Ovation2 logo

The Next Generation Of Cinema Processor

Introduced in 2013, the Ovation changed the way engineers calibrate cinema sound over the sound paradigm of Time / Phase / Frequency. Since 2019, the Ovation2 retains all the significant benefits of its predecessor while introducing futuristic enhancements to push the boundaries of cinema sound once again.

Trinnov Performance Guaranteed

To maintain world-leading fidelity, Trinnov is known for having all audio boards designed and manufactured by Trinnov. 

Digital & Analog Outputs

The new Ovation 16/16 version proposes up to 16 channels AES outputs mirroring its analog outputs. With this feature, you can now use an amplifier with digital inputs as well as analog inputs.

Tactile Screens

We redesigned the front panel around 2 touch screens, offering cinema engineers and end users much better ergonomics and a more modern user experience.

Re-designed Power Supply


At the heart of Ovation2, is a brand new power supply designed with the highest requirements in mind to offer better overall performance and stability in compliance with the world's most demanding specs and certifications.

Step By Step «Wizard»


A new step-by-step wizard is now available allowing for much broader configuration choices over an intuitive guided process. Connection to the Ovation has been improved with a web interface as well as the VNC client, no external software needed.

Something Extra


The Ovation and now Ovation2 have been developing an excellent reputation in 5.1 and 7.1 cinemas. The guided calibration process yields an amazing result in a short amount of time.

We also found a growing number of customers looking for something “extra”, and here we unleash the 24 channel version of the Ovation2 processor.

With the extra channels and increased flexibility of the Ovation2, you can dramatically improve the cinematic experience by adding something extra to your 5.1 and 7.1 cinemas: extra subwoofers or speakers.

The Ovation2 have been building quite a reputation in challenging rooms, where dialogue clarity is a key requirement. Ovation2 offers the flexibility to handle alternate content such as satellite broadcast opera, Blu-ray, and DVD, with optional DTS and Dolby consumer decoding.

We are even finding many cinemas using their legacy film processors connected to the 8 channel balanced input to maintain their 35 mm and 70 mm film presentations, which sound better than ever before.

Time, Phase, Frequency

A unique way to align crossovers

Individual driver and system measurements are acquired and analyzed, including the impulse response, delays, and gains.

Trinnov’s unique crossover calibration engine computes the ideal filters, finding the best compromise to improve flatness, directivity, and attack in the overlapping frequency region.

The crossovers in the Ovation2 are very advanced compared to anything else in the cinema market.


Better dialogue quality and overall better system impact

We measure the exact distance/arrival time of each element of the speaker to the reference point, to the hundredth of a millisecond.

This means better coverage with the lobe of the speaker, and with minimal frequency dip at the crossover point, less equalization needed.

    We were offered a demonstration of the Trinnov Ovation and selected our most challenging theatre auditorium acoustically. The results were superb and truly made our theatre perform like never before. It felt so rich and immersive that we purchased our first system on the spot. We have since ordered eight more Trinnov Ovation processors to enhance our premium auditoriums.

    The unique elements of the acoustical optimization techniques from Trinnov enhance and take advantage of the Vive Audio System; It has helped us optimize the performance of our system and helps create the sonic clarity we are trying to achieve, letting you hear the most subtle details of any soundtrack even in large acoustical space.

    The Ovation gives you all the tools you need to analyze your audio system and catch all the pitfalls that tend to get unnoticed when people rely solely on their equipment to tune a room without using their ears. This is the new way of tuning any cinema auditoriums.

    When we first set it up in quad mode, we played Dark Side Of Moon which I have been listening for more than like 40 years, I had never heard it sound that good, and that was in industrial premises with steel walls and concrete floors!

    I was floored we did a side-by-side test, two identical auditoriums where the only change was the ovation: it was day and night, the depth, the performance, the dynamic range everything was just completely different; it was loud and powerful without being painful.

    What I noticed first about the sound coming from the Ovation was the clarity of it and being able to understand every word of every piece of dialogue that was the biggest to me with the bass as well powerful, but just the way was just the way it's supposed to be.
