Triad surround speaker makes presence felt for Dolby Atmos5 January 2015
A home theatre speaker developed to help deliver multi-dimensional sound with Dolby Atmos is being showcased at ISE 2015. Triad’s Bronze LR-H is an in-room loudspeaker that utilises a traditional D’Appolito design. This comprises of two front-firing 5.5in organic-fibre cone drivers with a 1in fabric dome neodymium tweeter located in between.
Integrated into the enclosure is a Dolby Atmos-enabled module which consists of an up-firing top driver array containing four proprietary 2in full-range neodymium drivers that aim sound towards the ceiling.
When mated to Triad Bronze Centre Channel, Surrounds and DSP Subwoofer, the InRoom Bronze LR-H can be used for left and right front and left and right rear surrounds of a Dolby Atmos home theatre system.
The loudspeaker will be available in a wide variety of colours and finishes, including the option to be custom paint-matched or veneered to match the décor of the room.
Larry Pexton, Triad Speakers president and CEDIA chairman, said: “At Triad, we are very proud of our role in helping Dolby develop the standards for Dolby Atmos enabled loudspeakers. Dolby used Triad design and development services to prototype the upward firing Dolby Atmos enabled speakers and supplied our prototypes to its industry partners who used them to evaluate electronic components licensed under the Dolby Atmos programme.”
