Datasat will unveil the next era of surround sound at ISE 2014, with an upgraded RS20i home cinema processor sporting Auro-3D sound decoding. The company says it will begin shipping the Auro package worldwide during the second quarter of 2014.

Auro 3D enables multichannel three dimensional audio (height and width) playback in a wide range of speaker configurations up to 13.1. Typically an Auro-3D deployment would comprise two conventional 5.1 layouts stacked one above the other, with perhaps a ceiling mounted Voice of God for good measure. Ciaran Doran, Group CEO of Datasat, describes the new processor as "a breakthrough in immersive sound for high end home cinema." Early iterations of the processor have been on demonstration at Genesis Technologies.

The sound system has been used on 35 theatrical released in 2013, and according to Auro 3D CEO Wilfried Van Baelen, is now being employed by several major Hollywood producers. Speaking at the CEDIA Region 1 AGM, Van Baelen promised a big push for the new format in 2014, then revealed that Auro was planning to launch its first own-branded processor. While native Auro 3D mixes are conspicuous by their absence in consumer software, the system can be used to upscale conventional DTS HD Master Audio Blu-ray mixes.

Datasat will be showing its upgraded RS20i processor on stand 5-U110 at ISE, along with its range of power amplifiers. For more on Datasat Digital Entertainment, visit our partner page here. For more on ISE 2014, visit our partner page here.
