Visitors to CEDIA Expo 2023 are in for a treat. Seymour-Screen Excellence, StormAudio, Grimani Systems, and RowOne proudly are uniting to present an 11.6.6 fully digital, networked, AES67 Audio-over-IP demonstration.

Being hailed as a CEDIA Expo-first, the collaboration will showcase networked Audio-over-IP technology, while bringing together the collective expertise and best practices from top industry brands.

The demo highlights the launch of StormAudio’s new ISP Evo 32-channel AoIP surround sound preamp/processor, the first all-digital immersive audio processor to reach the CEDIA channel, networked to a Grimani Systems 16,800-watts, 11.6.6 channel active loudspeaker system.

Utilsing a fully digital pathway from source-to processor-to the speaker system,the design requires only Ethernet cable, a network switch, and speaker cable for its audio connections. According to Anthony Grimani, “After having worked on more than 1,000 systems, this is the future of audio for theatres, media rooms, and commercial spaces.”

Maximising video performance will be Seymour-Screen Excellence's Enlightor-Neo 4K HDR immersive film screen surface and Adjustable Ratio Theater (ART) immersive 4-way masking system.

At 13.5 feet wide, this screen is designed to impart no colouration to the sound of the speakers behind it and is mated to a Barco Residential Njord Cinemascope 5K 3-Chip DLP projector, madVR Envy Extreme video processor, and high-performance TLD+ short throw lens.

Attendees of the demo will also experience two innovative seating designs from RowOne Seating. The demo will feature the company’s patent pending low-back, zero-clearance power incliner, the Calveri, across the front row, and the Cortes power recliner and power headrest across the second row. This configuration is designed to minimise the impact front-row seating can often have on the second row.

Throughout Expo, industry experts Chris Seymour, Evan Zerby (Seymour-Screen Excellence); Olivier Thumerel, Gary Blouse, Matthew Trinklein (StormAudio); Anthony Grimani, Brett Bjorkquist (Grimani Systems), and Todd Girdis (RowOne) will be available to talk with attendees.
