The getaway to genuine immersive cinema at home

Following in the tradition of the groundbreaking Altitude32 processor, the Altitude16 brings Trinnov’s award-winning Speaker/Room Optimizer technology, immersive audio capabilities, active crossovers, and unmatched bass management flexibility to a new, slightly smaller form factor with tremendous value.

The Altitude16 is for those who want the very highest performance, and the very highest levels of adjustment to specific circumstances. Those after such heights won’t be disappointed here.

Unleashed HDMI_

The constant evolution of the HDMI standard creates many challenges for manufacturers and integrators. Trinnov’s proprietary software platform not only lets you monitor and analyze all HDMI streams directly from your processor but also offers unique solutions to get beyond HDMI  incompatibility issues.

Step by step Wizard_

The Altitude16 comes with our own set-up software that facilitates the installation procedures for integrators. It guides them through a step-by-step process that defines how to best use available inputs and output channels as well as the desired speaker layouts. This new “wizard” greatly simplifies the initial set up procedure and calibration process.

ALL-INCLUSIVE DECODING PACKAGE_

The standard version of the Altitude16 natively decodes Dolby Digital Plus®, Dolby TrueHD®, DTS Digital Surround® and DTS-HD Master Audio® It also includes all immersive codecs by default so you can experience a new world of immersive sound with the latest technologies by Dolby Laboratories®, DTS Inc®, and Auro Technologies®.

REMAPPING_

Thanks to the 3D measurement capabilities of our microphone, each speaker’s actual placement can precisely be localized in the room regarding distance, azimuth, and elevation. Knowing the intended placement of various sounds within the soundtrack (since we decoded it), we can then “remap” the sound objects from the theory of the soundtrack to the reality of your particular room, using the closest two or three speakers to create a phantom image of the sound where it should be. While 2D remapping deals mainly with the horizontal plane, 3D remapping will manage both azimuths and elevations.

unique BASS Management_

Trinnov provides the most sophisticated solution on the market when it comes to managing low frequencies. With our intermediate bass management system you can, of course, specify how one or more subwoofers will reproduce the lower part of the spectrum for each channel. But it goes further: it even allows you to bass manage the low frequencies of a small speaker to the closest, more-capable speaker. It gives you complete control over crossover frequencies, filter type, slope, and even where the redirected bass will be reproduced.

This processor has a sense of cohesion and transparency that simply amazed me. When you consider the processing and amplification involved, it was always going to sound good, even with the optimization turned off. But as soon as you turn it on, the sound field is transformed, the room itself disappears, and the audio displays a complete sense of realism.

Unique expertise in HOME CINEMA INSTALLATION_

Trinnov has been collaborating for years with some of the most respected brands and integrators in the field, allowing us to work on some of the most ambitious home cinema projects of the past ten years. With the publication of our own recommended speaker positions guide, we are offering our expertise to all integrators, in addition, to our recurrent CEDIA Lectures.

The Professional approach of Trinnov with the Altitude16 allows for maximum sound quality at a fair price, while also letting the user tailor the final character of the system to its personal taste and needs.”

THE CEDIA DESIGNER_

TCD is an online design tool that allows its users to create technically impeccable cinema designs, support documents, and aesthetic renders, within minutes.TCD software supports the complete line of our High-End products, letting you integrate the Altitude in the most complex speaker layouts in a matter of minutes.

THE FUTURE OF IMMERSIVE AUDIO_

The Altitude16 simply can do many wonderful things that no other processor can do because we do not depend on the capabilities of a mass-market DSP chip. We control the signal path from beginning to end.

More importantly, While other companies were waiting for someone else to design a chip that would enable them to add these advanced capabilities. The Altitude software-based design, combined with Trinnov’s advanced understanding of 3D audio, has provided critical capabilities needed for a seamless, immersive audio experience that no other manufacturer has yet been able to deliver to the market.

16 channels of heaven_

The Altitude16 can render up to 16 discrete channels of information and comes equipped with Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D, and DTS:X immersive audio decoders, it supports up to 16 outputs and natively processes high-resolution 24/96 audio, offering four-way active crossovers and no limitation in terms of subwoofer outputs.
