Sam Cavitt and his team at Paradise Theater have completed the Masters level certification from Harman International to calibrate high-performance audio systems using ARCOS (Adaptive Room Correction and Optimization System). Paradise Theater is just one of four companies in the world to have achieved the Masters certification. ARCOS is an integrated software and hardware package that provides a new level of calibration accuracy for high performance audio systems.
Paradise Theater adds ARCOS calibration to its offering of high-performance theater design and acoustical consulting services. Calibration services will be available to system integrators and owners of high-performance systems around the world. With every completed calibration, Paradise Theater will provide a report providing specific details and commentary on the results of the calibration, providing insight into how the system’s performance was improved.
“The ARCOS system represents many years of extensive research and blind listening tests as well as solid science,” said Sam Cavitt, president of Paradise Theater. “After experiencing these calibrations by the Harman team on past Paradise Theaters we recognized the level of value we could provide by becoming Master ARCOS calibrators. We have often compared a Paradise Theater to a finely designed and crafted high performance vehicle; we now provide the “ultimate tune-up” to attain profound listening experiences.”
Paradise Theater offers integrators the opportunity to achieve both platinum- and gold-level room certifications from Harman by leveraging its suite of theater design services along with its Masters-level ARCOS calibration. Harman International offers a platinum-level certification only available to those rooms that are both designed and calibrated by a master level certified acoustic and calibrator. A gold-level certification is only available to those rooms which are calibrated by a master certified calibrator.
"We congratulate Paradise Theater on their successful completion of the Masters Certification Program,” stated Jim Garrett, director of marketing and product development for Harman Luxury Audio and Loudspeakers. “Engaging in our comprehensive training reaffirms Sam and his team's commitment to offering systems integrators and their clients with the highest level of service and support in design and acoustical services.”
