Ansbach, Germany, March 2016
The German company, Ascendo Immersive Audio (AIA) could prevail in the Top New Technology Awards@ISE in two categories: Not only in the subwoofer category, but also in the theatre/multi-room audio category, the South German audio specialists convinced the jury and brought home the awards from the ISE.
The keyword - Top New Technology - perfectly describes the AIA products: since these consistently feature the newest technologies, especially regarding the organisation of sound distribution for the new cinema formats Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D and DTS:X. Due to the use of Ethernet-AVB directly on the 1 kW active loudspeaker complex 32 channel immersive installations can be easily controlled. CAT5 cables and a standard Ethernet switch are the only ingredients needed for uncompromising high-end cinema reproduction. Every single loudspeaker has a powerful digital signal processor (DSP) that can be controlled via the
network. Thereby the delay and EQ can be quickly and precisely optimised by the software. Using a tablet or a smartphone the system can, in day-to-day use, easily be remote controlled. All the technology has one single objective: uncompromising authentic and breathtaking reproduction of films and music.
Jürgen Scheuring, Head of Technology at AIA says: "AIA, as a relatively new company, participated in this year's ISE in Amsterdam for the first time. The fact that we were awarded two of the much sought-after awards demonstrates that we are on the right track with our uncompromising network based approach for multi-channel and immersive audio. We are honoured and would like to say thank you for the great trust placed in our company."
