JBL PROFESSIONAL SCREENARRAY® - THE LOUDPEAKER OF DIGITAL CINEMA
SCREENARRAY® CINEMA SPEAKERS FROM JBL PROFESSIONAL
DESIGNED WITH DIGITAL CINEMA IN MIND
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – NOVEMBER 1, 2001 – While the debate about Digital Cinema for
today’s theatres goes on, it is widely accepted that digital offers an increased visual and audio
experience. Digital cinema soundtracks produce wider frequency range and wider dynamic range
than analog systems, which can tax the ability of many existing speaker systems. ScreenArray®
Series Cinema speakers from JBL Professional are designed to meet the increased audio demands
of digital cinema, and have proven their acceptance within both the movie
production and cinema exhibition communities.
“Industry experts predict that hundreds of screens will be built or converted to
digital over the next twelve months. Adding ScreenArray speakers to these
rooms will help provide the best possible cinema experience to the movie
patrons,” explained Chuck Goodsell, Director, Cinema Products for JBL Professional. “And beyond that, any theater that currently has our two-way or
three-way ScreenArray systems is ready for digital sound. We are proud to say
that ScreenArray is the loudspeaker of digital cinema.”
According to the Motion Picture Association of America website, “The members of the MPAA believe that the introduction of digital cinema represents
the greatest opportunity for enhancing the theatrical film experience since the
introduction of sound and advent of color. ...An all digital system has the potential of providing real benefits to theater audiences, theater owners, filmmakers and feature film distributors.”

What makes ScreenArray the loudspeaker of digital cinema? Bernard Warner, Senior Systems
Engineer for JBL Professional, a member of the team of engineers who developed ScreenArray
explains, “ScreenArray systems are capable of handling the wide dynamic range associated with
modern digital soundtracks such as SDDS, DTS, and Dolby Digital. They can handle the peak
dynamic requirements as well as the continuous long-term power requirements. Some of the
older cinema designs are not able to handle the peak power requirements that digital soundtracks
can reproduce. ScreenArray also has pattern control innovations including SSC™ - Screen
Spreading Compensation and Focused Coverage Technology™ for more uniform coverage of the
audience area.”
JBL ScreenArray systems are currently in use in many of the premier digital cinema production
facilities. In December, 2000 Sunset Post of North Hollywood, CA opened the first post production suite for digital cinema with a ScreenArray system augmented by JBL Professional surround
speakers.
ScreenArray speaker systems are available in several two and three-way systems. The 3632 and
4632 ScreenArray three-way systems are THX-approved, offering superior coverage, maximum
power handling, and extremely low distortion in systems that are just 450 mm (17 3/4 inches)
deep. The smaller two-way systems, 3622N and 4622/4622N, provide smooth and accurate
reproduction of soundtracks in a compact, cost-effective format. All ScreenArray systems are
shipped fully assembled.
Headquartered in Northridge, California, JBL Professional is the world’s leading designer,
manufacturer, and marketer of professional loudspeakers for recording and broadcast, musician,
