The forthcoming Trinnov founders Arnaud Laborie, Sébastien Montoya, and Remy Bruno join forces to focus on research in 3D sound.
First Research In 3D Sound
Laborie, Montoya and Bruno create and test a working high-spatial resolution 3D audio recording and playback chain.
Foundation of Trinnov & First AES Paper
Trinnov presents the first of many scientific papers to the 114th AES Convention in Amsterdam: A New Comprehensive Approach of Surround Sound Recording, preprint 5717.
The first ever 5.1 Recording System
The first ever 5.1 microphone and recording system were presented at the 116th AES Convention in Berlin.
Optimizer Technology & 22.2 Auro / NHK Format
Trinnov presents the Optimizer technology as a surround monitoring solution at the 118th AES Convention in Barcelona. At an AES workshop presented by Wilfried Van Baelen and co-organized with Trinnov’s Arnaud Laborie and NHK’s Kimio Hamazaki, Auro first showed their 2.2.2 format. NHK also presented a 22.2 channel proposal for their 8K UHDTV standard (super Hi-Vision)
Optimizer gets adopted by the Industry
Post-production facilities : Fox Studios (LA), Radio France (Paris) France Television, SWR, ZDF, IRT (Germany), BBC (UK), RTBF (Belgium), Radio Canada, TSI (Switzerland), NRK (Norway), ORF (Austria) Globo TV (Brazil) McGill University Canada), Vienna Fine Arts Academy (Austria), Tonstudio Beusch (Switzerland)…
Trinnov ST2 Pro and ST2 Hifi
At the Munich High-End show, the ST2-HiFi processor makes its debut, bringing Optimizer speaker/room technology for the first time to high-end stereo enthusiasts. At the 128th AES convention in London, the ST2 and MC Pro are launched, making the Optimizer available to a wider range of pro audio applications including music, radio, TV and film production and post-production.
IMM Sound Partnership and Magnitude 32
As home theaters become more sophisticated, Trinnov leads the path towards high channel count systems beyond 7.1. The Magnitude provides up to 32 channels for systems with arrays, multi-amplified speakers and multiple subwoofers. Spanish startup ImmSound launches its object-based 3D cinema format with 30 screens, each based around a 24-channel Trinnov processor. The startup is acquired by Dolby in 2012, and its technology is incorporated into the Dolby Atmos program.
Ovation Cinema Sound Processor
Trinnov launches its highly successful digital cinema processor, taking cinema sound to a new level with Optimizer technology.
Altitude 32 Home Cinema Processor
With the launch of Dolby Atmos, all processors are limited to 7.1.4 channels.The Altitude32 shatters this limitation, establishing a new standard for high-end home theaters with its capability of rendering up to 32 discrete Atmos channels.
Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D formats.
In 2015, at the ISE show in Amsterdam, the Altitude32 demonstrates its cutting edge capability, as the first processor able to demonstrate both the Dolby Atmos and Auro-3D formats.
JBL Synthesis SDP-75
JBL Synthesis and Trinnov partner to produce the top of the line Synthesis processor. Manufactured on an OEM basis by Trinnov, the SDP-75 incorporates most of the Altitude32’s capability, for dedicated use with systems utilizing Synthesis loudspeakers.
Altitude16 & Amplitude8M
Trinnov technology and sound quality become available to a wider audience with the introduction of the Altitude16. With performance essentially identical to the Altitude32 but limited to 16 channels, the Altitude16 makes Trinnov performance more affordable. The Amplitude8m is its ideal companion, an 8-channel power amplifier.
DTS:X / ROON
After being used by DTS as the developmental platform for DTS:X, the Altitude32 becomes the first surround preamplifier to support DTS:X. The Altitude32, Altitude16 and Amethyst are all upgraded to fully-certified Roon Endpoints, providing the best possible music streaming experience. Existing Altitude owners upgrade to Roon through a free download.
Further widening the gap between the Altitude and competitive processors, the Altitude48ext expands the Altitude32’s capability to the maximum 24.x.10 channels of Dolby Atmos, and as many as 48 uniquely rendered channels, even up to 64 processed channels.
Trinnov MC Pro HCC
Trinnov’s multichannel Optimizer and monitoring solution becomes more versatile with the addition of audio over IP through Dante, Ravenna and AES67.
Newly introduced, the next generation of cinema processors further elevates audio performance in commercial cinema installations.
The Altitude32 and Altitude16 are the first processors to support DTS:X Pro, with the Altitude32 able to discretely render the full complement of 30.2 channels. A free download provides the upgrade to all existing Altitude owners.
IMAX Enhanced, with capable displays, enables users to benefit from the enhancements of this dedicated software.
