AES (Demo Room 1E05), NEW YORK—HARMAN Professional Solutions, the global leader in audio, video, lighting and control systems, including networked AV, today announced that JBL Professional and Dolby Laboratories will host a series of workshops at AES, showcasing cutting-edge technologies for creating immersive audio in Dolby Atmos. Titled “Immersive Audio for the Modern Control Room,” the workshops will feature a complete production, mastering, and monitoring system for Dolby Atmos, including the new JBL 7 Series Powered studio monitoring system and JBL Intonato 24 monitor management and tuning system.

“With an expanding base of film, broadcast and now music content released in Dolby Atmos format,  professionals will want to know how they can add Atmos capabilities to their studios without breaking the budget,” said Peter Chaikin, Director, Recording Solutions at HARMAN International. “HARMAN is excited to partner with Dolby at AES to demonstrate how the latest JBL technologies make it easy and surprisingly affordable to deliver in the Atmos format. With Dolby Atmos and the new JBL 7 Series Powered master reference monitors, music creators and post-production professionals can go beyond stereo and surround sound to unlock completely new dimensions of depth and texture that audiences will love.”

The new 705P 5-inch and 708P 8-inch powered master reference monitors incorporate dual 250-watt power amplifiers to deliver the same impressive output as the 7 Series Installed line. Designed from the ground up to meet the demanding requirements of complex music and post-production applications, the new JBL 705P and 708P powered studio monitors deliver superb imaging and neutral response in any room. The 7 Series features newly developed JBL high- and low-frequency transducers that deliver two-to-three times the output and dynamic range of conventional studio monitors for critical music and film production applications. Proprietary JBL waveguide technology provides neutral response and exceptional room-to-room consistency, while built-in room EQ solves common low-frequency issues that have plagued engineers for years.

When combined with the JBL Intonato 24 monitor management and tuning system, 7 Series monitors offer an exceptional monitoring platform for audio mix control of all sizes. Intonato 24 tunes the system to deliver a calibrated mixing environment where the speakers work in harmony with the room, ensuring greater accuracy at the mix position.

Live demonstrations will be held at New York’s Javits Center, in AES Demo Room 1E05, every hour on the hour.
