The Berlin-based manufacturer, Holoplot, has been nominated for the InAVation Award 2019 in the technology category “Museums and Attraction” with its wavefield synthesis sound system series ORION. Holoplot’s sound system is the only audio product for this category.
The ORION Series from Holoplot reduces the operating costs while enhancing the audio experience at museums and attraction installations. Contrary to conventional loudspeakers, that are often installed at various locations to provide dedicated content for a specific area, the sound system ORION is deployed in a central install. Up to 16 different virtual audio sources can be positioned in the room to create isolated sound zones or points. At each of these zones or points, different audio content can be routed and the visitor can walk freely in the room, being exposed to the content of interest only.
This level of control is possible due to the unprecedented audio beam steering capabilities. The beams position can be controlled vertically, horizontally, and obliquely. Combined with the functionality to synthesize planar and concave wavefronts, the sound engineer is given a toolset to design isolated sound fields and reduce reflections in reverberant rooms. This can enhance audio quality at the listener’s position significantly.
What makes the InAVation Awards different from other awards in the industry is that the entire AV industry is involved. Consultants, system integrators, end-users, and distributors submit their votes.
