PL+S 2019: Holoplot to reveal wavefield synthesis developments

The brand will be presenting at the Immersive Technologies Forum and CAVIS seminar series

Berlin audio company Holoplot will present wavefield synthesis (WFS) developments and contribute to the Immersive Technologies Forum and CAVIS seminar series at Prolight + Sound 2019.

This will include a demonstration of 3D directivity control, soundfield tailoring, real-time control, multi-beam configuration and localisation, in Hall 8, stand C40.

Holoplot’s current product range is based around the Io audio module, the Eta processing core and the Orbit software interface.

The technologies will be highlighted during an Immersive Technologies Forum session on April 3, from 14:00 to 15:00 (Consens Room, Hall 4, Level C). In this presentation, Holoplot will examine the possibilities generated by designing immersive soundscapes using a central loudspeaker array and the harnessing of room reflections. The company will highlight the creative opportunities of 3D directivity control and the precision that is offered by being able to accurately position sound objects in space.

On another note, following last year’s successful premiere of the Immersive Technologies forum, it has now been extended to four days.

In a CAVIS seminar, Holoplot will address the latest developments in the fixed installation solutions market. Taking place on April 4, from 14:00 to 15:00 (Entente Room, Hall 4, Level C), the brand will discuss the importance of speech intelligibility and uniform coverage to a wide variety of applications. The company will show how its wavefield synthesis technologies can deliver these qualities over long distances and describe how STI values can be maximised throughout the entire audience space.

“Our systems provide a tool which introduces a new level of control, flexibility, and precision, especially when it comes to the creation of intelligible speech or mind-blowing, unique immersive audio experiences,” said Roman Sick, CEO of Holoplot.

“With the seminars, we want to educate the industry about the capabilities of our technology,” added Sick. “Our technology works differently than conventional loudspeakers, delivering unique audio experiences with respect to speech intelligibility, immersive sound design, and multi-content delivery. Prolight + Sound is an important show for us to share our insights and discuss the industry’s application challenges with other professionals.”
