NEW YORK, New York — At the 139th AES Convention, JBL Professional is inviting attendees to experience the power of immersive audio with listening sessions on JBL Professional’s new 7 Series Master Reference Monitor system. As immersive audio continues to take hold in theaters, production houses are gearing up to deliver immersive content into the home. The Immersive Theater will showcase both episodic and long-form television productions in immersive audio formats, delivering an incredibly realistic listening experience.

While large dubbing theaters can accommodate large overhead loudspeakers, content creators and broadcast trucks need reference-quality loudspeakers that fit within their spatial restrictions. The JBL 7 Series LSR708i and LSR705i Master Reference Monitors are optimized for use on immersive audio projects in facilities where such restrictions exist. Although compact, both models deliver unprecedented dynamic range along with low-frequency extension into the 30Hz range and high-frequency output to 36 kHz.

"JBL Professional developed the 7 Series system specifically for immersive audio production in which height channels are employed,” said Peter Chaikin, Senior Manager, Recording and Broadcast, JBL Professional. “In our Immersive Theater at AES, customers will experience newly created immersive content and our enabling technologies.”

The presentations in the Immersive Theater will take place every hour on the hour during AES, but space is limited and registration is required. To reserve a seat, please email Brian Krawcykowski at Brian.krawcykowski@harman.com.
