Next Event October 20th


The October meeting of the AES-LA section will be a field trip to the Krikorian Buena Park MetroPlex 18, where we will be treated to a demonstration of the Dolby Atmos Cinema Sound Format played back over a Christie Vive cinema audio system. Representatives from Christie will be on hand to explain the differences between the Vive speaker system and other cinema sound systems currently available.
The Vive speaker systems were designed specifically for cinemas, using ribbon driver technology in a line array design rather than the usual cone/horn combination speaker system. The Vive speaker system has a wide frequency response (hitting 20 kHz with ease across all channels, including surround speakers), low distortion, very fast transient response without the traditional power compression, and an extended high frequency compared to cone drivers. All of this translates to an extremely even coverage, high RMS peak SPLs, articulate voice intelligibility and a controlled dispersion pattern.
Representatives from Dolby Laboratories will be on hand as well, to explain more about the Dolby Atmos cinema sound format.  Dolby Atmos is an immersive sound format utilizing both 9.1 channel beds and real-time rendering of audio objects in 3-D space.
