A new kind of flat, directional loudspeaker developed by UK company, ZonarSound, will be launched at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) tradeshow in Amsterdam later this month.

The speaker is capable of directing sound to targeted audiences, providing listeners with sound clarity without interfering with surrounding areas. It will be particularly useful in environments where sound needs to be controlled, such as large public spaces like shopping centres, museums and corporate offices etc. Based on the flat, flexible speaker technology developed and patented by parent company Warwick Audio Technologies, the ZonarSound speaker panel is extremely thin, but also very robust, with an indicative 90 minute fire rating, making it suitable for use within suspended ceilings.

Because the speakers use electrostatic technology, they are inherently low power, allowing four speakers to be run from each specially designed ZonarSound amplifier. ZonarSound Chairman, Derek Mottershead, says: “The new ZonarSound loudspeaker is attracting significant interest in view of its broad spectrum of applications. We are already in discussion with potential partners throughout Europe and beyond and anticipate meeting many more at the ISE.”

Andrew Samalionis, Sales Manager for ZonarSound, adds: “We have already appointed exclusive distributors in several European countries and are in discussions with many more. We anticipate that, by launching ZonarSound at the ISE show, we will use the event as both a discussion forum and an opportunity to meet with more potential partners.” The ISE tradeshow is one of the largest shows for the professional AV and electronics systems industry with over 800 exhibitors and 400,000 attendees. This year’s show will be held in the Amsterdam RAI.  ZonarSound can be found at stand 7-C191, or by emailing
