Prolight + Sound 2019: Holoplot returns with focus on WFS developments
Berlin audio company Holoplot will show wavefield synthesis (WFS) developments and contribute to the Immersive Technologies Forum and CAVIS seminar series at Prolight + Sound 2019.
The show, held at the Frankfurt Messe from April 2 to 5, will see Holoplot demonstrate 3D directivity control, soundfield tailoring, real-time control, multi-beam configuration and localisation in Hall 8, stand C40. The company will also participate in the Immersive Technologies Forum and CAVIS series seminar about speech intelligibility.
Holoplot’s current product range, highlighted on its stand during the exhibition, is based around the Io audio module, the Eta processing core and the Orbit software interface.
The technologies will be highlighted during an Immersive Technologies Forum session on April 3, from 14:00 to 15:00 (Consens Room, Hall 4, Level C). In this presentation, Holoplot will examine the possibilities generated by designing immersive soundscapes using a central loudspeaker array and the harnessing of room reflections. The company will highlight the creative opportunities of 3D directivity control and the precision that is offered by being able to accurately position sound objects in space.
Holoplot will also participate in one of the CAVIS seminars (formerly the Manufacturers’ Forum), addressing the latest developments in the fixed installation solutions market. Taking place on April 4, from 14:00 to 15:00 (Entente Room, Hall 4, Level C), the Holoplot presentation will consider the importance of speech intelligibility and uniform coverage to a wide variety of applications. The company will show how its wavefield synthesis technologies can deliver these qualities over long distances and describe how STI values can be maximized throughout the entire audience space.
