The Netherlands - At IBC, Sennheiser, Neumann, Dear Reality and Merging Technologies (D50 in Hall 8) will demonstrate immersive production workflows as well as solutions for audio capture, monitoring and processing. Creators and audio professionals of all levels are welcomed to stand.
Four spaces invite IBC visitors to explore state-of-the-art solutions for today’s content production: the immersive presentation zone, active and passive product islands, a Neumann area and a separate Wireless Multichannel Audio Systems (WMAS) zone.
In the immersive presentation zone, which is powered by a 5.1.4 Neumann monitor set-up with nine KH 150 monitor loudspeakers and two KH 750 DSP subwoofers, guests will be able to get hands-on with the Dolby Atmos/immersive broadcast workflows facilitated by the products of Merging Technologies, the latest member to join the Sennheiser Group. The company shows their Anubis, Hapi, Pyramix and Ovation solutions integrated in typical broadcast workflows. In addition to their new Dolby Atmos certified monitoring package, Merging Technologies will show a brand-new interpretation solution.
In the same space, visitors are invited to experience Dear Reality’s dearVR Spatial Connect for Wwise. The software is previewed at IBC for the first time – and enables game designers to develop the audio directly in the VR or AR gaming environment. sessions and will improve the workflow for next-generation XR productions.
Product islands across the stand highlight various aspects of the audio production workflow, such as location-independent monitoring of multichannel formats, which is facilitated through Dear Reality’s dearVR PRO spatializer and dearVR Monitor with any set of good monitoring headphones.
Sennheiser wireless audio solutions centre around the Evolution Wireless Digital family and its Smart Asist app and WSM software. A special focus is on the new EW-DP series for broadcasters (ENG), videographers and filmmakers, and the series’ plug-on transmitter with recording functionality that will be available at the end of October.
On active display are the company’s new MT 48 audio interface and a wide variety of its classical studio microphones, including the BCM 104 and BCM 705 broadcast microphones, the M 49 V, the TLM 102, the revered U 87 Ai and the KU 100 binaural head. Visitors can also try out the Neumann NDH 20 and NDH 30 with music from their own smartphones.
For live audio applications, Neumann’s KM small-diaphragm mics and the MCM Miniature Clip Mic System are on display, including the many dedicated mounting accessories that make MCM such a great choice for close-miking instruments.
In a separate, ‘closed-to-the-public experience space’ just across the aisle (8C47), VIP customers will get demonstrations and first-hand information on WMAS, the broadband wireless technology currently developed by Sennheiser. At the main stand, presentations of the technology will be given on the Friday afternoon and Saturday of the show.
