Bombardier’s l’Opéra, an advanced and high fidelity audio system in business aviation, was unveiled recently, featuring full-range speakers, the latest in digital signal processing and seat-centric sound technology, developed for the Global 7500 business jet.
“We’re pleased to demonstrate yet another innovative feature, like Bombardier’s l’Opéra on the Global 7500 aircraft,” said Peter Likoray, senior vice-president, Worldwide Sales and Marketing, Bombardier Business Aircraft. “The Global 7500 jet is redefining the in-flight passenger experience. To that end, we worked with our partners to develop the most advanced audio system in the industry providing an immersive audio experience designed to rival that of advanced home audio systems for the ultimate in listening pleasure.”
Bombardier’s l’Opéra features optimally positioned full-range speakers that deliver exceptionally balanced sound with an available 1,275 watts of power. A combination of high and mid-range drivers, designed to optimize frequency range and eliminate distortion, are customized by floorplan and positioned to achieve the most balanced sound in any cabin layout offered on the Global 7500 jet.
The system offers the latest in digital signal processing with Class D amplifiers that deliver exceptional signal integrity through a fibre optic backbone and high quality digital to analog conversion, for warm, rich and vivid sound. Coupled with seat-centric sound technology and the latest Dolby Digital surround sound, Bombardier’s l’Opéra creates an immersive audio field optimally positioned at ear level throughout the cabin that can be further personalized through an adjustable sweet spot feature. A deep bass integrated subwoofer located within the bulkhead wall of the master suite and club suite or under the Nuage divan, offers an in-fight cinematic experience as well as the perfect viewing and listening angle anywhere in the entertainment suite.
Beyond being recognized as Business Jet of the Year in Robb Report’s Best of the Best 2019 and Grand Laureate winner of the 62nd Annual Laureate Awards in the Business Aviation category, the Global 7500 jet offers Bombardier a spaciousness that is unique among business jets. In addition to Bombardier’s l’Opéra, the aircraft offers the most innovative features such as the recently unveiled Soleil lighting system, the industry’s most advanced cabin lighting technology. Designed and developed exclusively for the Global 7500 aircraft, the Soleil lighting system is aviation’s first circadian rhythm-based cabin lighting technology, and it introduces the revolutionary dynamic daylight simulation feature, which can help combat jet lag. The Global 7500 business jet also offers the patented Nuage seat, meticulously designed for maximum comfort, which introduces an all-new, ergonomically-perfected deep recline position – unavailable on any other competitor business jet.
Bombardier’s l’Opéra is a standard feature on the Global 7500 aircraft. With unmatched speed, range and a smooth ride, the Global 7500 business jet continues to blaze a trail in this new market segment, setting the bar for excellence in the world of business aviation.
