High-end home theatre specialist StormAudio has unveiled a new processor, the ISP Core 16, together with an AoIP AES67 option for its ISP MK2 range.

The new ISP Core 16 preamplifier/processor has a design based on the award-winning StormAudio ISP MK2 platform, presented in a 3U chassis. The product, manufactured in France, supports up to 16 channels and has the power to decode all the latest immersive formats, including Auro-3D, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X Pro, IMAX Enhanced, HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision, and offers Dirac Live, enabling installers to optimize any speaker in any room straight out of the box.

Control options include apps for iOS and Android, an IR remote control handset and compatibility with all major home automation providers.

The ISP Core also boasts an all-new advanced colour display on the front panel that allows integrators to better troubleshoot HDMI and codec issues directly from the front of the unit.

Due Q4 2021, the processor will sell for €10,000/$12,000 USD. Pre-orders are now being taken throughout the StormAudio global distributor network.

For its flagship ISP MK1 and MK2 platform, StormAudio is expanding the range with the addition of an AoIP AES67 option. This new module makes the processor compatible with the increasing demand for AoIP application in different fields. For residential theatres the processor is fully compatible with DCI and Dolby ecosystems.

The module supports up to 32ch input and 32ch output, based on merging ZMAN technology, and is Ravenna and Dante AES67 mode compatible. AoIP installations have full access to the ISP features, including 32ch DSP processing, multi-theater and multi-zone management, Dirac Live and Bass Control in any room.

As part of a range refresh, the company has also redesigned its cross-platform smartphone app, the StormRemote Mobile for iOS and Android, and previewed feature updates that will be available in Q4 2021 and 2022.

Coming up later this month will be the in-house-designed proprietary StormXT engine, an ambiance channel expander that works in conjunction with existing upmixing algorithms to extract relevant audio signals from nearby speakers and redirect them to silent, unused speakers to make full use of all available speakers.
