Trinnov Audio announced two free updates to its Altitude A/V processor platform. The Altitude16 and Altitude32 will now be upgradable to four additional channels and is certified to render IMAX Enhanced content playback.
One of Trinnov Audio’s engineers suggested converting the Toslink output of the Altitude16 to ADAT. ADAT is a well-known transport protocol that allows the carriage of four channels at up to 96 kHz. With this approach, Altitude owners can enable four extra outputs with the addition of a simple external D/A converter. On all Altitude32 models, these extra outputs will be available via the built-in AES/EBU outputs.
These major feature updates are expected to become available by mid-October and will be available to Altitude owners through a free software download. In this software release, every new and existing Altitude owner will get four extra outputs and support for IMAX Enhanced. The updates are free of charge.
