High-end home theatre specialist Trinnov Audio has committed to offering DTS:X Pro as a free-of-charge update to all new and existing owners of Altitude 32 and Altitude 16 processors.

The company will also be demonstrating the immersive format in a purpose-built 15 seat 15.3.10 channel immersive audio theatre in Hall One, stand 1-N100, at ISE 2020, in partnership with co-exhibitors Procella Audio and Kaleidescape.

An Altitude 32 processor and Amplitude 8 power amplifiers form the playback system, along with 28 Procella loudspeakers, Procella amplifiers, a Kaleidescape Strato and a Sony VPL-W5000ES projector.

As Trinnov uses a software-based platform, there’s no requirement to wait for new hardware to support DTS:X Pro, or any hardware change required on site. Available free, the upgrade can be done in under 15 minutes, it says.

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 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.

The Altitude AV processor is the only consumer processor capable of discretely rendering 26 unique channels, says the company. “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.”

For smaller systems, the lower-cost Altitude 16 can render 16 discrete channels. Both models feature Speaker/Room Optimizer and 2D/3D loudspeaker remapping.

The Trinnov ISE demo will feature Trinnov’s new Cinema trailer plus Trinnov’s Music Machine One video, which combines images of an imagined music machine with a dynamic soundtrack designed with multiple, active objects.
