Following a highly successful debut at the 2015 CEDIA home technology show, Alcons Audio returns in 2016, again with the popular Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience.


One of the premier showcases for the North American home technology industry, CEDIA takes place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas from 15th-17th September. The show is the ideal platform for Alcons to showcase its high-end, C-series home cinema systems, which it will be doing to maximum effect in Arts District 4 (High Performance Audio).

A joint collaboration between Alcons, Barco Residential, Dreamscreen and Trinnov, the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience is the perfect way for CEDIA visitors to experience the company's ability to deliver Hi-Fi sound at concert sound pressure levels in any size application.

The audio system, co-designed by residential integrator Cineramax of Miami, FL., is set-up as a 9.1.8 channel immersive surround configuration, comprising three Alcons Cinema Series CR3 Screen System three-way, pro-ribbon systems as L-C-R screen channels, plus fourteen CRMS pro-ribbon surround systems for the top, side, rear and overhead surrounds. Two ultra-slim 21" CB211 subwoofers will be used as LF extensions.

The system is driven by 24 channels of Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controllers, with ‘lossless' digital feed of an AES3 96kHz signal by a Trinnov Altitude 32 processor. This also connects the media player with a Barco Athena DCI projector with up to 4500 lumens output, projecting on DreamScreen/ScreenAcoustics Ultra-HD acoustically-transparent screen fabric.

The Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience was a star of last year's CEDIA, as well as the 2016 Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) show in Amsterdam. At both events, numerous visitors and trade media described it as the ‘best in show'.

"It's the most incredible home theater demonstration that I've ever experienced, including my own reference systems," noted Gary Reber, editor of Widescreen Review magazine, after experiencing the Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience at CEDIA 2015. "This is the best of it. Out of all the shows, I've never seen a system like this."

"Prosumer residential clients are looking for the same quality equipment as the professionals, with exceptional Hi-Fi sound," says Alcons co-founder Tom Back.
"As the only manufacturer able to combine Hi-Fi sound with pro-grade SPL outputs Alcons, with its multiple-patented pro-ribbon transducer technology, is unique in being able to deliver what this market demands."

He continues, "The residential market is an increasingly important part of our business. This has followed the success we have experienced in the premium cinema market, in high-end screening rooms and post-production studios like Walt Disney, Universal, Lucasfilm, or recently Google/YouTube and Eikon group. We are very pleased with how popular the C-series is proving for our domestic customer base."

"After last year's success at CEDIA, we are looking forward to again showing what is possible in home theater audio," says Alcons North American Sales manager David Rahn. "The best way to demonstrate the quality of Alcons systems is to let people experience it with their own ears and we are looking forward to wowing CEDIA visitors again!"

Alcons Pro-Ribbon Immersive Experience is located in High Performance Room 4, Arts District (Barco Residential / Alcons Audio).
