MEDIA ROOM HOME THEATERUltimate Realism is the Purpose, Advanced Technologies are the Mean.
Movies are primarily created to be an emotional experience. Psychoacoustic studies show that our brains react fully to sounds that they perceive as real. In other terms, the more natural the sound reproduction is, the highest the viewer experience level and involvement into the movie will be. All the technologies developed for the Goldmund Media Room Home Theater are directed towards this result, taking into consideration the way movie soundtracks are designed by sound engineers.
Launched in 2007, Goldmund Media Room Home Theater is our most high tech and exclusive home theater solution.
While the Logos Home Theater has room volume constraints and a limited number of speakers it can use, the Media Room Home Theater extreme surround sound can use an unlimited number of speakers and be developed virtually for any room volume. It is the number of drivers that produces a perfect surround without any blanks between speakers. Just like in real life, you hear the sound moving around you. You are completely immersed into a surround sound environment.
As an example, the Media Room Home Theater present in the pictures has a 23.3 system (versus a 5.1) . Goldmund is the only company in the audio market to propose this technological achievement.
The Media Home Theater also allows the listener to easily switch between stereo and multichannel setup.
In real life, explosions, earthquakes or a plane take off produce low frequencies but also deep vibrations. The Media Room Home Theater reproduces those vibrations thanks to infra-subwoofers. You feel them going through your body which makes the experience completely realistic and highly enjoyable for action movies aficionados. The infra subwoofers are fed by powerful Telos amplifiers.
The difference between the Media Room and the Logos Room does not lie in the technological concepts used to design them but in the equipment itself. The Media Room Home Theater equipment is composed of U-Logos 1 speaker, U-Logos 2 subwoofer, U-Logos 3 infra subwoofers, U-Telos Mono & Stereo amplifiers, and the Mimesis 32.5 processor. Their installation requires a hilti frame, and the system a U-controller.
Each Media Room Home Theater adapts to the décor of any room in which it is installed thanks to modular elements. The ideal position of the system components (individual drivers, amplifiers, and custom DSP processors) is calculated by Proteus such as for the Logos Home Cinema and adapts to the specifications of the room including its size, shape, and structural constraints.
This is why all Media Room Home Theater systems have an optimal function in terms of sound level, sound quality, and surround perfection.
Proteus also allows the creation of virtual speakers when structural constraints of the décor do not permit the installation of a real one (when, for example, there is a door). The original missing signal is recreated by Proteus then recreated by additional speakers whose delays and gains are precisely calculated to replace the missing one.
But what is unique is that we can also place a speaker anywhere in a room and re-process the signal for its exact location even if it does not exist in the original decoded format. This is what gives us unparalleled freedom in the customization of a room.
SOUND QUALITY AND LEVEL
Proteus also outputs configuration files that are loaded into the amplifiers DSP’s that include the Leonardo Time Alignment Correction©, crossovers, signal mixing, gains, and delays. Thanks to this digital customization of each of its drivers, the Media Room Home Theater is able to provide a real life sound pressure equivalent, with a systematic cancellation of all non-linearity in amplitude, phase, and time. Any Goldmund Media Room Home Theater is capable of 120dB of sound pressure over the whole bandwidth (7Hz-40kHz). With the tight control of the drivers by the Telos Amplification technology, this prowess is achieved without any distortion.
The Goldmund wide-seating technology allows a perfect sound in every listening position. This concept applies to private Media Room Home Theater systems and to professional or commercial facilities such as art galleries, bars, and clubs.
Proteus technology acts as the “brain” of the Media Room Home Theatre. It controls the system and guarantees that it remains fully operational at all times, even in case of sudden component failure. Goldmund has developed an innovative alarm technology that allows the defective element to be automatically detected by the system and send a notification to Goldmund technical team (upon customer consent of data sharing policies involved).
The Goldmund Media Room Home Theater is exclusively sold and installed by the Goldmund Custom Shop that takes care of the most demanding customers. Goldmund has a strict installation process to guarantee the best performance of all Media Room Home Cinema systems. For this, the Goldmund Custom Shop experts collaborate with architects or interior designers through the different phases of each project and travel from Geneva to plan the installation phase with the building team. They also fine-tune the system on site before delivery.
Service is made easy, as customers only need to refer to one provider.
