EMMA Multimedia Experienced

EMMA Multimedia Experienced is the first available category and at the same times the entrance to international in-car Multimedia competitions. The judging on sound and installation consists of criteria only concerning safety (installation) and limited sound and picture judging.

In this category a competitor with decent sound, picture and installation will feel at home. As only a couple of things will be judged in Installation, no extensive installation is expected in the car. Sound will be judged with a couple of tracks of the official EMMA-Multimedia DVD. Of course if, through the qualified advice from the judges and other competitors, the installation, picture quality and sound improve, it will be time to make the next step up, the advanced category.

As there will be national and international finals in this category, it will be the first step to learn why EMMA is special – it’s the feeling of belonging to a community of people who have the same hobby, where being there is more important than winning.

A competitor is eligible to compete in this category if they meet all of the following criteria:

 - This category is open to anyone who wants to compete in an EMMA-competition
 - The mobile electronics system that he/she is entering to the competition should have been purchased through retail channels or used. If requested by an event official, proof of purchase (i.e. numbered sales receipt) should be available for verification.

Furthermore:

 - No modified or self built active (=power supplied) equipment is allowed (e.g. head unit, DVD, player, display, sound or  video amplifiers, line driver active crossover etc.).
- In EMMA Multimedia Experienced, there will be a national and international Championship.
 - It is not allowed to use either a center channel and/or an surround channel in this category.

EMMA Multimedia Master

EMMA Multimedia Master is the next step following EMMA Multimedia Experienced – taking the Multimedia experience to the next level, where a little bit more is judged on installation and the full spectrum for the sound and picture performance will be judged. If you cannot or do not want to go to further with your installation, this is the category to be in. The competitors will receive qualified feedback about the sound and picture and installation of their Multimedia systems to improve these in the future.
