K-array For Samsung’s Luxury LED For Home Cinema
K-array announces its partnership with Samsung Italy, Trinnov and Vismara Designs for the new “Luxury LED for Home” project, a collaboration dedicated to high-end home cinema that leverages the innovation and technological expertise of the Korean electronics powerhouse, the impeccable Italian design of luxury furniture producers, Vismara and the unique audio solutions of K-array, together with Trinnov immersive audio systems.
Luxury LED for Home is a pre-packaged home cinema that targets consumers who are looking for a unique and memorable entertainment experience, designed with top quality materials, with Samsung contributing its latest IF Series screens that are available in 109” and 130” FHD format and 219” and 260” UHD format, and Vismara adding its elegant, theater-style seating and custom-made sound proofing panels.
Delivering the cinema’s high-end audio technology is K-array with Trinnov’s A/V processors. With this unprecedented combination, the Luxury LED for Home offers a new approach to surround sound by addressing the audience at the very center of an immersive sound field. The incredibly discreet and elegantly designed K-array loudspeakers are positioned all around the room including the ceiling. Combined with the Trinnov processor which optimizes the music track, movie dialog and sound effects to provide spectacular sound, this immersive 3D audio not only provides high-quality sound performance but renders watching any kind of A/V content a true sensorial experience.
“We are honored to collaborate with Samsung on such an exclusive project. Our advanced line array technology integrates seamlessly with the other innovative and sophisticated components,” says Stefano Zaccaria Global VP Sales & Marketing of K-array.
To meet the project’s design challenges of limited real estate for loudspeakers, K-array employed a sound system comprised of the Vyper-KV52 loudspeakers. The ultra-flat, 40mm–deep (1.6") line array loudspeakers are distributed on both sides of the massive display as Left and Right main sources. Its innovative Pure Array Technology ensures complete coverage of every row of the theater seating with a consistent and powerful sound field without disrupting the visual layout and room design.
Thanks to its compact size and outstanding performance, the Vyper-KV52 also makes it possible to reconstruct the Central audio channel with just a pair of horizontal Vyper-KV52 loudspeakers placed at the top and at the bottom of the display. The configuration allows the audience to perceive the sound coming from the very center of the scene.
The 3D immersivity of the sound field is guaranteed by an additional eight full-range Domino-KF26 loudspeakers with four dedicated to managing the sound field on the horizontal plane in a 360° around the audience while the other four Domino-KF26 loudspeakers are installed on the ceiling, providing elevation and spatiality to the sound.
“LED displays is a growing trend in commercial cinemas and high-end home theaters. This new technology brings many visual benefits but also audio challenges, especially for dialog reproduction which is usually delivered by a dedicated center speaker behind an acoustically transparent screen. We are pleased to leverage our technologies and unique expertise in sound field reproduction together with K-array to help Samsung achieve the best possible sonic performance in this truly unique space” says Arnaud Laborie, co-founder, and CEO of Trinnov Audio.
The cinema designed for the home has been reproduced inside the Smart Home of the Samsung District in Milan and will be available for consumers who wish to have a premium experience thanks to Samsung Technology, Vismara’s Italian Design, K-array Sound Systems, Trinnov Speaker Optimizer Technology and the partners providing contents: Sky Q, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Kaleidescape.
