Christie LA3C line array ceiling surround speaker

Christie in Cypress, Calif., is introducing the Christie LA3C line array ceiling surround and Christie LA3S line array surround speakers, which expand the company’s Christie Vive Audio cinema sound solution that was announced on July 17. Featuring ribbon driver technology combined with a parabolic line array design in a single compact cabinet, the additional speakers promise exceptionally even coverage throughout the auditorium.

As part of the Christie Vive Audio system, they help realize the potential of leading immersive audio technologies such as Dolby Atmos and Auro 3-D audio formats. Christie Vive Audio is the first audio system to be powered by Christie’s wall and ceiling surround speakers, which feature unique ribbon driver technology in a parabolic line array design, purposely crafted and built for the cinema environment. The complete Christie Vive Audio solution includes ceiling surrounds, wall surrounds, screen channel speakers, subwoofers, and Class-D amplifiers. The system is designed for traditional and premium large-format auditoriums, as well as post-production studios and screening rooms.

The Christie LA3C line array ceiling surround speaker and Christie LA3S line array surround speakers are premium solutions that also meet Christie’s goal of providing exhibitors with the highest quality cinema system at an attainable price point. Recognized for their exceptional timbre-matching, enhanced voice intelligibility and low distortion, the speakers’ parabolic line array design increases the optimal listening area up to four times that of the standard point source systems. The extremely low mass of the ribbon drivers allows them to respond very quickly to audio signals and eliminates the effects of high frequency breakup and power compression, resulting in the reproduction of the source material with exceptional clarity and accuracy.

Christie also announces the world’s first deployment of a complete Christie Vive Audio cinema sound system in an auditorium powered by Dolby Atmos, in Krikorian Premiere Theatres’ Buena Park Metroplex 18 in California.

“Krikorian Theatres are recognized for taking the lead in implementing the first and best technology available to ensure an unrivaled movie-viewing experience for their guests,” says Craig Sholder, vice president, Entertainment Solutions, Christie. “The combination of a complete Christie Vive Audio system and the award-winning Dolby Atmos audio format heralds a new standard in delivering lifelike, realistic cinema sound and continues Krikorian Theatres’ tradition of bringing the latest, cutting-edge technology to their facilities.”
