HIGH DEFINITION CINEMA SYSTEMS

rigoletto1.jpg
Our range of sound systems for cinema installations cover all sizes of auditoriums!
From our smallest 2-way systems to the largest, 4-way horn-loaded system 
with dedicated drivers for each individual frequency range: LF, MF, HF & VHF
From small 40 seats theatres to the largest screens with over 800 seats

All our cinema sound systems are developed and designed with decades of gathered know-how, using the very latest in computerized 3D simulation combined with endless hours of testing and close colaboration with installers and cinema owners.

We only use high quality components from renowned European manufacturers,
ensuring the very best quality, this is easily heard when comparing our systems with our competitors. 
''Designed, developed, manufactured and assembled in Sweden,
guarantee a cinema experience rivalled by none.''

PROPHON has been designing, developing and manufacturing sound systems 
for cinemas since the 70´s, 
and we have a vast list of references.

We have come to dominate our domestic, and scandinavian market, 
due to high quality, resonable prices and efficient support to our installers and cinema owners.
Our latest inovations cover sound systems for the Digital Era, 3D movies and atmos.
- High definition speakers, 
- 96kHz digital processors 
- the latest in amplification, with third generation switched-mode amplifiers,
  AES/EBU input, on-board DSP processing and class-H amplifiers
 
AMPLIFIERS AND DSP PROCESSORS

The XD range of modular cinema speakers
 
Can be installed either conventionally, stacked behind the screen, or installed above the screen, using the built-in flightware, with numerous advantages in comparison to behind the screen installations.
3-way and 4-way systems are avaliable, where the 4-way system uses an unique coaxial 2-way compression driver, covering 600Hz to 19kHz, enabling most speach to be reproduced from the same vertical and horisontal position, which greatly improves separation of sound and coherency.

Installing the speakers above the screen, instead of conventiomally behind the screen
has many advantages:
• No screen reflection.
• The speakers do not have to project the sound through the screen, affecting the frequency responce, dispersion and distortion.
• Screens without ''holes'' have a better reflectivity, resulting in a better visual experience.
• The distance to all seats are more even, resulting in less SPL difference between the rows.
• in multi-arenas, where live opera and sports-event is streamed, and the fascility is used for events and conserts, this is the only way to do it, all our systems are pre-programmed in our cinema processor, with different presets for different events, cinema, consert, speach, etc.



LINE ARRAY IN CINEMAS? A NEW APPROACH, OR ARE THE OLD WAYS BETTER?
theatre.jpgIn the last couple of years, Line array systems (also known as line source) have found it´s way into the cinema theatres, with advantages that eliminates many of the regular "stacked-behind-the-screen-speakers" problems such as
• A more even SPL, where all seats have practically the same SPL.
• Controled dispersion over the whole frequency range, not only the HF.
• -3dB loss instead of -6 dB loss for each doubling of distance, 
• Each array module is deticated to handle a section of seats, and can be individually programmed and tuned to best collaborate with it´s siblings, 
taking care of all other seats, thus every seat has, in its own way, it´s own dedicated sound system.

We have designed line array systems for over 10 years in our other product branches such as live performance conserts, large night-club installations, multi-arenas and for the rental industry, so we had a huge advantage when we designed the CLAM-system (Cinema Line Array Module) we simpy used our vast knowledge and experience and developed a line array system for large cinema installations, again revolutionaring the cinema industry.
The CLAM.-system is a modular array system where each module is part of a line source, but also has it designated dispersion target. The CLAM system is mainly thought to be used for  large theatres, or theatres with balcony.

Since each Cinema Line Array Module is designed to handle a fixed amount of rows,
 the result is astounding. 
A large cinema theatre will have a SPL vs dispersion (Sound Preasure Level versus dispersion) that will be as close to perfect as possible (see picture above)
This technology has been around for over 15 years in other sound system reinforcements, but have not been appliable to the cinema industry, until now!
