PL+S 2017: Out Board to unveil TiMax SoundHub VR
Company moves to support demand for tightly-synchronised, low-latency immersive audio in multimedia VR content.
This year’s Prolight + Sound will see Out Board showcase a pair of new entertainment technology offerings across two stands.
On stand A30, Hall 4.1, Out Board is set to debut the TiMax SoundHub VR playback, spatial audio and showcontrol variant, which marks the company’s move to support demand for tightly-synchronised, low-latency immersive audio in multimedia VR content for the theme-park ride-car and experiential-exhibit marketplaces.
Configured in a compact half-depth 2U rackmount chassis, the TiMax SoundHub VR playback server, spatial processor and showcontrol hub features 16 playback tracks and analogue, Dante or MADI outputs, 12-24VDC or 90-230VAC PSU options, plus the new TiMax Portal MicroServer multimode showcontrol hub and custom GUI server.
Out Board’s Dave Haydon and Robin Whittaker will also be previewing a new adaptable spatial audio rendering resource for TiMax. The StageSpace visual programming interface automatically configures delay-matrix localisation objects for the TiMax2 SoundHub spatial audio processor and TiMax Tracker stage tracking automation system.
For its second year at Prolight + Sound, Out Board’s PAT test joint-venture associates Data Strategy will demonstrate the PAT4 Test Processors, CAB5 Cable Test and RCDT Test modules with their QC-Check PAT automation and logging software, which is rapidly being adopted by a growing number of production rental companies and venues of all sizes.
Data Strategy can be found in Hall 3.0 on stand G90.
