Modulo Pi announces Kinetic media server and L-ISA compatibility


Modulo Pi has announced the full compatibility of L-Acoustics’ L-ISA immersive hyperreal sound technology and the Modulo Kinetic media server, with bidirectional interactions now available between the video toolbox and the spatial audio technology.

L-ISA immersive hyperreal sound technology is an object-based approach to designing, mixing and processing sound in a multidimensional space, being permanently installed in experimental venues such as Artechouse and the Spyscape museum. 

Modulo Kinetic originally launched in 2016, with a new version of Modulo Kinetic launching with full integration of the L-ISA technology in January 2020. The spatial audio system is included in Modulo Kinetic’s library of preloaded devices, allowing bidirectional interactions between the two systems. 

L-ISA can be directly controlled from Modulo Kinetic, enabling spatial audio control from the media server’s timeline sequencer, 3D engine, nodal editor or embedded show controller, with the L-ISA system able to send data to Modulo Kinetic such as audio source pan, width, distance and elevation to interact with media encoded in the media server or generative content created with Kinetic’s 3D engine. 

As well as compatibility with the Modulo Kinetic media server, Modulo Pi’s KineMotion tracking module has become a certified tracking system for L-ISA, being available as an option for Modulo Kinetic to offer automatic sound source positioning when working with L-ISA.
