It was a good execution but the value proposition leaves a bit to be desired for the performance.
The room did look pretty bad with the panels on the wall.
I agree with you.
I was anticipating a stellar performance from the Triad booth especially with all of the high priced engineering of the room. I was disappointed with it's performance and with 12 x 12" subs, you would expect that room to rock!
The Cineramax/CINEPRO/SMX room had an outstanding picture (far better than any other) with the nicest AT Screen I have seen. The depth effects was clearly a feature that made you say WOW! Kudos to Peter!
I was never a fan of AT screens but SMX has changed my mind! Truly an oustanding screen that adds the Movie experience.
Being an Audiophile at heart It is the sound that wrapped up and sealed the deal! The sound was so clean, detailed and realistic it had me clenching my fists and moving in my seat. I was just as excited as I was watching my first movie in surround sound many, many years ago. I believe that room only had two subs and you felt impacts of the Hulk like he was actually at CEDIA. In my opinion it was the most impressive, engaging and musical performance I have ever experienced. They played a clip of a female vocalist which I would swear was in the room with me...musical and uncolored. The next clip..."The Hulk"..was oustanding playing at levels that truly brought the HULK to Life....SCARY! It was loud but crystal clear. I never experienced any distortion, compression or ringing in my ears. In two other demos I experienced ringing in my ears after leaving the demo.
Peter great job....you really lived up to all of you TALK! I now take you more serious
