Trinnov Audio Offering DTS:X Pro Free for Altitude32 and Altitude16 processors

trinnovaudio iseTrinnov Audio, a designer and manufacturer of reference audio processors for home theaters, high-end hi-fi, professional audio and commercial cinemas, is expanding its in-house platform by offering DTS:X Pro as a free-of-charge update to all new and existing owners of Altitude32 and Altitude16 processors.

Promoted by Trinnov Audio throughout 2019 in partnership with DTS, Trinnov will demonstrate DTS:X Pro for the first time as a publicly available technology in a purpose-built 15 seat 15.3.10 channel immersive audio theatre in Hall One, stand 1-N100, in partnership with co-exhibitors Procella Audio and Kaleidescape. An Altitude32 processor and Amplitude8 power amplifiers will be utilized for the playback system, along with 28 Procella loudspeakers, Procella amplifiers, a Kaleidescape Strato and a Sony VPL-W5000ES projector.

Fighting obsolescence: the DTS:X Pro software upgrade is now being provided at no charge to all new and existing owners of Altitude32 and Altitude16 processors. Whilst other manufacturers need to release a new generation of products to support this feature, Trinnov’s unique software-based platform, designed for sustainability with unprecedented power and upgradability, requires no hardware change. The upgrade is available through a simple online download that is typically completed in under 15 minutes.

DTS:X is an immersive object-oriented audio format that can provide astoundingly high spatial resolution and imaging. Prior to the introduction of DTS:X Pro, DTS:X for the home was limited to only 11 main channels plus LFE, typically in a 7.1.4 configuration. Trinnov’s unique implementation of DTS:X Pro enables discrete rendering of the full DTS:X complement of 30.2 channels, up to the channel capacity of each individual processor.

Trinnov’s Altitude32 processor is the only consumer processor capable of discretely rendering the 26 unique channels of the ISE demonstration system. Processors based on traditional DSP-based platforms are currently limited to 16 discrete channels. This is significant because systems with higher speaker counts provide a higher degree of spatial resolution and greater immersion, in addition to providing much greater consistency of sound among all the seats in a theater.

Introduced in 2014, Trinnov’s Altitude32 processor remains uniquely capable of up to 32 discretely rendered channels for home theater, and up to 64 independent channels to include multi-amplified speakers and multiple subwoofers when used with a separate Altitude48ext. For more modest systems, the lower-cost Altitude16 can render 16 discrete channels whilst maintaining the same benefits in terms of longevity. Both models benefit from Trinnov’s exclusive, patented technologies, including Trinnov’s Speaker/Room Optimizer and 2D/3D loudspeaker remapping.
