SPACE by CODA combines advanced AV technology with art to create a seamless audio-visual experience that is scalable and adaptable to any environment — and where the mechanics of what is a concert-grade audio experience are rendered completely invisible.
What exactly is SPACE?
SPACE by CODA integrates high-end, immersive 3D audio, a 4K projector screen, ambient lighting, and advanced acoustical treatment with the art or projection of your choice into a united system solution to transform spaces with audio. The result is the SPACE Panel.
At just 70mm deep, SPACE Panels can offer sound quality and performance surpassing that of conventionally designed (cabinet) loudspeakers, according to the manufacturer. This driver-equipped canvas can transform spaces to feature invisible audio, enabling high-quality, full-range sound in previously limitative environments. The entire sonic spectrum is covered with power and quality; unique “instafit” magnetic waveguides native to the SPACE audio modules facilitate production of directable sound with capability for immersive audio — all from within the panel.
Sound diffusors and acoustic treatments may be interleaved between loudspeaker modules for better control over sound reverberation in the room. Optional sensor-controlled sub-bass modules can be deployed to deliver even lower frequencies to concert sound proportions. Matching CODA LINUS DSP amplifiers complete the package. The addition of the SPACE Hub processor opens up the possibility for true 3D immersive audio.
The loudspeaker modules and diffusor/acoustic panels are arranged and connected like building blocks — and then completely hidden behind an acoustically transparent 4K projector screen — or a SPACE Art high-resolution digital canvas print.
SPACE Panels can be arranged in any ratio, size, or custom orientation to create a modern, borderless panel that will enhance any environment. They can even be mounted on the ceiling.
Full LED surround lighting options are available in warm white or RGB with DMX control.
Inside the Frame
The driving force behind SPACE by CODA are the three ultra-flat immersive loudspeaker modules — M1, M2, and M4 — which allow each screen to be built in 600mm increments.
- M1 – 600 x 600 x 70mm – up to 10m distance
- M2 – 1200 x 600 x 70mm / Double size, Double SPL (+6 dB) – up to 18m distance
- M4 – 1200 x 1200 x 70mm / 4xSize, 4xSPL (+12 dB) – up to 25m distance
All loudspeaker modules include 10-inch passive radiators for LF, 6.5-inch MF drivers, and 1.75-inch HF drivers with “instafit” interchangeable waveguides for optimum directivity control. Each module achieves a frequency response range from 45 Hz to 21 KHz, with a maximum SPL of 121 dB (A weighted) for the M1 module and up to 137 dB SPL (A weighted) for the M4. The MF/HF sections are rotatable; this enables both horizontal and vertical plane steering, optimizing SPACE for the desired coverage area. As with all CODA loudspeaker systems, these loudspeaker modules are phase linear.
Identically standardized Absorber Modules (AB1, AB2, and AB4) have been designed to interleave perfectly between loudspeaker modules in a SPACE Panel or function as standalone SPACE Art, ensuring balanced and non-saturating system configurations can be achieved in any venue.
Diffusor panels are also available within SPACE Panels for reducing the build-up of standing waves. The single format D1 size is most handy in applications where room echoes require sympathetic attenuation with minimal compromise on sound energy. While the AB panels will deaden the sound of a room, D panels will provide a livelier yet still controlled sound.
