Klipsch is a brand we write about often because of its unique horn technology that we find in many high-end Home Cinemas, like the one we filmed in Madrid. Since their success with the legendary Klipschorn, patented in 1945, which revolutionized the way people listen to music, the company has been growing continuously thanks to the sales of hundreds of very high quality and prestigious products around the world for both cinemas and home cinemas, and today the company product range has broadened to include headphones, sound bars … but all based on the founder’s original philosophy to “channel live sound from the performer directly into the ears of listeners”.
At the recent CineEurope 2013 Event in Barcelona, we were offered an exceptional opportunity to experience first hand a Dolby Atmos demo in Soundub, a sound mixing studio that was the first one in Spain as well as the second one in Europe to implement this new multichannel audio format at the end of 2012.
The D-Box experience is always a pleasure, as we will never forget the first time over 12 years ago! At the recent CineEurope 2013, we were invited with a small group to assist at a demonstration in their incredibly comfortable cinema at the show with no more than twenty armchairs. Once inside, we were asked to adjust the level of the “feeling” our seat.
CineEurope 2013 has just closed it doors on another successful Trade Show in Barcelona, which completes over two decades of events since it was origin started in Belgium. The crowds are clearly not what we find at IFA or the CES, of course, as this show is targeted to the needs of the Movie Theater Industry, where over 1,500 cinema exhibition and distribution professionals from all over Europe, Middle East and Africa, meet in Barcelona, making CineEurope one of the key events of the year.
