Lexicon processor immerses cinemas in sound

AUTHOR: Inavate

Harman's Lexicon has introduced its QLI-32 Quantum Logic Immersion cinema processor, designed to deliver up to 32 channels of surround sound.

The QLI-32 interfaces with a theatre’s media source and existing cinema processor to provide left, centre, right, surround, rear and height channels, via Harman’s proprietary Quantum Logic Immersion surround-processing technology.

It provides up to 32 channels of immersive surround-sound audio over BLU-link from any mono stereo, 5.1- or 7.1-channel program material.

Signal processing techniques analyse the acoustical information in the audio mix and re-create a full three-dimensional sonic environment with width, depth and height by identifying and positioning objects in the sound field.
