Under-television home cinema audio a focus for LG in 2014
LG will be demonstrating a number of new audio products at CES in January, alongside its large-screened television. The sound bar and a SoundPlate all hope to declutter the living room of unnecessary home cinema audio equipment, while two wireless speakers offer various streaming audio modes that seemingly competes with Sonos for room-based music playback.
2D-to-3D movie conversion, split screen built-in
Epson has issued details of new projectors it is bringing out in the near future. The PowerLite Pro Cinema 6020UB, Home Cinema 5020UB/5020UBe, and 3020/3020e are all 3D-capable projectors that offer a full HD resolution, and also feature built-in 2D-to-3D conversion of movies and a split-screen mode allowing users to watch two different 2D sources simultaneously.
Max output of 127dB at 50Hz; dual 350 watt drivers
A Swedish audio firm, Procella, has turned to an Italian manufacturer to create their latest subwoofer aimed at large home cinemas, commercial cinemas and larger rooms (up to 3,000 cubic feet), the re-designed P15. The active subwoofer features dual 15-inch drivers individually powered by 350-watt amplifiers and 28bit/56 bit ADI Sigma DSP controls, for a frequency response well below 20Hz and a maximum output of 127 decibels at 50Hz.
