A DAY IN THE LIFE: DIRAC TIME LAPSE VIDEO

A short video showing our Palais De Cinema Room going through the DIRAC room correction process.

A couple of weeks ago we brought you a guide to the room dynamics and speaker set up in one of our "day in the life blogs" (click for blog)

Today we have folllowed this up with a fantastic time lapse video of one of our experts setting up our own demonstration room using the DIRAC technology.

Presently this demonstration room is set up with the Arcam AVR850, it is also has the full Dolby Atmos 7.2.2 capability. The Art Noveau room started life as a simple unused room above the shop. This room has become more than just a screen and speakers with the innovation of acoustic design and the remit of creating a cinema with its own acoustic identity.

A lot of AV amplifiers offer ‘room correction’ functionality, often this just involves setting the volume levels and distances for individual surround sound speakers.  This works well and can sound good when done correctly, however if you want a truly immersive cinematic experience, Arcam’s AVR amplifiers complete with Dirac room correction are well worth considering.  In addition to the standard room correction techniques they also offer mixed phase correction, impulse response correction and frequency response correction.

But what does this mean in real terms?  It means instead of being able to point at the speaker producing sound at that precise moment, you are entered in to a world of sound moving seamlessly around the room.  It also means, any room you have, can sound great.

The DIRAC setup was once the preserve of the ultra high end equipment, but with the Arcam technology we have access to a full software package which enables end users to calibrate our own systems. In the meantime, take a look at the time lapse video of our demo room being Dirac calibrated.
