How Subwoofers Work
As time goes on and the entertainment room is being used for more than just a movie viewing area, the furnishings and layouts have become more diversified to accommodate a more casual and interactive environment.
Exclusive features include ProGrip® Connector Technology which keeps the connector from slipping out, SureLength® Indicators which simply but usefully indicate the length of the cable right on the connector head which is invaluable for integrators.
Demand For Wireless High Resolution Home Theater Audio Sparks Growth in Wireless Speaker and Audio Association
The Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA®) Association, an industry group dedicated to bringing, high resolution, wireless, multi-channel audio products to the home theater market, continues its fast growth with the addition of six new members. According to Raiyska Iyer, Market Research Analyst for Futuresource Consulting, home audio represents an enormous opportunity for manufacturers and retailers with wireless speakers and soundbars growing at 181% and 81% annually. To date, wireless audio solutions have been limited to only a stereo experience, the key advantage of WiSA-compliant components is that it is the first solution to offer high-resolution audio from 2.0 to 7.4 channels. And, WiSA-compliant systems are fully interoperable, allowing the consumer the convenience and freedom-of-choice to mix and match components from different manufacturers. "The surge in membership and the adoption of WiSA-compliant products is a reflection of the Association's category leading wireless audio solution," said Tom Lee, president of the WiSA Association. "WiSA members are able to deliver what consumers want, a full multi-channel, wireless home theater experience. The interference-free, wireless high-resolution audio products are easy to set up and interoperate with other compliant CE devices like HDTVs, set-top-boxes, gaming devices and more."

With promotions displayed prominently in a visually- appealing, well-lit services board, more and more customers spend their time in line perusing service package offerings.
When the big studios and networks were in their heyday, the M&E (media &entertainment) industry was easy to find.
There were a lot of new, fresh and thought-provoking products at the show, which hopefully will help us stay ahead of the curve and make our work easier.
