d&b audiotechnik has added features to the Soundscape immersive audio system.

‘We are planning ahead and ensuring the Soundscape platform is not only easy to deploy and accessible, but significantly advanced for when it’s possible to have events again,’ says Product Manager, Georg Stummer. ‘The features released today not only significantly increase the predictability and flexibility of Soundscape, but also the ease of implementation from small theatre productions to large, complex applications. We are driven by customer feedback and these updates reflect the markets leading requests, ensuring we can further embed Soundscape as the industry standard in immersive sound and deliver further capabilities to our customers creative endeavours.’

d&b audiotechnik Soundscape updateThe En-Scene software module is an object-based positioning tool for the 64 audio inputs on the DS100 Signal engine. The new routing control brings individual level adjustment and mute for each sound object within each section (Function Group) of a loudspeaker system. This control option adds a flexibility for a range of acoustic settings and multiple audience areas. Sound object routing gives a sound designer or mixer ‘ultimate control’ over the imaging and sound object performance as they relate to each Function Group in a distributed or immersive system.

In addition to sound object routing, the update delivers two function group modes for En-Scene. The new function group modes – Delay line embedded and Outfill embedded – support advanced 360° loudspeaker configurations. This function group update addresses the increasing number of installations that use delay lines for the audience areas within a surround (360) Soundscape set-up. These 360 set ups use these delay lines either to distribute a higher number of small loudspeakers, or to enable immersive sound for larger audience areas.

En-Space room emulation software provides outstandingly simple setup and operation to access premium quality acoustic emulations in an extremely cost-effective way. Suitable for a range of applications from advanced orchestral room treatments to virtual acoustic environments and theatrical effects, En-Space uses the sonic signatures of some of the world’s most acoustically renowned performance spaces and provides individual adjustment parameters to make acoustic dreams a reality, both indoors and outdoors.

With this update, En-Space now supports delay lines delivering room emulation on all loudspeaker function groups in a Soundscape loudspeaker system. The impulse response (IR) assignment has also been optimized for the simultaneous use of multiple instances of the same function group mode [e.g. Delay line] within one loudspeaker system. This development makes it even easier to use En-Space in a wider range of applications with multiple delay lines, from theatres with several balconies to large open-air events.

‘These latest Soundscape software updates are a significant step forward for designing and installing Soundscape systems,’ concludes Stummer. ‘They ensure this immersive technology is designed to cater to the large variety of applications and audiences we expect to see at socially-distanced events this summer season and into the future.’
