PMC will use the ISE Show in Barcelona to demonstrate its ci series loudspeakers to the show visitors, exposing them to the speakers used as the reference standard in Dolby Atmos mixing studios across the world, and highlighting the audio quality that is possible in residential cinema installations.
PMC slimline monitors feature in recording, mixing and mastering studios across the world and are the benchmark speakers for Dolby Atmos mix suites at such places as Dolby London, Capitol LA and Dean Street London, says the maker. Emmy Award winning PMC’s close involvement with the movie industry goes back to 1991 when it started designing the speakers that are used by the major studios to create the film soundtracks.
Today the ci series is used for both movie and music Atmos mixing, with works by some highly acclaimed artists from many different genres, including Carole King, xPropaganda, Swindle, Seal and Miles Davis, to name but a few, have been re-mixed into Dolby Atmos using the PMC ci series.
For the CI industry, the ability to specify exactly the same speakers used by the movie makers is the only way to offer customers the same stunning dynamics and awe-inspiring realism experienced in the leading studios says the company.
Like all PMC speakers, the six ci series models feature the company’s proprietary ATL bass loading technology and Laminair air flow control for ultra-low distortion and high-resolution playback. All six models are designed with a shallow depth for on-wall mounting and the ci30, ci45, ci65 and ci90slim may also be used in-wall. This gives the installer greater mounting flexibility, enabling them to enjoy a truly audiophile level experience from a highly discreet system.
The largest model in the range, the on-wall ci140, also uses the latest iteration of PMC’s dome midrange drive unit for strong midrange clarity. This all new 50mm (2in) dome features n-compass technology – a new dispersion flange for a flat frequency response and phenomenal off-axis performance.
Partnering the ci140 is the ci140sub, with the same four bass drive units operating within the ATL to reproduce additional low frequency energy, a strong proposition for home theatre installations and full frequency music reproduction in high end audio and studio situations.
Looking forward to the ISE show, PMC’s CEO Jeff Willcocks says, “The ci series has been finding fans around the world in the custom installation sector thanks to its ease of installation, flexibility of mounting options and the renowned PMC sound quality.” He adds “We are delighted to be able to demonstrate a fully-fledged Atmos cinema experience at ISE, which will enable custom installers to appreciate why specifying them for their residential customers will give the very same sound experience as the people who make the movies and music hear in the studio.”
