Lexicon, the Northridge-based maker, has partnered with the IMAX Enhanced programme resulting in the MC-10 processor, and RV-9 and RV-6 receivers.
The IMAX Enhanced programme is a new certification and licensing program combining the highest-end consumer electronics products with IMAX digitally re-mastered 4K HDR content and DTS audio technologies to offer you a new level of quality in immersive sight and sound experiences for the home.
As one of the program’s initial licensees, Lexicon will offer a line of IMAX Enhanced Lexicon AV receivers, enabling you to experience the IMAX signature sound mix, delivered by DTS, and all with the power and grace of Lexicon’s remarkable line of AV engines.
To become IMAX Enhanced-certified, consumer electronics manufacturers must meet stringent performance standards, set by a certification committee comprised of IMAX and DTS engineers and Hollywood’s leading technical specialists. Those settling down to a home movie with audio powered by an IMAX Enhanced Lexicon AV receiver can expect a heart-pounding immersive sonic experience.
The debut line of IMAX Enhanced models from Lexicon comprises the MC-10 processor, and RV-9 and RV-6 receivers – all now available in the UK.
Lexicon’s IMAX Enhanced AV receivers feature DTS:X immersive audio decoding that is optimised to accurately reproduce the full dynamic range of IMAX theatrical sound mixes available in IMAX Enhanced content. With precise adjustments modelled on the IMAX theatre sound system, this proprietary IMAX audio mix is translated for home theatre environments and exclusively delivered using a particular variant of the DTS:X codec technology to provide the IMAX signature sound experience in the home.
Additionally, IMAX is working with its global studio and content partners to make available a steady stream of IMAX Enhanced versions of blockbuster movies and additional programming.
