Indy Audio Labs, LLC, international leader in audio/video electronics design and manufacturing and parent of the revered high-performance brands Aragon and Acurus, announced newly expanded Acurus ACT 4 audio processing capabilities. As of Q2 2018, the Acurus ACT 4 will natively decode Dolby Atmos 9.1.6 plus support up to 4 additional configurable channel outputs, for maximum layouts of 9.5.6 or 9.7.4, all with the attention to audio detail Acurus products are known for worldwide.
Available in April 2018 as a hardware/firmware upgrade kit to existing ACT 4 units in the field, all new ACT 4 will be manufactured with the new expanded channel capability built in right from the factory in Jeffersonville Indiana, USA.
Additional web-control features and system upgrades to support the upcoming Acurus proprietary automatic room correction tool, ASPEQT (Acurus Speaker Parameter EQ Tool) are included in the new system as well. ASPEQT is scheduled for release in Spring 2018 and will dramatically simplify the process of immersive processor system EQ and room tuning.
As a result, Acurus’ customers will enjoy a wide spectrum of new advanced capabilities and immersive channel layout configurations in a USA-made processor in very competitive price. Install professionals will value the versatility and easy set-up of the ACT 4 along with its wide stable of support for control solutions from the likes of Savant, C4, Crestron, Elan, Kramer and URC. Backing up its reputation for rock-solid engineering and reliability, the product boasts a full 5-year manufacturer’s warranty.
According to Indy Audio Labs Co-founder and CTO, Ted Moore:
“Acurus continues to remain first to market with the latest immersive cinema processor technology. We were the first wholly-designed American immersive audio processor, first with both 7.3.6 Dolby Atmos and 7.1.4 DTS:X native decoding, first with full support of HDMI 2.0b with HDCP 2.2, and now first to expand into the 20-channel realm with 15.1 Dolby Atmos native decoding plus 4 extra configurable channels. Couple this layout expansion with the ACT 4’s superb implementation of the latest Dolby and DTS upmixers and you have a listening experience that’s as phenomenal as it is flexible. You just won’t find any other immersive processor with the features, capabilities, and installer-friendly focus that the ACT 4 has to offer.”
