The CRS12GT/60 from Alcons Audio is a two-way passive-filtered loudspeaker, designed to meet all requirements of current and future digital-cinema surround-sound formats. Featuring Alcons’ patented pro-ribbon driver technology, the CRS12GT/60 combines exceptional clarity and intelligibility with an unusually high dynamic range and up to 90% less distortion than traditional cinema surround systems.

The CRS12GT/60 system consists of one RBN601 6” pro-ribbon driver for HF and a vented 12” mid-bass for LF reproduction.

VCL Sound Experience
VCL Sound Experience, manufacturer of the cinema speaker range branded as LuisWaSSmann, is launching two new products at CineEurope 2014.
With the new Dolby Atmos and Barco Auro multichannel sound systems in mind, VCL presents their new ceiling surround speakers, which include the mandatory directivity required by the systems’ manufacturers and the ease of installation provided by the Totalmount Support, plus the included laser pointer system.
VCL is also launching the new modular system LAT 2014, which represents the third generation of their line-array technology for cinemas, a legacy technology from the PA world which the company has been proudly manufacturing for several years now. This LAT 2014 modular system is specifically designed to deliver the same single timbre throughout every cinema speaker, be it the screen systems, side surrounds, conventional surrounds or ceiling surrounds. The module, consisting of a small 6" speaker and an isofasic horn plus one 1" professional compression driver, is duplicated as many times as required to configure the different systems: as a treble-medium screen system with either six or 12 units, as a side surround with six units, as a conventional surround with two units, or as a ceiling surround with three units.
