Creating a New Cinema Audio Solution

Abstract: With the advent of the Samsung Onyx Cinema LED screen, the audio system had to be re-assessed as the screen channels could not be mounted behind the screen.  This presentation will go through the joint development team in Harman/Samsung as well as product/system overview for the JBL sound system that was developed for the Onyx screen.  Innovation occurred in nearly every component of the audio system, from loudspeakers, horns, and highly advanced DSP.
