Invision is delighted to announce that Trinnov Audio’s Altitude32 processor has been installed as the hub of the Reference Cinema Home Theatre in CEDIA’s new headquarters in Indiana.
Widely acknowledged as the leader in immersive sound for home theatres, the Altitude32 has the most advanced and powerful platform available and is one of the stars of Invision’s hand-picked portfolio of premium products. Uniquely capable of rendering 32 channels of Dolby Atmos (and soon to offer 30 channels of DTS:X Pro), the Altitude32 processor features best-in-class Trinnov Optimizer speaker/room correction, patented Remapping technology (allowing spatially accurate playback of all three immersive formats from a single speaker layout), and the ability to provide systems with up to 48 and 64 channels when used with an additional Altitude48 processor.
The Reference Cinema Home Theatre was designed and constructed by former CEDIA chairman Dennis Erskine and the Erskine Group. The room has an optimal acoustic environment with a high degree of acoustical isolation to offer a maximum dynamic range and to prevent distracting sound from reaching the office workspaces elsewhere in the building.
The 11.4.8 channel configuration features a total of 30 channels of processing and amplification. The L/C/R loudspeakers are bi-amplified, and each of the four dual 18- inch driver sub woofers has a dedicated (and separately calibrated) channel powering each individual subwoofer driver.
Multiple manufacturers provided equipment for the CEDIA theatre. In addition to the Trinnov Altitude32 processor, the system utilizes 23 Procella loudspeakers, a Barco Loki projector and a 206-inch-wide Stewart Filmscreen projection screen. A Kaleidescape Strato is the media source, with Lutron Ketra lighting and control by Crestron.
