Title: Screen Acoustics @ CEDIA 2018 summary
Post by: lygren on September 13, 2018, 09:21:46 AM
So, CEDIA is over, a very good show, we had the new MotoMask PRO in a 16:9 native version on display alongside the new TextileShield version of the UltraWeave V6 in the Alcons Audio booth, whereas Alcons also won the AVSforum.com Best of CEDIA award for best demo.

Some pics!

Quite massive in size, even for this 158», but proper packaging is required to protect this rugged frame properly...

We’re painting the custom stand in matte black...

Parts...

Connecting the ‘dots’

Inner and outer frame is assembled separately.

Connecting the inner and outer frame.

Connecting the divided masking roller. All long sides as well as the masking roller is divided to lower shipping costs.

Connecting the masking roller, made out of a double set of aluminum tubes for maximum stability.

Attaching the masking fabric.


(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180913/338becff7dabc6e61b7adf1ae5ede730.jpg)
Inserting the masking roller. The masking system can also be inserted retrospectively, i.e. you can purchase the frame and fabric first and later on the masking system. This modular system also makes servicing (if ever needed) much easier than for a numbe of other systems.

Vertical stiffeners installed. These can be moved to fit the location of the speakers.

Custom ‘free standing’ stand is attached.

Ready for action!

Cinescope mode.

Good to go, cinescope mode!

Beethoven in 16:9, shot in 4K (HDR) and native Atmos, sounds and looks magnificent!

In what we’d call ‘good company’...

Alcons received the ‘best demo’ award from the very nice folks at AVS, well deserved, they have worked hard at improving the demos every year! We feel quite fortunate to be able to take part in this fairytale to say the least!

Alcons sentinel processor amps


(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180913/cb1a1cdb7b8290bcf7c71758d86f6118.jpg)
Storm Audio 32ch AES capable pre-pro (the Sentinels has AES inputs too, securing a full digital signal path).


(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180913/2b2bd424f2b80e9ee262d5b90757db1a.jpg)
Alcons CRMS MKII’s were used as LCR’s.


(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180913/d0aa2ee9551e6bd0681d430bd9a0dd71.jpg)
1D QRD based diffusors were used to try to ‘stir up’ the ambience somewhat, but the room was quite nice, finally providing Alcons with some pressurised room gain which was quite effectful in combination with the new - single digital frequency response capable - long excursion subs...

Here´s a short video of me trying to pitch the UltraWeave. Sorry for the stuttering, being Norwegian means I need to translate everything "on the fly", and at times the "computer" does not work as efficiently as I´d like...  At least some points are made as to what we are bringing to the table!

Very nice room. Enjoyed the sound and the picture on the screen. Everybody needs to see this fabric up close. Then you would see why the image looks so good on it.

For CEDIA, a stand had to be constructed to support the screen, but for home use, the system can be installed on a wall, using the supplied mounting clips. See attached installation manual.
