We have developed audio systems and sound content for multiple immersive experiences from large-scale international theatrical events, arena concert events and small scale projects.
We have a unique understanding of the theory of immersive and spatial sound but also have the practical experience of having designed, operated and created content for these systems.
SERVICES AND EXPERTISE
CONTENT CREATION AND PRODUCTION
Content creation and recording of music specifically for reproduction on an immersive audio system requires unconventional production techniques that are specific to the loudspeaker system to deliver the artistic intent.
We work with composers and musical directors to develop production techniques and workflows that ensure precise show implementation.
IMMERSIVE SYSTEM DESIGN & QUALIFICATION
Our design process begins with an understanding of the creative intent of the show / experience. We use our knowledge of the human hearing system to place loudspeaker sources in as few locations as possible but as many as needed to precisely create the experience required to support the creative intent.
We use a combination of proprietary modelling tools from manufacturers and our own qualification tool that maps time and level differences across a space.
3D SPATIAL AUDIO MIXING SYSTEMS
We have experience with all major spatial audio mixing platforms including L-ISA, Soundscape, TiMax, Astro Spatial Audio, Iosono and the Pyramix panner on projects of any scale from stadium special events to small theatrical installations.
Our designs nominate the most suitable mixing platform to meet the specifics of each project and redundancy is implemented when affordable.
SHOW CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR SYNCHRONISED PLAYBACK
Our show control and replay system design concepts have been used on major events for many years including multiple Olympic Games Ceremonies since Athens 2004.
We use various systems including Fairlight, Ovation and Qlab to deliver robust and flexible playback systems of any scale.
AUTOMATED PLAYBACK AND SHOW CONTROL
Many of our immersive experiences, such as Dinosaurs in the Wild and Ninjago - Realm of Shadows, are shows of fixed programming that need only be triggered to commence the full show sequence.
In these cases we use Ovation or Qlab coupled with AMX, Crestron or Q-SYS control systems to provide a simple user interface to manage a complex set of synchronised systems.
TURNKEY CREATION AND DELIVERY
Given the complexity and inter-dependencies of many ambitious immersive experiences, we also offer a turnkey service whereby we provide all elements of sound and show control from content creation to supply, installation, programming and show implementation, including control systems to manage the whole experience.
49TH UAE NATIONAL DAY
The 49th UAE National Day was staged on a natural body of water in a mangrove national park. The immersive experience featured a 36.1 loudspeaker arrangement using 300 loudspeakers.
2018 & 2019 European Tour
This feature discusses the introduction of the L-ISA platform into the touring system for Morricone and how it enhanced the performance.
46TH UAE NATIONAL DAY
That a look at the system design and development of one of the first 360-degree L-ISA environments ever deployed. The system consisted of hundreds of loudspeakers in a 36.1 configuration.
THE FOUNDER'S MEMORIAL
The Founder's Memorial is a beautiful monument in Abu Dhabi built as a tribute to Sheikh Zayed. The unveiling of the Memorial was a complex event requiring multiple loudspeaker systems.
DINOSAURS IN THE WILD
Using over 150 individual playback channels to around 200 loudspeakers, Dinosaurs in the Wild aimed to deliver a realistic and believable experience to the guests.
