Trinnov Audio will demonstrate its new acoustic processing technology, based on years of research, at ISE 2023 (booth 2D150). In partnership with Krix, Sony, and Officina Acustica, this new digital soundfield control system makes its debut in an active 13.16.6-channel home cinema system.
For the first time, Trinnov will demonstrate its new technology to the public. This innovation takes Trinnov’s fundamental acoustic and signal processing research to the next level and effectively eliminates room modes, according to Trinnov.
“In 2023, we proudly celebrate our 20th anniversary as a company, ” says Arnaud Laborie, CEO Trinnov Audio. “It’s been an incredible journey so far and to celebrate this accomplishment in style, Trinnov is thrilled to demonstrate another groundbreaking technology at ISE 2023. Our new, disruptive algorithm controls the soundfield entirely in time and the three dimensions of the space across the entire listening area. In its first iteration, the algorithm uses subwoofer arrays and sophisticated processing to control the acoustics of the room, including room modes.
“We have reached a point where we believe this new technology has the potential to redefine home theater design. This may well set a new standard and replace today’s best practices. Provided that the minimum required conditions are met, it is now possible to make low frequency room modes disappear within the room. One can now truly talk about Active Acoustics.”
Trinnov will selectively roll out this new technology, based on specific projects, over the next few months before offering the finalized software as a complimentary upgrade to Altitude16 and Altitude32 owners.
To deliver the highest possible performance, Trinnov will demonstrate this innovation in an uncompromised environment. Trinnov is teaming up with a few key partners, starting with long-time and trusted partner Officina Acustica.
Maurizio Conti and Peter Aylett of Officina Acustica engineered an exquisite yet acoustically accurate room that includes 18 seats distributed across three rows. All loudspeakers and subwoofers are provided by Krix. The screen channels are comprised of Krix’s 3-way, bi-amped, horn design MX-40 LCR modules and 16 Hyperphonix 45 surround and overhead speakers. The Double Bass Array, consisting of 16 Cyclonix 18-inch subwoofers — eight at the front of the room and eight at the back, along with Trinnov’s technology, is sure to provide a unique and visceral experience.
All loudspeakers are driven by four Amplitude16 power amplifiers. Surround and overhead speakers are all powered with single-ended channels while screen channels and subwoofers are all bridged.
Complementing the audio is Sony’s flagship GTZ-380 projector, which outputs 10,000 lumens with DCI-P3 capable lasers, illuminating a 5.8 meter wide Screen Research screen.
Thanks to Kordz, MadVR, Screen Research, Surgex, and Zappit for completing the list of equipment used in this unique demonstration.
Arnaud Laborie to Teach at ISE
Trinnov will continue its education effort to help integrators make the right design decisions for maximum performance. This implies a sharp understanding of the contribution and limits of each component and their optimal combination. For low frequencies, the optimal design includes individual subwoofer performance, loudspeaker layout, passive acoustics, and digital acoustic optimization.
Trinnov will contribute to a CEDIA course series dedicated to low frequency reproduction. Arnaud Laborie, Trinnov CEO, will present “The Double Bass Array – Next Generation Bass” at ISE on Wednesday, February 1, at 12:30 in room CC1.4. This series also includes “Subwoofer Room Gain” by Erik Weiderholtz, Perlisten Audio CTO and “Infra Bass in Private Entertainment Spaces” by Geoffrey Heinzel, Partner at Ascendo Immersive Audio GmbH. Arnaud Laborie will also join the panel session Room Acoustics for Better Bass on Thursday, February 2, at 12:30, chaired by Peter Aylett, Partner at Officina Acustica, that will discuss the best design practices to deliver excellent bass across multiple seats.
ISE Attendees can experience Trinnov’s technology at booth 2D150.
