Well-known home cinema designer Anthony Grimani and inventor/acoustician Manny La Carrubba are launching a new company, called Grimani Systems (Booth 1041), and introducing the CinemaOne Audio Ensemble, a turnkey audio system for large-room home cinemas.
Although entrepreneur and audiophile David Steel also shares ownership of the company, the CinemaOne Audio Ensemble is the brainchild of Grimani and LaCarrubba. The system has been designed to deliver exceptional sound quality and coverage thanks to LaCarrubba’s breakthrough development of the Conic Section Array (CSA) waveguide, the loudspeaker’s driving technology. The CSA waveguide ensures that everyone in the room experiences the same superior sound, delivering virtually unlimited power and extraordinary musicality in one integrated architecture.
“I’ve been in the audio industry for over 30 years and have worked on literally hundreds of products. But it’s Manny compelling new technology that motivated the creation of Grimani Systems and the CinemaOne ensemble,” Grimani stated. “I am thrilled to step into this new venture thanks to the powerful platform of CSA.”
For integrators, CinemaOne is a turnkey solution that reduces as much as 70 percent of installation time. Simple and elegant in design, it blends seamlessly with private screening room architecture. Following installation, Grimani Systems’ experts will configure and calibrate onsite.
While an audio system for large-room home cinemas is Grimani System’s initial endeavor, it’s just the first entry in the company’s overall home entertainment vision. Grimani’s next product launch will be a high-end professional-grade projection package. The Grimani Systems Cinema One 4K Ultra High-Definition Video Package for private large-room theaters will launch in 2015.
An upgrade to Dolby Atmos will also be available later for the Cinema One Audio System in 2014.
