World Premiere at Prolight & Sound: First Mixing Console with integrated SpatialSound Wave 3D Sound


At Prolight & Sound, starting on Wednesday April 15 in Frankfurt, Fraunhofer IDMT and Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup will be presenting the new ’POLARIS evolution’ mixing console, which features Fraunhofer’s SpatialSound Wave technology.

With SpatialSound Wave (SSW), integrated in the new ’POLARIS evolution’ mixing con-sole by Salzbrenner, sound engineers will have the opportunity to work with 3D sound objects in a highly individualized and personalized manner.

The new Salzbrenner Polaris Evolution mixing console with integrated SpatialSound Wave technology by Fraunhofer IDMT allows object oriented sound reproduction.

The worldwide first mixing console with SSW 3D audio technology can be used for mixing live and playback sound as well as for producing impressive shows. SpatialSound Wave can be integrated as an add-on solution with practically any multimedia system available on the market.

How SpatialSound Wave works together with Salzbrenner’s ’POLARIS evolution’ mixing con-sole will be demonstrated at the convention. System control is either automated or can be done in real time via an intuitive user interface.

SpatialSound Wave is based on Fraunhofer’s many years of experience in 3D sound technology, such as Wave Field Synthesis.

Instead of traditional channel based sound engineering, the system is object oriented, creating an entirely new quality of true-to-life spatial sound reproduction – regardless of the listener’s position and the loudspeaker arrangement. Due to its great setup flexibility, the system is ideal for being used for live events, theaters, and broadcast

Please stop by booth C90 in Hall 8, and inform yourself about the great acoustics of the system, and how it can be easily integrated with existing product environments. The sound will be delivered virtually invisibly with the latest generation of Fraunhofer’s high-end, extremely small-sized (23x37x2,5 cm) planar speakers.

On April 17, Fraunhofer’s booth will be hosting a one-hour workshop entitled »Produc-tion mit SpatialSound Wave«, in the course of which experts from Salzbrenner Stagetec Mediagroup will be demonstrating the integration of the Fraunhofer sound system with the POLARIS mixing console.

Furthermore, Stefan Zaradić, the CEO of Zaraproduction, a renowned recording studio located in Munich, will speak about his experience as a producer and sound designer using SpatialSound Wave. Zaraproduction has been using their own SpatialSound Wave system since the end of 2014. Mr Zaradić will also be presenting some of his work to the audience. Anybody interested in SpatialSound Wave is welcome to join the workshop (starting at 2 p.m.)!

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
