Lancaster, PA (May 29, 2008)–Linear Acoustic has begun shipping its UPMAX:neo 2-channel to 5.1-channel surround upmixer.
“We are pleased to release the next generation of our upmixing product,” said Linear Acoustic founder, Tim Carroll. “Our customers will benefit from the additional algorithm choices, hardware options and the new compact size.”
Based on the UPMAX 2251 product, the UPMAX:neo shrinks the footprint to a compact 1RU chassis. Additional upmixing choices are added to the original UPMAX algorithm for increased flexibility in post-production applications. Metadata input is standard, along with GPI inputs to control upmixing.
Available options include an 8-channel, monitoring-grade, balanced analog output with remote volume, mute and return to reference inputs. Future options will include software remote control, built-in metadata generation and HD-SDI I/O allowing for embedding and de-embedding of audio channels.
