The Ultimate Experience in Immersive Audio

Peerless in performance, configurability and sound quality, the Altitude32 remains the unchallenged reference processor for Immersive home theater systems. Nothing has been left to chance: high-channel count, huge processing power and exclusive patented technologies unleash the full potential of immersive sound, enabling all formats and the widest range of speaker layouts.

Upgradeable by Design

The hardware architecture of the Altitude32, unique among home theater processors, challenges the concept of obsolescence by enabling the integration of new technologies, new features, and product upgrades through a pure software implementation provided at no cost to Altitude owners. This is a truly sustainable product that gets better over time with the introduction of new features and a scalable, modular hardware design that enables easy system expansion up to the full channel counts of home Atmos and DTS:X and to a maximum of 64 outputs.

Its revolutionary hardware architecture runs not on the multiple sets of DSPs found on other processors but instead on a single multi-core Intel hardware platform and TrinnovOS operating system. This enables Trinnov to bring new technologies and features to market months and years ahead of competition.

Product Features


Unique Decoding and Rendering

Dolby Atmos

The Altitude32 remains the only AV Processor on the market capable of decoding and rendering Dolby Atmos Home content in its full 24.x.10 channel count.

It's been capable of doing so since 2015, years before competition.

With the Altitude48Ext and its extra processing power, we can support up to 64 outputs.

DTS:X Pro

In 2019, Trinnov worked closely with DTS to introduce DTS:X Pro to the consumer market.

Altitude owners enjoyed this major upgrade a year before our competitors could offer it.

The Altitude32 is the only processor capable of native rendering and upmixing with DTS's full count of 30.2 channels, delivering the highest spatial resolution with all content.

 

Auro-3D

The founders of Trinnov and Auro-Technologies know each other well, having been at the forefront of immersive sound research and development dating back to the early 2000s.

Auro-3D, up to 13.1 channel configuration has been available on the Altitude32 since 2015. The popular Auro-Matic upmixer is also supported for all inputs.

Immersive Sound Unleashed

In a league of its own, the Altitude32 has no peer when it comes to immersive sound decoding and playback.

Our pure, uncompromised implementation of 3D Codecs, made possible through our own software, enabled us to deliver the full specifications and channel count of both Dolby Atmos
and DTS:X Pro years ahead of the competition.

Altitude owners enjoy a unique feature available on no other product:

The Dolby Atmos Object Viewer provides the user with a real-time view of the location and movement of sound objects in 3D space for all Atmos content.

Step by Step Wizard

 

First-time users will find the Altitude Wizard an invaluable tool for setup and calibration.

This onboard software guides the integrator through the entire process, step-by-step. From configuring the speaker layout, setting up the input and outputs, to the microphone setup and calibration, the Wizard greatly simplifies the process of getting the Altitude up and running. 

Trinnov Optimizer

Our world-renowned Loudspeaker/Room Optimizer is recognized as best-in-class by users and reviewers across the professional, commercial cinema, and high-end home audio worlds. Introduced to the pro audio market in 2006, its revolutionary solution was quickly embraced by many of the most demanding music, broadcast, and post-production sound engineers.

Optimizer technology is now used in nearly 2,000 studios across the globe with nearly 10,000 high-performance installations worldwide.

This same technology, enhanced and refined over the years, is at the heart of the Altitude. To this day, the Optimizer remains the most powerful and flexible calibration system available.

 

Unique Bass Management

The Bass Management solution in the Altitude gives users the most sophisticated tool available for managing low frequencies.

Complete flexibility regarding high and low pass frequencies, filter types and filter slopes is just the beginning. The low frequency content of any channel can be fed to any combination of subwoofers, and there is no limitation to the number of subwoofer channels other than the number of available outputs.

Going further, our unique intermediate bass management system is ideal for immersive systems using smaller height channel speakers. It can redirect low frequencies not just to subwoofers, but from a speaker with limited bass capability to the closest, more-capable speaker, before sending the lowest frequencies to the subs.

Unique Remapping Technology

In real-world rooms, we can’t always place speakers where we should. And in any case, Dolby, DTS, and Auro each have a different idea where they should go. Trinnov’s exclusive, patented Remapping is the only solution.

During calibration, Trinnov’s unique 3D microphone precisely maps the location of each loudspeaker in the room regarding distance, azimuth and elevation. 

When decoding a particular soundtrack, we know the intended placement of each of the various sound elements. Then Remapping, taking the reality of the room into account, ‘remaps’ errant sounds to the proper locations by using adjacent speakers and the principle of stereo imaging.

HDMI Unbound

 

HDMI and its evolving standards continue to create challenges for manufacturers, integrators and end users. Rest assured that the Altitude philosophy of sustainability applies to HDMI.  The Altitude’s modular hardware design ensures that future developments of the HDMI standard will not make the processor obsolete. All Altitudes will be upgradeable to HDMI 2.1.

Today, our proprietary software platform enables users to monitor and analyze all incoming and outgoing HDMI data directly on the Altitude, in addition to providing unique tools that can address HDMI  incompatibility issues.

Remote Access

Through its Paris-based server, Trinnov enables remote access to any processor connected to the Internet.

Integrators can remotely access each processor they have installed, with full control of all parameters, thus eliminating the need to be on site to adjust a customer’s system or to diagnose problems.

In addition, the Trinnov factory support team, based in the United States and France, and acknowledged as among the best in the industry, also has remote access to provide higher-level remote assistance and troubleshooting.

The most awarded sound processor in the industry

The CEDIA Designer

The CEDIA Designer (TCD) is a powerful online design tool that allows integrators and system designers to create not only technically impeccable cinema designs in a matter of minutes, but also a complete set of support documents and aesthetic room renderings.

Trinnov Altitude processors and Amplitude amplifiers are fully supported in the TCD software, enabling designers to integrate the Altitude in the most complex speaker layouts in a matter of minutes.

TCD integrates Trinnov's exclusive recommendation for speaker placement by default.

What Do Others Say?

    This is the benchmark that all other AV processors are measured against, It is the definitive reference to high-end home theater processors. Over the years there has been a handful of products that realy stop me in my tracks and the Trinnov Altitude32 joins that small elite group of industry defining products.

    Besides exceptional audio performances, the Altitude32 is the only processor able to handle immersive formats’ incompatible speaker positions. The level of details of its audio calibration is unequaled. But most of all, it is future-proof. We don’t know yet if we can call it « a lifetime processor, » but it should most certainly accompany its happy owner through cinematic and musical adventures for a very long time.

    KYD has been using Trinnov products on our projects for more than 10 years now and we are very big fans. The high-order, spherical harmonics-based remapping technology has been a great tool to work with. The full support for Dolby Atmos and other immersive formats with up to 32 output channels put the Altitude32 in a class of its own.
