USA - From 13 to 15 April, the NAMM Show will open its doors to visitors from across the globe, who traditionally value the many educational opportunities the show offers in addition to the product showcase.
The Sennheiser Group will put a spotlight on immersive audio in demo room 17400, presenting the latest production tools and technologies from Sennheiser, Neumann, Dear Reality and Merging Technologies. As a partner of NAMM’s TEC Tracks, the group will send immersive audio experts to the TEC Tracks Keynote Panel, and host presentations on immersive production in its own demo room 17400. In addition, Neumann will unveil ‘an exciting new product’.
Immersive audio best practice presentations will be delivered by industry veterans Michael Romanowski, Eric Schilling, Leslie Ann Jones and many more. Between the engineer presentations, guests will be able to experience product demos in Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 set-ups and will get insights into immersive production workflows.
The demo room features an immersive set-up with Neumann monitors and subwoofers (KH 420, KH 310, KH 150, KH 870 and KH 750). Stereo pairs of the KH 420, KH 310, KH 150, new KH 120 II and KH 80 will be available to demo stereo mixes. Merging Technologies have their Anubis, Hapi and Horus interfaces integrated into the set-up.
At the back of the demo room, additional products that facilitate immersive productions are presented, such as the Sennheiser AMBEO VR Mic, the Neumann KU 100 binaural head and the Sennheiser MKH 800 TWIN, which provides the output signals of its dual-diaphragm capsule separately for remote control of the polar pattern in infinite steps. The pattern can be conveniently adjusted at the mixing desk during the recording or even in postproduction, removing the pressure of having to do it right the first time.
Dear Reality will demonstrate spatial productions with an extended immersion using the dearVR PRO spatializer.
Merging Technologies will present its Dolby Atmos-approved VAD Premium Ravenna/AES67 driver, a cost-efficient way to use a Mac as a dedicated Dolby Atmos Renderer workstation in a Dante environment.
