been available to date, " he
says. " Source-Based Tone
Mapping addresses this
problem and allows the
source to send this different
type of content in a video
signal that takes advantage
of the display's capabilities,
combining the content.
Rather than using a fixed
set of brightness and color
ranges for aggregate content,
it uses a separate set of
parameters for each of those
different content types. "
That enables the source
to adapt this content to the
specific display's HDR, SDR
and dynamic HDR capabilities.
Integrators should note
the feature is very applicable
to the gaming market,
Harrell adds.
" In some instances, PCs
and games have asked the
user to manually adjust content
to try to optimize these
kinds of issues for HDR, and
SBTM can be used to help
eliminate that, " he says. The
multi-windowed PC gaming
experience was cited as a
specific use case benefiting
from SBTM in which
L-Acoustics, C SEED
Partner on Maunakea
Entertainment System
COMBINING TWO STATE-OF-THE-ART HOME entertainment
solutions, L-Acoustics and C SEED have teamed up to
announce their new Maunakea AV entertainment system.
L-Acoustics CEO Laurent Vaissie says the AV system is
named after a volcano in Hawaii, and the name symbolizes
its high-performance capabilities.
" Maunakea is named after a volcano in Hawaii. [It is] the
world's tallest peak as measured from the sea floor base to
summit - even taller than Mount Everest, " Vaissie points out.
" In the same spirit, our latest product collaboration with
C SEED affords new heights of modern elegance in luxury
home entertainment systems. And just as most of Maunakea,
the volcano resides beneath the ocean surface, the technology
offered by L-Acoustics Creations and C SEED remains
cleverly concealed, yet spectacular. "
The audio portion of the Maunakea system L-Acoustics
Island Prestige personal auditorium solution. The Island
product line was designed by Dr. Christian Heil and L-Acoustics'
R&D team, and the Island Prestige system is designed
to place users in the center of movies, videos and audio
content via the system's 13 front speakers, five rear speakers
and two subwoofers.
In addition to managing the playback of audio content, the
Island audio system also utilizes a media processor that can
handle a range of physical media and streaming content plus
technologies such as Dolby Atmos and high-resolution audio.

each monitor/display in a
high-performance setup can
be optimized for the potential
mixed bag of content it's
receiving during game play,
without user configuration.
Gamers comprise a key
HDMI 2.1 demographic
thanks to next-generation
Xbox and PlayStation consoles,
immersive audio experiences
and the need for
blazing, high-quality imagery.
HDMI 2.1a adds to important
features catered to the
gaming sector with HDMI
2.1's Variable Refresh Rate,
Auto Low Latency Mode
and Quick Frame Transport
introductions.
All types of set-top boxes
and many other devices, including
various displays, will
be able to implement the
HDMI 2.1a SBTM feature,
many via firmware upgrade,
depending on the design.
Both source and sink need
to be upgraded for the feature
to work.
Harrell adds that HDMI
2.1a version will also enhance
the interface's Quick Media
Switching (QMS) feature.
The Maunakea audio incorporates 18 speakers and two subs,
while the video is a 165-inch microLED display.
The Maunakea system's video is handled by C SEED's M1
TV, which is a 165-inch microLED display engineered to rise
up and unfold to stretch almost 14 feet across. The display
provides 4K resolution, along with the ability to deliver up
to 1,000 nits of brightness and 64 billion colors. C SEED also
notes the display is capable of producing deep blacks, accurate
color, and compatibility with HDR content.
" Separately, Island Prestige and M1 each represent superb
and inimitable technological achievements in their respective
markets. But together ... there is simply no more visually
and sonically incredible way to experience a film or a livestreamed
concert event home, " states Alexander Swatek,
founder and managing partner, C SEED.
The companies previously collaborated on the C SEED
Hyde 125, which is a fully retractable 9.1 speaker system
that's been deployed in tandem with C SEED's outdoor TV
designed by Porsche Design Studio. -Robert Archer
