Trinnov, Procella & Kaleidescape join forces again for ISE 2019
Heading up to ISE 2019 Trinnov & procella pushes the boundaries of Immersive Audio once again. We asked Gerben Van Duyl – Director of Procella Audio to tell us a bit more about preparing the demo for ISE 2019
With the introduction of the Altitude 48ext you saw new doors opening for the future of immersive audio ?
When Trinnov announced the Altitude 48 Ext, we knew we had more toys to play with. So we redesigned our Procella Audio sound room for ISE 2019 to use as many channels, as many loudspeakers, as needed for a truly immersive, optimal cinematic audio experience. So this time it will be a 21.4.10 system, with some unusual but well-thought-out loudspeaker placements, as follows: Five screen channels! Not just Left, Center and Right, but two more speakers behind the screen: Inner-Left and Inner-Right. The use of five channels behind the screen is a very powerful feature, and this year you will be reminded why: it provides a rock-solid front sound stage with impeccable detail across the front. Of course, the perfect loudspeaker for this role is the THX PM3 certified center-piece of our line-up, the Procella P8! These five screen channels get their dedicated sub woofer to take care of their bass-managed bass extension, in the form of the venerable V18!
How about better balancing bed and arrays ?
Fourteen surrounds, two wides and ten overheads? Yes of course! Three of those overheads are Height LCR above the screen, being Procella P6, and then there is a central Voice of God (P5), with the rest of the P5 in an Atmos layout, two rows along the ceiling. All the 16 surrounds and wides are P6V, as we are aiming for power, detail, and immersive density.
Did you make some special accommodations for the low end ?
With that much intensity in the loudspeaker configuration, we need a V21 main sub woofer! Main LFE bass is going to be powerful and profound, powered by our new DA5000-DSP amplifier, supplying a brutal 2 x 2500 Watts into the two 21″ drivers. Two more sub woofers complete the system, being two Procella P15-FP subs, each with dual 15″ drivers. These will only be used to provide bass for the surrounds and Atmos channels, each powered by the DA2800-DSP amplifier, which is returning to our line-up.
ISE 2019 is going to be a memorable one, with Trinnov Audio and Procella Audio delivering extended, immersive home theater audio like never before.
