Connected Distribution at Essential Install Live South
Sandown Park, Esher, 6-7 July 2016
Connected Distribution will use the Essential Install Live Show to unveil the latest from its portfolio of class leading multi-room products from Atlantic Technology, Cabasse, Parasound, Pulse-Eight and Russound.
Atlantic Technology is one of the leading producers of high performance loudspeakers specifically designed for use in home theatres. On display will be three new products, including the IC-6 OBA speaker, developed for use with Dolby Atmos®, Auro 3D® and DTS:X® surround systems. For THX certified theatres, Atlantic has introduced the IW-155 LCR, which, with its THX Ultra 2 certification and compact form factor, enables top-level performance in smaller environments to be achieved. The LCR3 is a compact wall mounted speaker for use horizontally or vertically in surround systems that packs a punch far greater than its size would suggest .
Cabasse is one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of loudspeakers and streaming products, with over 60 years experience at the forefront of technical and acoustic innovation, perfecting the design of point source coaxial drive units and digital signal processing. Connected Distribution will be demonstrating the Stream AMP and Surf loudspeakers – a compact all in one audio system that allows access to all the major streaming services and also functions as a multi-room audio system. On display will be a selection of the company’s custom installation speakers, including the three-way coaxial Minorca IW and examples of Cabasse’s famous spherical loudspeakers, the Eole 3 and iO2.
Bringing the American muscle to the show is the Parasound range of high performance electronics – the choice of the major movie production studios. The San Francisco company manufactures a comprehensive range of preamplifiers, power amps, DACs, multi-channel and multi-zone amps for custom installation use. Connected Distribution will be focusing the attention on the new range of Zonemaster amplifiers which offer two, four, six or 12 channels of high quality amplification, perfect for the custom installer.
Pulse-Eight, UK based manufacturer of HD video products, will be demonstrating the new neo:4 Professional HD matrix switcher with its HDCP2.2, HDMI2.0a and Ultra HD Premium compatibility for use with HDR sources and TVs. Exclusive to Pulse-Eight is the intelligent use of CEC (Consumer Electronics Control), inherent within modern HDMI equipped products for selection, routing and control of connected sources using just the standard TV remote. The rest of the comprehensive Pulse-Eight range will also be on display.
Russound is constantly innovating and this year has introduced a number of streaming products into its range of class-leading distributed audio solutions. The top-of-the-range MCA-88X, with built-in streamer, will be joined by the recently released XSource single streamer device - the perfect add on for legacy systems or as a streaming module for new installations. And the show will feature the UK debut of the XZone4 four-stream, four-zone audio system, a complete streaming media solution that gives Russound installers a single-box package that is easy to install via a simple browser based configuration, using a smartphone, tablet or laptop.
Mike Bonnette, product director for Connected Distribution, says, “This year at Essential Install Live we couldn’t be more excited than to be able to introduce these fantastic new products from our core suppliers. All the brands have superb worldwide reputations and will provide the perfect solutions for the custom installers visiting the show.” He concludes, “We’ll be on hand throughout the two days to introduce visitors to the products, explain the technologies and unique attributes and help installers specify the right products for their customers’ needs. We look forward to meeting many existing and new clients. Plus, it’s the first chance to show off our new branding in a bigger scale to the world and we’re really pleased to be able to do this at Essential Install Live.”
