ISE 2018

 

Well, we’re finally getting around to updating you on yet another record-breaking ISE show! And by a consensus of visitors to our booth, once again the Procella/Trinnov combination of speakers, amplifiers and digital acoustical processing achieved world-class performance. Click here to see Chuck Back’s Rave Publications show video. Overall, the show was incredibly well attended, and we easily met our goals of meeting with distributors and dealers, prospective new dealers from across the globe. We had a constant stream of visitors queuing up, starting on day one, coming to hear our 11.4.6 immersive audio demo system.

With demo cuts ranging from Guardians of the Galaxy to Dunkirk, Gravity, Spiderman Homecoming and Wonder Woman, listeners heard a very natural sound with real cinema impact when it was called for (which was frequently!). Throughout the show, the crowds filled all 15 seats with many demos running with listeners standing in the back of the room.

Unlike past years, where we showcased P815s as the main speakers, we chose to present a more moderately priced system to demonstrate the consistently high level of Procella speakers at all price levels. We chose to go with P8s for the L/C/Rs (located above a solid screen), with P5Vs and P5s used for the surround and height channels. In the same custom-built 7.3 x 5 x 4m theatre as last year, the P8s and P5s were easily able to achieve the Procella Effect of incredibly powerful and dynamic immersive sound.

Anders created a unique multi-subwoofer configuration, using one V18, one P18, and two P15 subs. The V18 was located in the baffle wall and used exclusively for the LFE channel. The P18, also located in the baffle wall, was fed the redirected bass below 80 Hz from the left, center and right channels. One P15 was located on the right side wall, handling the low frequencies for just the right side surround and height channels, while the left side wall P15 was used just for the low frequency content of the left surround and height channels.

P8iW new

We showed for the very first time the P8iW high-output in-wall speaker and the very high-power DA08-DSP power amplifier. The P8iW was on a static display, while two DA08-DSPs were used to drive the V18 and P18 subwoofers. Interest in the P8iW is already high among dealers looking to design advanced immersive audio systems, with several projects already in the planning stage. The DA08DSP maximizes the performance of the awesome V18, P18, and V6 subwoofers by delivering double the power of the DA06-DSP. Look for the DA08-DSP in the late spring and the P8iW in late summer or the early fall.

 

DA08 new

 

 

 

 

The 11.4.6 Atmos/Auro-3D/DTS:X demo system consisted of:
• 3x P8 L/C/R channels
• 2x P5V wide channels (one left, one right)
• 4x P5V side surrounds (two left side, two right side)
• 2x P5V back surrounds (one left, one right)
• 6x P5 height channels (three left, three right in an Atmos configuration)
• 1x V18 Bass Engine subwoofer, driven by Procella DA08 power amp
• 1x P18 subwoofer, driven by one Procella DA08 power amp.
• 2x P15 subwoofers (one left side, one right side
• 3x Procella DA06DSP power amplifiers (for the L/C/R speakers)
• 2x Procella DA08DAP power amplifiers (one for the V18, one for the P18)
• 2x Procella DA06-DSP power amplifiers (one for each P15)
• Trinnov Altitude32 AL-1624 24-channel processor
• 2x Trinnov Amplitude8 power amplifiers (for all surround and height channels)
• Artnovion absorbers and diffusors for room treatment on all walls and ceiling
• Kaleidescape Strato server
• JVC DLA-Z1 4K HDR laser projector
• Screen Research solid projection screen
We’d like to thank our booth partners Trinnov Audio, Artnovion, Kaleidescape, JVC, Fibbr, and Screen Research. We’re already booked to be back next year with another reference-quality demo system. See you in Amsterdam next February!

Experience Procella at ISE: 5-U90

It’s a new year, and that means the ISE show in Amsterdam is just a couple of weeks away! Experience the Procella Effect in booth 5-U90, as we exhibit a full immersive audio theater with our partners Trinnov Audio and Artnovion.

Our custom-built theater will be outfitted with 21 loudspeakers, enabling us to demonstrate both 9.2.4 and 11.4.6 channel configurations. We’re using P8s as the main speakers to prove that full-range P815s are not necessary to achieve Procella excellence in small to medium size rooms! The P8s will be located above the screen, just as Procella cinema speakers are located in Nordic Cinema Group’s premium Scape™ commercial Atmos™ cinemas. P5Vs will be used as surrounds, with P5s as height channel speakers. And you’ll enjoy powerful, articulate bass with V18, P18, and P15 subwoofers. Our high channel count processing will be courtesy of the Trinnov Altitude32, and Artnovion is providing the acoustical design and treatment.

New Products! P8iW and DA-08DSP

P8iW

Two timely and exciting products will be seen for the first time at ISE – the P8iW in-wall speaker and the massively powerful DA08-DSP power amp.

Designed primarily for use as a height or surround channel speaker, the P8iW delivers the full performance of the classic P8 while gracefully integrating into any room’s decor. Its 1.5″ compression driver is mounted on a new 90 degree circular waveguide that is mounted at an angle of 15 degrees relative to the front baffle. This  enables the installer to direct the high frequency radiation towards the listening position, even when the speaker is mounted overhead as a height channel. With its 8 inch woofer, the speaker can reach 128 dB peak output!

The P8iW uses Procella’s wing-mounting system for easy and efficient installation. Its input terminals are on the removable front baffle that contains the drivers and crossovers, providing easy installation and service access. Both black and white fabric grilles are included. Delivery of the P8iW should be mid-2018.

DA-08

The DA-08DSP becomes the reference power amplifier for the V18, P18, and V6 subwoofers, with double the output power of the DA06-DSP. It delivers 1,200 Watts/channel into 8 ohms and 2,400 Watts/channel into 4 ohms. Its massive power supply ensures dynamic low-frequency output at even the highest playback levels. DSP presets are provided for all Procella speakers, just as with the DA05 and DA06. Expect the DA08-DSP to ship in the late spring.

If you didn’t make it to ISE 2017 this year, you missed perhaps the best Procella demo yet! Once again, the Procella and Trinnov combination delivered world-class immersive audio performance to critical listeners, over the four days of the show.

We carefully planned the system well in advance and conducted an off-site audio dress rehearsal with the partners in January. As a result, in our custom-built demo theatre, we achieved the Procella Effect: incredibly powerful and dynamic immersive sound, with visitors praising, among many other things, exceptional dialog intelligibility and a formidable low end. By the end of the first day, our booth had become a destination for show attendees, and we played to full houses with standing room only for virtually every demonstration.

ISE 2017 booth Procella Audio big succés

A week after the ISE 2017 it’s time to recap what has happened in Amsterdam at the RAI. It was one of our most successful shows so far at the ISE. We had ”as said by our visitors” the best demo, however this raises the bar for next year… (6-9 februari 2018) but we will definitely amaze you again next year! Thank you very much for sharing this all on Social Media. On the right the ”redesigned” P6V, comes now with 10×10 VESA mounting and a cover that completely covers the front so it will look much better in a home theater or living room environment.

Procella Audio World-Class 11.3.10 Atmos @ ISE

Atmos Elevated: 11.3.10 ISE Demo

Bringing together global leaders in their respective product categories, Procella and partners Trinnov Audio and Artnovion invite you to ISE to experience the show’s most advanced immersive audio system – our custom-designed 11.3.10 channel system, capable of Dolby Atmos®, Auro-3D®, and DTS:X® playback.

We’re going all out with the 11.3.10 channel configuration:

Start with the massive V18 dual-18 inch Bass Engine active subwoofer (137 dB!), making its debut as the main subwoofer, with P15s used as balancing subs. Baffle-wall mounted Procella P815 speakers will be used for the left, center and right channels, powered by Procella DA-06DSP power amplifiers. Three P8s, driven by Procella DA-05DSP amps, will be used for the high left, center, and right channels. Trinnov Amplitude8 power amps will drive the P6V wide channels, six P6 surrounds, and seven P5 height channels.

The high-channel count of this system (22 discrete decoded channels), is only possible through the use of the Trinnov Altitude32 surround processor, our processor of choice and the only consumer processor capable of rendering more than 12 discrete Atmos channels.

All of the exhibiting partners invested extra time to ensure the success of this year’s demo.

The purpose-built room was designed by one of our long-time partners and friends, acoustician Ingemar Ohlsson of Audio Data Lab in Stockholm. The room’s performance is enhanced and optimized by the engineering team of Artnovion, who designed and provided the room treatments. Gerard Brouwer of Home Cinema Projects (Procella’s Netherlands dealer) managed the project and supervised the room construction. Brilliant and razor-sharp 4K UHD images will be provided by SIM2’s incredible NERO4 projector.

New Products
After experiencing the demo, you’ll be able to see the full range of Procella products, and take in the newest models:
V18 Bass Engine Dual 18-inch V-Loaded Active Subwoofer
P15A Single 15-inch Active Subwoofer
P5V Slimline speaker
P5iW In-Wall

New Procella Products Update

The new generation of products shown at CEDIA Expo is now in production at the Procella factory. Here are the details on these exciting new products. For those of you that didn’t make it to CEDIA, they’ll be on display at the upcoming ISE show in February in Amsterdam.

P5V loudspeaker

p5-black

 

 

 

 

 

The P5 has been a huge success, yet there’s no question its bookshelf profile is more suitable for shelf or stand placement than for mounting on a wall. Enter the P5V – the slim and sexy version of the P5. Its softly sculptured enclosure is only 4.1 inches deep, and whether you mount it tall or wide, it looks sleekly at home next to both flat panels and projection screens. This is a Procella speaker you won’t want to hide behind a fabric wall. Its 80 degree circular waveguide means identical sound regardless of how the speaker is mounted.

P5iW in-wall

p5iw

 

 

 

Whether for main or for surround channels, the P5iW delivers full Procella performance while disappearing into the room decor. Its sonics are identical to the P5 and P5V, using the same drivers in an MDF back box enclosure. Both black and white fabric magnetic grilles are included to fit any environment. Installation is a breeze with Procella’s wing-mounting system. Its input terminals are on the removable front baffle that contains the drivers and crossovers for easy access and service. Like the other P5s, you can wall mount it either horizontally or vertically, and its 80 degree circular radiation pattern is ideal for ceiling mounts. The P5iW replaces the P6iW,which is now discontinued.

P15A 15-inch active subwoofer

p15a-white

 

 

 

 

 

Expanding the Procella subwoofer lineup in a slim, compact profile, the P15A has a single 15-inch woofer – the same pro audio driver with 3-inch voice coil found in the dual driver P15 subwoofer. Using a Procella-designed class-D 350 Watt power amplifier, it delivers 119 dB of output at 50 Hz. The P15A provides dealers and end users with a highly useful option, whether for small rooms or for larger theaters where multiple subwoofers are used to balance low frequencies throughout the space.

V18 Bass Engine subwoofer

v18-sub

 

 

 

 

The P18 has long been the standard for low frequency reproduction. But for some, even the P18 wasn’t enough! For them, we created the V18 Bass Engine. Producing 137 dB of continuous output and a peak output of 143 dB, this is truly the new flagship subwoofer. In a massive enclosure, Procella’s unique V-Loaded driver configuration produces coupling and compression loading between the drivers, resulting in lower distortion, improved transient response, and reduced cone excursion at high SPL. With extension to 18 Hz at high output levels, this is a true subsonic generating engine. Power is provided externally with Procella’s DA-06DSP power amplifier.
