Invision UK distributing VIBE Audio PICS speakers19 December 2011
Invision UK has been appointed to serve as exclusive distributor for VIBE Audio’s innovative PICS (Picture Integrated Cinema Speakers) range of wall-mounted loudspeakers.
British audio brand VIBE developed the PICS range for the custom market. Mounted behind a fully customisable picture frame, the PICS design ensures that speakers and cabling are fully concealed.
PICS is said to maintain audio integrity due to the inclusion of a high quality speaker in a perfectly measured, finely tuned wooden cabinet. Speakers are enclosed in an MDF cabinet that pressurises and reinforces the drivers.
Featuring an acoustically transparent and easily removable canvas onto which any image can be printed, PICS is designed to allow installers to integrate hi-fi and home cinema audio seamlessly into interiors. Installers can supply specific artwork for custom printed grilles, select from a range of stock images or provide their own grilles.
Each PICS speaker has three versatile mounting options for installation into any type of wall, either in-wall, on-wall or with a stand-off option. PICS can be set into the wall in the same way as an in-wall speaker, or can be wall-hung like a traditional picture frame using the supplied brackets.
The included PICS Frames attach to the speakers magnetically, holding custom printed acoustic canvas and speaker grills securely in place. The frames are supplied in matt white and can be removed for re-painting if required.
Mark Taylor, business manager at Invision UK, commented: “We are thrilled to have added VIBE Audio’s innovative PICS range to our loudspeaker roster of brands and products. The decorative and ‘stealth’ loudspeaker market has been looking for a more viable solution for a long time, and PICS ticks every box. It’s the most flexible in/on-wall and decorative loudspeaker solution yet and we’re delighted to be chosen as sole distributor.”
