The company will present the North American debut of DTS:X Pro in September.
Trinnov has announced plans to demo DTS:X Pro technology at CEDIA 2019. Building upon the standard DTS:X platform, the upgraded tech greatly expands the maximum number of unique channels a user can configure.
"Trinnov has been collaborating with the DTS team since 2014, leading to the first public demo of DTS:X at CES 2015 on an Altitude32 processor," said Arnaud Laborie, Trinnov's co-founder and CEO. "Our unique software-based platform consistently enables us to release new formats before other high-end home cinema processors, which means that our design allows us to deliver the latest technologies to our customers at their earliest availability. This was the case with DTS:X, and by continuing to work closely with DTS, we are now very pleased to be able to introduce DTS:X Pro, as the first licensee of this technology. This accomplishment is yet another example of our commitment to high spatial resolution.”
DTS:X is an immersive audio format developed for cinemas and home theaters which enables object-based sound mixing and playback, including the ability to position effects overhead. While the commercial theater implementation of the tech can support up to 64 uniquely-rendered channels, the consumer version has been limited to 11.1 channels. But with the new DTS:X Pro update, that number will now be greatly expanded upon, offering support for up to 30.2 discrete speaker outputs.
The DTS:X Pro demo at CEDIA 2019 will feature an 11.4.6 channel immersive audio system using Trinnov Altitude audio processors and Control4/Triad speakers in a custom-built HTE acoustical environment. Though an exact release date has not been announced yet, DTS:X Pro support will be available for current Trinnov Altitude32 and Altitude16 processors via a free download later this year.
CEDIA 2019 will be held in Denver, Colorado on September 12 - September 15.
