ISE 2019 provided a high profile showcase for its many brands, covering home theatre and display technologies to system control.
AudioControl offered up a range of high-performance home theatre products and, for the first time in Europe, there was a chance to see the new CM series of 70/100V range of amplifiers, designed for outdoor audio systems, with separate zones and for light commercial use. The AudioControl two-channel Rialto 400 amplifier was also on display, now equipped with an additional sensing input to offer voice control.
The Origin Acoustics stand was awash with new audio products. Its Marquee Cinema Collection of in-wall, in-ceiling and subwoofer, was a major launch at the show. The new 100V in-ceiling speakers, D61T and D81T, and Bollard landscape speakers were also on display. The latter feature an anodized aluminum finish sleeve, available in a choice of three colours, and a 6.5-inch subwoofer in the base.
Acoustic control specialist Artnovion used ISE to introduce its Atlantic Flow hybrid absorber/diffuser panels (pictured below), available in a selection of natural wood and acoustic fabric finishes. Also on show was the Alpha Screen, a designer solution to the common problem of sound wave reflection in rooms with glass sides. The Alpha Screen is ideal for environments such as offices and restaurants and ultra-modern homes.
