CEA Line Shows Sneak Peek
A look into the exhibit hall at the annual New York City exhibition:
Audio Design Associates (ADA)
Audio Design Associates (ADA) is displaying the Cinema Reference Mach IV advanced home cinema processor ($40,000). It features HDMI 1.4 (3D) A/V switching and 16 channels of the company’s TEQ room correction and remapping using Trinnov room-correction technology.
At CEA LineShows, ADA is teaming up with BitWise Controls, D-Box Technologies, Digital Projection International (DPI), Kaleidescape, Leon Speakers and Stewart Filmscreen to create a $250,000 home cinema experience. In that room, the Cinema Reference Mach IV, along with ADA’s line of power amplifiers, will be driving a Leon speakers multi-channel speaker array. Using ADA’s TEQ room correction that features Trinnov technology, the Cinema Reference Mach IV will essentially make the room “disappear” acoustically.
Atlantic Technology will demonstrate PowerBar PB 235, the world’s first sound bar that is “subwoofer-optional,” and based on its patented HPAS technology. Most soundbars have little or no output below 100 Hz, essentially mandating the use of bulky external subwoofers. By comparison, the PB 235 delivers strong output down into the mid 40s, with low distortion and dialogue clarity. As exclusive licensor of this technology, Atlantic designs the complex HPAS enclosures for itself and other brands. Atlantic will also demonstrate the AT-2 HPAS bookshelf speaker, and show other products on static display.
BitWise Controls, a made-in-the-USA home automation company, is the automated control behind a central demo room this year at CEA LineShows. With its fully customizable GUI interface working through the iPad, BitWise is partnering with the following companies: Audio Design Associates (ADA), D-BOX, Digital Projection International (DPI), Kaleidescape, Leon Speakers and Stewart Filmscreen.
The processor doing all the work is the BC1 (shown), a powerful automation controller that picks up where the BitWise BC4X1 Pro leaves off. With event scheduling based on the built-in astronomical clock, a powerful scripting engine, and plenty of additional device control ports, the BC1 packs enough horsepower to be the central control processor for any residential or commercial control system.
