience to our customers,” Product Manager, Josh Blanken said, “For years Sonarray has been a powerful solution for integrators looking to provide landscape audio systems for their customers at a high value price point.  With Patio Series replacing Sonarray, Integrators will now have the ability to provide class-leading performance and aesthetics, in much smaller spaces.” Sonance is showcasing the new outdoor system at the ISE show in Amsterdam with an active demonstration.

Sonance Patio Series is expected to begin shipping February 2020, and can be experienced live in the Sonance booth (1-N90) at ISE 2020 in Amsterdam.

Video Mount Products DVR-LB3 DVR/NVR Lockbox

Video Mount Products’ popular DVR-LB3 is a favorite among VMP’s  series of DVR/NVR lockboxes. The DVR-LB3 features all the security benefits of the others in the series, but its low-profile makes it perfect for today’s smaller DVRs and NVRs and for installations restricted to limited space requirements. The DVR-LB3 has been designed for 19-in. equipment racks or as a standalone lock box. It is 2- or 4-post mountable with adjusting rear flanges to accommodate a variety of rack depths. VMP has included a single fan, as well as a mounting location for a second fan should additional thermal management be required. Multiple vents with vent blockers for active or passive thermal management have also been incorporated.

Additional features of the VMP DVR-LB3 lockbox include:

  • Interior dimensions: 17.2in W x 21in D x 5in H
  • Rack mountable with a 3RU overall height
  • Interlocking lift-off lid
  • Key-locked hinged front door
  • Black static resistant powder coat finish

High-end electronics have become a staple in today’s security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs/NVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen without compromising remote control accessibility. VMP’s DVR-LB3 is built upon the principle of creating peace of mind for those who require DVRs and NVRs be installed in settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism, but at the same time allowing for the flexibility of a smaller housing solution.

VMP recently celebrated its 25th year as a leading provider of mounting solutions for the A/V, communication, and security industries.
