HOLOPLOT X1

The world's first Matrix Array

HOLOPLOT X1

HOLOPLOT X1 Matrix Array

X1 is a groundbreaking product series that creates an entirely new category of sound systems. As the logical continuation of two landmark innovations in audio – line arrays and electronic beam steering – the Matrix Array finally brings full control of sound in both horizontal and vertical axes through a matrix of loudspeaker drivers.

The HOLOPLOT X1 series features two Audio Modules, Modul 96 and Modul 80-S . Each Audio Module integrates a powerful DSP, providing individual signal processing to every single loudspeaker driver. By combining the latest technological advancements in DSP algorithms with high-performance sound reproduction capabilities, the X1 series offers a wide range of previously inaccessible sound control capabilities – from covering large audiences homogeneously to creating immersive audio landscapes. X1 further is a truly IoT-enabled system which opens up a world of possibilities for remote control, monitoring, and smart servicing.

HOLOPLOT X1 is the sound system for a new era - enabling you to turn your most ambitious ideas into reality.

The HOLOPLOT Matrix Array enables a new level of sound control.

The matrix arrangement of loudspeaker drivers of different sizes – in a unique multi-layered configuration – enables control over sound propagation across a large frequency range, while providing the SPL and quality desired for high-performance sound reproduction.

The Modul 96 (MD96) is a two-way Audio Module integrating 96 drivers in a two-layered matrix design. The Modul 80-S (MD80-S) is a three-way Audio Module with 80 drivers in its first two matrix layers and a sensor-controlled subwoofer driver in its third layer.

Individual amplification channels for each driver are integrated into the X1 Audio Modules, eliminating the need to provide separate amplification racks.

Each HOLOPLOT X1 Audio Module is equipped with a specialized processing module that integrates the strengths of two worlds.

First, a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 runs HOLOPLOT OS, a Linux-based, distributed audio operating system. Second, a high-performance Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) computes the HOLOPLOT proprietary digital signal processing algorithms for 3D Audio-Beamforming and Wave Field Synthesis. This powerful DSP provides individual control to each of the 96 drivers of the X1 Audio Module and gives full sound field control for multiple beams in both horizontal and vertical directions.

Each Audio Module provides more than 200 input channels fed with either object-based or channel-based audio streams. A routing matrix running on the FPGA downmixes these 200 channels into 12 individually controlled beams. Each beam can be equalized and tailored to taste by 24 parametric EQ bands.

Both left and right Matrix Arrays are optimized to cover the entire audience homogeneously, providing precise sound source localization across the stage for every audience member. Further, room excitation is reduced due to the precise coverage, delivering sound with unparalleled brilliance and clarity.
