TiMax to showcase new immersive audio advances at PLASA 2019

Stand X64 at PLASA London Olympia 2019 will see major evolutions of Out Board’s TiMax immersive audio and show control systems – released during 2019 and currently in use on many major productions worldwide.

The new HARDCore FPGA dsp engine for the TiMax Soundhub 3D spatial audio platform adds extended delay-matrix memory and smooth dynamic delay-morphing algorithms designed to create totally transparent real-time localisation. HARDCore looks to expand sound designers’ capability to achieve superior panoramic spatial mix reinforcement and immersive 3D soundscapes.

HARDCore has also paved the way for an interactive spatial reverb resource within TiMax, delivering immersive sound design and acoustic enhancement tools.

All-new TiMax TrackerD4 Precision Stagetracking looks to address a current price/performance gap in the market with enhanced levels of speed and precision at a range of cost levels offering serious ROI potential across a wide range of applications.

With the TiMax vocal-localisation processes now controlled and monitored entirely within the TiMax SoundHub’s PanSpace GUI via OSC, the responsiveness of the new D4 also opens up the reality of highly cost-effective lighting and multimedia stage tracking control. As well as OSC, a PosiStageNet interface is being trialled, and TiMax TrackerD4 can now also control other spatial audio processors via OSC.

The new TiMax SoundHub OSC interface also allows generic tablet controllers such as TouchOSC and Lemur to be quickly mapped to TiMax spatialisation, system management and show control functions to provide fully customised touchscreen interfaces tailored to individual performance, presentation and experiential applications.

Out Board’s Dave Haydon will contribute to the PLASA London Seminar program, where on Monday, September 16 at 16:45-17:45, he will pose the question: What’s Immersive? discussing the motives, expectations and realities of immersive spatial audio and show control for live performance, presentation and experiences.
