L-Acoustics released the next generation of its 3D audio processing engine, L-ISA Processor II, a hardware solution that provides object-based mixing for immersive audio productions. It is available in four different output configurations through a one-time, tiered license fee.
Both the new processor and its predecessor offer control of spatial audio processing and virtual acoustics for up to 96 audio objects based on speaker positioning information and mixing parameters. This includes pan, width, distance, elevation and aux send. The new L-ISA Processor II doubles the original unit’s potential output count of 64 up to 128 outputs.
L-Acoustics is offering L-ISA Processor II in a choice of four output counts — 16, 32, 64 or 128 — from the same device, with various capacities accessible via different lifetime licenses at tiered pricing levels. Customers now have access to immersive tools, 128 inputs and premium-quality 96 kHz sampling. The L-ISA Processor II is housed in a 3U chassis equipped with Neutrik connectors and is remotely controlled by L-ISA Controller software. The new device is equipped with Milan-AVB dual-network redundancy. The product also features MADI connections.
Both iterations of L-ISA Processor are also compatible with DeskLink, which places direct control of L-ISA objects on the channel strips of DiGiCo, SSL and Yamaha mixing consoles. Partnerships with vision-based tracking systems like BlackTrax, Robert Juliat’s SpotMe, Modulo Pi and Zactrack continue to be supported by the new product as well.
L-ISA Processor II will begin shipping to customers in the first quarter of 2022.
