First Fully Digital AES67 Audio-Over-IP Home Theater Demo at CEDIA Expo 2023

Seymour-Screen Excellence, StormAudio, Grimani Systems, and RowOne Seating collaborate on the demo.

Seymour-Screen Excellence, StormAudio, Grimani Systems, and RowOne unite to offer an 11.6.6 fully digital, networked, AES67 Audio-over-IP demonstration in Sound Room 10 during CEDIA Expo 2023. This presentation is a CEDIA Expo-first, harnessing the cutting-edge capabilities of networked Audio-over-IP technology, while bringing together the collective expertise and best practices from top industry brands. It promises to deliver not only an unparalleled demo, but the opportunity to learn and work with these leaders directly.

CEDIA Homem Theater Demo from Seymour Screens, Grimani Systems, Row One, and StormAudio

The demo highlights the launch of StormAudio’s new ISP Evo 32-channel AoIP surround sound preamp/processor — the first all-digital immersive audio processor to reach the CEDIA channel — networked to a Grimani Systems 16,800 watts, 11.6.6-channel active loudspeaker system. By creating a fully digital pathway from source-to processor-to the speaker system, this showcase sets a new benchmark in audio precision and clarity.

The key to the design is that in utilizing only Ethernet cable, a network switch, and speaker cable for its audio connections, this not only highlights the simplicity and efficiency of the setup, but eliminates common industry issues like ground-loop hum while allowing for advanced features such as remote setup, calibration, and monitoring.  According to Anthony Grimani, “After having worked on more than 1000 systems, this is the future of audio for theaters, media rooms, and commercial spaces.”

Maximizing both audio and video performance for the demo is Seymour-Screen Excellence’s Enlightor-Neo 4K HDR immersive film screen surface and Adjustable Ratio Theater (ART) immersive 4-way masking system. At 13.5 feet wide, this screen is designed to impart no coloration to the sound of the speakers behind it and is mated to a Barco Residential Njord Cinemascope 5K 3-Chip DLP projector, madVR Envy Extreme video processor, and high-performance TLD+ short throw lens.

Attendees of the demo will experience two luxurious and innovative seating designs from RowOne Seating, the 2023 CEPro 100 Bullet Brand recipient. Following home cinema best practices with respect to audio and video design, the demo will feature the company’s patent-pending, low-back, zero-clearance power incliner, the Calveri, across the front row, and the contemporary styling of the Cortes power recliner and power headrest across the second row.

Throughout Expo, industry experts Chris Seymour, Evan Zerby (Seymour-Screen Excellence); Olivier Thumerel, Gary Blouse, Matthew Trinklein (StormAudio); Anthony Grimani, Brett Bjorkquist (Grimani Systems), and Todd Girdis (RowOne) will be available to provide in-depth insights and engage with dealers, sales representatives, and any accompanying trades.
