Trinnov Audio to demo DTS:X Pro as publicly available technology for first time

Following a year of close collaboration, Trinnov Audio will be offering DTS:X Pro as a free-of-charge update to all new and existing owners of Altitude32 and Altitude16 processors.

ISE 2020 will be the first time Trinnov will demonstrate DTS:X Pro as a publicly available technology. It will be used in a purpose-built 15-seat 15.3.10 channel immersive audio theatre in 1-N100, in partnership with co-exhibitors Procella Audio and Kaleidescape. 

The demo cinema will feature an Altitude32 processor and Amplitude8 power amplifiers for the playback system, along with 28 Procella loudspeakers, Procella amplifiers, a Kaleidescape Strato and a Sony VPL-W5000ES projector. 

In a move to fight obsolescence, Trinnov is offering the DTS:X Pro software upgrade using its unique software-based platform, designed for sustainability with unprecedented power and upgradability, and requires no hardware change. The upgrade is available through a free online download that takes around 15 minutes to complete.

Trinnov will also be debuting two immersive audio trailers at ISE. Visitors can experience the company’s new Cinema trailer in the ISE theatre and, as a bonus, can later download it for playback in their own home cinemas. 

The other debut they visitors will experience is Trinnov’s ‘Music Machine One’ video, combining images of an imagined music machine with a dynamic soundtrack that fully demonstrates the capabilities of immersive audio, using multiple active objects and DTS:X Pro playback using all the loudspeakers in the room.

Also during the show, Trinnov’s CEO, Arnaud Laborie will participate in a panel discussion entitled, ‘The Future of immersive Audio’. 

Taking place on Thursday 13th February in room D201, the panel will discuss where the immersive audio landscape sits today and how future developments will affect home theatre designs and the experiences they deliver. 

Topics discussed will look at: ‘Will MPEG-H be disruptive?’; ‘How is the music industry embracing and leveraging immersive audio?’; ‘Are there any differences in what is needed to reproduce music vs movie content?’; ‘What current academic research is pushing the boundaries?’; ‘How will the new CEDIA CEB22 Audio Design recommended practices change how we do things?’.

Joining Laborie on the panel will be Perter Aylett (Archimedia), Wilfried Van Baelen (Auro Technologies), Guillaume Le Nost (L-Acoustics), Sawan Nichani (MACBEE) and Andreas Ehret (Dolby).
