InfoComm 2013: Alcons returns

Attending InfoComm for the second time in its existence, Alcons Audio USA is showing a selection of point source, line-source and line-array pro-ribbon sound solutions from the Sound Designer’s Toolbox.

Taking stage in their final production guise are the Sentinel amplified loudspeaker controllers, with 4-in/4-out, 192kHz AES/EBU inputs, Linux-based processor control, 10kW amp stages, full colour touch screen control and SIS dynamic cable compensation.

The QR24 pro-ribbon line-source column is also on show. This modular two-way column-array loudspeaker is to be used in acoustically challenging rooms, delivering a full-range, high SPL HiFi sound quality without the necessity of DSP-based beam-steering.

A premiere for the US market is the presence of the LR16 compact pro-ribbon line-array (pictured), which was introduced and demonstrated at a special off-site concert on Wednesday night.
