StormAudio debuts new ISP Elite MK3 at ISE & High End

StormAudio introduced its latest high-performance surround sound preamp/processor at last week’s ISE, the ISP Elite MK3.

The company is well known for producing futureproof, upgradeable processors with problem-solving digital input and output options. Its latest model is no exception and also features a sleek new colour display and modern design.

Fully compatible with DCI and Dolby ecosystems, as well as multiple DSP and amplifier platforms, it is able to decide and upmix the most sought-after immersive surround formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X Pro, Auro-3D, and IMAX Enhanced.

“With the component shortages we have been experiencing, being able to release this update to our flagship processor is a huge success, and I’d like to thank our team and our key suppliers for the great job they are doing to navigate through this difficult period,” said Olivier Thumerel, CEO of StormAudio. “We are very happy to be back at ISE and High End Show Munich and to see our customers and partners face to face again.”

With the firmware 4.3r0 upgrade, the multiroom capability of the StormAudio platform will be decoupled with the addition of the HDMI Matrix function. This new feature will allow different ways to use the second HDMI port available in any ISP equipped with the HDMI 7+2 eARC board co-developed with Cypress Technologies.

Two new multiroom modes – Zone2 AV and Pass Through – will be selectable, offering the possibility of linking a second HDMI output to a defined Audio Video Zone and the ability to connect the second HDMI output to another processor or TV set. The support of the Auto Lipsync feature will allow the system to automatically adjust the Audio Video delay to ensure perfect lipsync at all times.

After its debut at ISE last week, StormAudio will also be showing the new ISP Elite MK3 at High End Show in Munich, which runs from 19-22 May, alongside its recently released 16-channel processor, the ISP Core 16.
