UK spatial audio specialist, Out Board, is showcasing the latest developments of their TiMax immersive audio and show control systems at Prolight + Sound 2019.
Demos will feature the TiMax 500S software workflows, including StageSpace for auto-calculation of adaptive localisation objects directly from a map of the venue, and TiMax HARDCore FGPA, a new DSP engine for the TiMax Soundhub platform, which adds extended delay-matrix memory and dynamic delay-morphing algorithms to create transparent real-time localisation.
Out Board will also preview the all-new TiMax TrackerD4 evolution of their market-leading stagetracking showcontrol. The TrackerD4 offers enhanced ROI across wider applications. With its long-established vocal-localisation processes now further integrated within the TiMax SoundHub software via OSC control, the responsiveness of the new D4 also opens up, for the first time, the reality of cost-effective lighting and multimedia stagetracking control.
On-stand demonstrations will pull all of these technologies together into spatial experiences, featuring TiMax's panoramic Orchestral Hugeness and immersive 3D soundscapes. Alongside multitrack arrangements of Greig concertos, as well as electronic music compositions and sound effect beds, a panoramically immersive Beethoven’s 5th will accompany a specially licensed appearance of the popular internet game, Line Rider.
Out Board’s Dave Haydon will also contribute to the PL + S Immersive Technology Forum, where on Wednesday, April 3, at 1pm, he will pose the question: What’s Immersive? discussing the motives and expectations of spatial audio and show control for live performance, presentation and experiences.
