Modulo Pi Kinetic Media Server Now Compatible with L-Acoustics L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound Technology


Modulo Pi has announced compatibility between its Modulo Kinetic media server and L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology by L-Acoustics.

L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound technology is a multidimensional, object-based approach to designing, mixing and processing sound. Already deployed on over 7,000 performances, L-ISA has been adopted by artists such as Mark Knopfler and Bon Iver, and permanently installed in experiential venues like ARTECHOUSE and Spyscape museum.

Designing the next generation of media server solutions, Modulo Pi has developed Modulo Kinetic, a fully integrated media server solution. Launched in 2016, Modulo Kinetic is a solution used by major venues such as the multi-awarded theme park Puy du Fou, and Atelier des Lumières, the renowned digital art center.

In January 2020, Modulo Pi releases a new version of Modulo Kinetic with full integration of the L-ISA technology by L-Acoustics. The spatial audio system is now included in Modulo Kinetic’s extensive library of preloaded devices, allowing bidirectional interactions between Modulo Kinetic and L-ISA.

Based on this integration, Modulo Pi and L-Acoustics offer real-time interactions between video and spatial audio for state-of-the-art immersive experiences.

Operators can thus easily control the L-ISA solution directly from Modulo Kinetic, enabling spatial audio control from the media server’s timeline sequencer, 3D engine, nodal editor or embedded show controller. The L-ISA system can also send data to Modulo Kinetic — such as audio source pan, width, distance or elevation — to interact with media encoded in the media server, or generative content created with Modulo Kinetic’s 3D engine.

In addition, KineMotion, the tracking module within Modulo Kinetic, becomes a certified tracking system for L-ISA. Available as an option for Modulo Kinetic, the new optical tracking module thus offers automatic sound source positioning when working with L-ISA.
