C SEED and L-Acoustics Creations Reach New Heights with

Maunakea

Imagine total transformation of your living space into the ultimate home entertainment center at the push of a button. The combination of the M1 TV by C SEED, and Island Prestige, the immersive sound space by L-Acoustics Creations, offer a viewing and listening experience at the pinnacle luxury and versatility. This brilliant AV technology solution is named after a volcano in Hawaii, Maunakea, the world’s tallest peak - even taller than Mount Everest. In the same spirit, our latest product collaboration affords new heights of modern elegance for the luxury home entertainment.

Experience a film or a livestreamed concert at home

Maunakea taps into a contemporary and vital desire to transform the living space into a more human-centered, multi-purpose entertainment, and social environment. When a screen is required, it appears, as if by magic! The viewer is fully enveloped in physical comfort and stunning realism when watching a film or a favorite series. When end credits roll and guests wish to take in the view of a beautiful sunset, Island gently rotates to face any direction for a change of experience and scenery. It’s unique, natural, elegant, and effortless, the very definition of a luxury lifestyle.

“Maunakea,” explains Laurent Vaissié, CEO of L-Acoustics, “is named after a volcano in Hawaii, the world’s tallest peak as measured from its sea-floor base to summit. In the same spirit, our latest product collaboration with C SEED affords new heights of modern elegance for the luxury home entertainment market. And just as most of Maunakea, the volcano, resides beneath the ocean, the technology offered by L-Acoustics Creations and C SEED remains cleverly concealed yet spectacular.”

“Separately, Island Prestige and M1 TV each represent superb and inimitable technological achievements in their respective markets. But together? There is simply no more visually and sonically incredible way to experience a film or a livestreamed concert event at home,” shares C SEED Founder and Managing Partner Alexander Swatek. “Maunakea is the latest evolution and true zenith of home entertainment, rivaling the experience of the movie industry’s top screening rooms.”

Maunakea solution is not the first joint endeavor for the two companies. Since 2017, L-Acoustics provides amplified controller and embedded loudspeaker technologies for C SEED Hyde 125, a fully retractable speaker system delivering up to 125 dB of pristine output and cinema-quality 9.1 surround sound.

Island
Prestige

Unprecedented sonic environment

The self-contained personal auditorium, Island Prestige, was designed by Dr. Christian Heil and the R&D team at L-Acoustics, the pioneering manufacturer of sound systems that serve the world’s leading artists and music festivals.

Island is a marvel of technology, offering an unprecedented sonic environment that very comfortably places its occupants at the epicenter of the concert, film, or gaming action via 13 professional audio frontal speakers, five rear speakers, and two substantial subwoofers. Optional overhead speakers provide for an even more immersive experience.

With a media processor, Island’s state-of-the-art technology seamlessly integrates to play audio from any format, including CD, DVD, Blu-ray, gaming platforms, Dolby Atmos, and hi-res streaming services.

The Unfolding 165 inch 4K MicroLED TV

Deep black, pure colors

Far beyond the capabilities of LCD and OLED, the latest 4K MicroLED technology creates amazingly vibrant colors and a truly stunning resolution. The all-important black is deep and accurate like never before because of a special screen surface treatment. Beside having HDR Plus (High Dynamic Range) on board, the Adaptive Gap Calibration Technology (AGC) renders borders between the screen's wings completely invisible. 

M1 TV Color Options

The C SEED M1 is available in these elegant colors:

C SEED Titanium - C SEED Black - C SEED Silver – C SEED Gold

 

Island Color Options

Island offers a variety of standard wood finishes and fabric color options which can be further customized in collaboration with interior designers.
