The ultimate movie experience

The Palme d’Or room is for the most discerning moviegoers who want to discover the immersive performance of a true private cinema. Standards are pushed to the highest level by combining the best current audio and video equipment with an advanced acoustic treatment, inspired by real movie theaters.

If you have an unoccupied room in your home and want to design a private cinema, this room will definitely inspire you!

The Palme d’Or theater offers an uncompromising experience worthy of the best movie theaters.

Real cinema speakers

To provide a unique immersive experience, the Palme d’Or room features a Dolby Atmos and DTS:X 9.2.4 sound system with the prestigious Elipson Infinite cinema speakers. Front channels are handled by the Elipson Infinite 14 speakers, surround sound by the Elipson Infinite 8, and Atmos effects are handled by the Elipson IC8 in-wall speakers. This speaker system is supported by the Elipson Infinite S12 subwoofer, specifically designed for cinema and powered by an Elipson Infinite A1000 receiver.

The immersive sound experience is provided by Elipson Infinite speakers designed to the same exacting standards as the speakers used in the largest movie theaters.

This set of home theater speakers can reproduce soundtracks with the same accuracy as speakers used in movie theaters while being discreet thanks to their in-wall design. Indeed, the Atmos speakers are embedded in the walls and ceiling. The front speakers are hidden behind the acoustically transparent screen, like a real movie theater.

The speakers of the Palme d’or room are built into the walls and ceiling to provide great performance while remaining very discreet.

To give action scenes all the power they deserve, the Palme d’or room at Son-Vidé uses a set of five power amplifiers: two Elipson A2700 amps, two Elipson A680 amps and one Elipson Infinite A1000 amp. A true demonstration of strength with a total of nearly 3,000 watts! All the electronics are installed in a technical bay outside the room to eliminate light pollution and noise (ventilation).

No less than five power amplifiers are used in the Palme d’Or theater to power the Elipson system and reproduce the film soundtracks with phenomenal power.

Professional calibration

To bring even the most discreet sound effects to life, the Palme d’or room uses a full acoustic treatment. Like a real cinema, insulation is added to the walls, ceiling and floor to eliminate unwanted reverberation and resonance. You will be able to compare the benefits of this system with the other home theater rooms, which don’t feature complex acoustic treatments.

The Palme d’or room is calibrated by the specialist Trinnov in order to carefully adjust the sound reproduction according to the acoustic specificities of the room and the speakers.

Unwanted reverberation is limited by the calibration performed by Trinnov, a specialist in professional systems. To do this, the 9.2.4 channel system has been combined with a Trinnov Altitude 16 AV preamplifier. Thanks to the Trinnov Microphone 3D XLR5 calibration microphone, it is possible to take measurements of the room and to achieve a highly accurate audio correction. It corrects delays, phasing and resonance, but also improves the placement of various spatialization effects.

The most beautiful 4K image

The Palme d’Or room also features large screen projection with the ultimate Sony VPL-XW7000ES projector and Lumene Movie Palace UHD 4K Acoustic 350C fixed screen. Thanks to its laser lamp, this projector can project UHD 4K HDR content at up to 120 fps. You can therefore enjoy movies and TV shows, but also video games with flawless responsiveness. A PS5 game console is available to enjoy the ultimate gaming experience with the latest video games.
