Axpona 2011/Atlanta will mark the first time AIX Records' new Blu-ray 3D music albums will be presented using state-of-the-art audio equipment. The demonstration is expected to be one of the highlights of the Axpona High Performance Audio show to be held at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel, April 14-17. Rita Coolidge, Mark Chestnutt, James Walker, Free Flight and others are featured.

Axpona, the East Coast’s premier high performance audio show, set for April 14-17 in Atlanta, will include the first demonstrations of the new AIX “3D Music Albums” heard through state-of-the-art audio equipment, according to Mark Waldrep, Ph. D., founder and chief engineer of AIX Records. AIX Records had a celebrated demonstration of High Definition Audio/Video on standard Blu-ray discs at AXPONA 2010 and has just completed shooting several music video albums in state-of-the-art 3D video and high definition audio that will be released in the new Blu-ray 3D format.

The three days of recording/shooting will result in albums from Rita Coolidge, Mark Chestnutt, James Walker, Free Flight and others. Dr. Waldrep conceived and produced these sessions, which he says, “are not concerts with thousands of screaming fans, but intimate, private performances that can be experienced over and over in your own home theater.” The music performances were captured using uncompressed PCM at 96 kHz/24 bits PCM and the video was recorded at 1080p/30 and will be made compatible with Blu-ray 3D at 1080p 23.98 fps.

“The AIX presentation was one of the real highlights of our 2010 show,” said Steve Davis, Axpona’s Managing Partner. “We are excited to bring the first public airing of this technology to Atlanta for Axpona 2011. It provides another illustration of AXPONA’s commitment to high performance music reproduction.”

Mr. Davis also noted that with nine months to go before the first attendee enters the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel. “We already have an impressive list of exhibitors. In addition to AIX, well known names include: Audience, B&W, Krell, Legacy Audio and VAC, with more than 100 high performance audio nameplates represented.”

Audio Expo North America's mission is to further the faithful reproduction of music. Its outreach, by education and demonstration, is to dealers and consumers. It is dedicated to the proposition that living with music is different and better than living without music. The organization's AXPONA Show, is scheduled for April 14-17, 2011.
