Christie® , a leader in creating and delivering the world’s best visual and audio
experiences, is pleased to announce the launch of the Christie Vive Audio™ LS
Series 4-way screen channel and 2-way surround loudspeakers at CinemaCon 2016.
Featuring planar ribbon driver technology with its low distortion and superior
transient response characteristics, LS Series screen channels are single-enclosure
designs and ideal for most 5.1 and 7.1 distributed sound applications. Providing
unparalleled timbre matching between screen and surround channels, LS Series
enclosures offer a cost-effective entry into superior cinema sound. Christie will be
demonstrating the impressive sound of the LS Series in the Milano 1 ballroom at

“The Vive Audio LS Series is built upon the proven performance of Christie Vive
Audio LA Series cinema loudspeakers and is ideal for distributed audio applications
in small to mid-sized auditoriums,’ says Chris Connett, Business Development
Manager for Audio Solutions, Christie. “The highly efficient design of LS Series
enclosures enables exhibitors and integrators to use smaller amplifier
configurations without sacrificing output, resulting in even greater overall cost

There are six models in the Vive Audio LS Series line up. These include the LS1 and
LS2 screen channel loudspeakers, as well as the LS1S, LS2S, LS4S and LS5S
surround channel loudspeakers. Rotatable waveguides on the LS Series screen
channels supports deployment in low profile situations or for use as corner
surrounds in larger 5.1 applications. Their single-enclosure design ensures quick
deployment and reduced labour costs and their shallow depth enables deployment in
even the narrowest of behind-screen spaces. Moreover, manufactured by Christie,
the LS Series loudspeakers are a perfect complement to Christie’s award-winning
digital cinema projection systems and, when combined, offer a complete, single-
source exhibition solution.

Helios S.A., Poland’s largest cinema chain, confirmed that it will provision a third
site with Christie Vive Audio™ using the LA Line Array Series for their Dolby Atmos
auditorium and the remaining auditoriums with the new LS Line Source Series, a 4-
way screen channel and 2-way surround loudspeaker system to be formally
launched at CinemaCon 2016.

“The highly efficient design of Christie’s LS Series continues the use of Christie’s
ribbon driver technology combined with wave guide technology to provide a cost
effective/performance delivering solution for 5.1 and 7.1 auditoriums’ added

“The Vive Audio LS Series is an ideal choice for exhibitors seeking to upgrade their
cinema sound at a competitive price, without sacrificing quality and reliability.’
