Whether for live events, theme parks or product presentations – Fraunhofer IDMT provides audio modules for any application scenario. The SpatialSound modules can be individually integrated into existing audio networks and extend existing systems with new sound and 3D audio effects. For the first time Fraunhofer IDMT presents its SpatialSound Toolkit at Prolight + Sound in Frankfurt, March 21 to 24, 2012, in hall 8, booth H20.
The SpatialSound Toolkit from Fraunhofer IDMT provides with its modules and module packages the latest generation of 3D audio technology e. g. for directed sound, scene automation and spatial sound reproduction. "For the first time, our innovative sound concepts and audio tools can be integrated into existing audio networks, mixers or audio processors extending previous functionalities by impressive sound effects, either in single use or combined with each other. This opens up unique opportunities for DJs or large event organizers to work creatively with three-dimensional sound", comments René Rodigast, Head of Professional Audio at Fraunhofer IDMT.
With "SpatialSound Stage" and "SpatialSound Wave", Fraunhofer's modular system offers two directly adoptable module packages for 3D worlds. SpatialSound Stage allows directed sound reproduction and scene automation for stage shows and live events. The audience is totally immersed into the stage action, can follow actor's movements acoustically and always perceive soloists from the right perspective.
SpatialSound Wave is a package for spatial sound reproduction supplied by Fraunhofer IDMT. For stages, conferences, clubs and in entertainment, the audience experiences a naturally immersive sound scenario, where acoustic effects always come from the right direction and distance in any seat.
In addition to these module packages, also individually adaptable modules like a dynamic acoustic room simulation can be integrated into audio platforms according to requirements and the acoustics of the location. Whether conference center or showroom – the audience experiences the acoustic impression of a great concert hall. And even music reproduction and intelligibility of speakers can be significantly improved by integrating these modules.
Meet us in hall 8 at booth H20 and experience music scenarios with even better sound and impressive 3D sound effects created by the SpatialSound Toolkit.
Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau conducts applied research in the field of digital media and works on leading projects and topics in the field of audio-visual applications. Besides sound solutions for home and professional users (e.g. IOSONO® Wave Field Synthesis technology) software technologies for analysis and characterization of multimedia content as well as audio-visual applications for medical engineering are being developed. Furthermore interactive AV applications for entertainment and knowledge management and the design of architectures for digital online-distribution are in the institute’s research focus. The Fraunhofer IDMT realizes innovative scientific results through prototypes and applicable solutions which come up to customer and market requirements in close cooperation with partners in economy, culture and science. Since 2008, Fraunhofer IDMT has two new branch labs. The department Children’s Media, based in Erfurt, works on the development of innovative computer based program and edutainment formats for children and adolescents. The new project group Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology, based in Oldenburg, researches topics of audio system technology concerning the fields of health, transportation, multimedia and telecommunication.Contact Person:

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
