prgPRG deployed L-ISA technology for Archer’s Maker reveal in Los Angeles
USA - PRG has incorporated L-Acoustics L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound Technology into its Los Angeles Virtual Production Studio. This advanced audio technology pairs with PRG’s extended reality setup to offer an array of tools for multi-sensory immersive experiences.
In addition to the L-ISA technology permanently available in the Los Angeles studio, which includes an immersive loudspeaker configuration and processing hardware, the new L-ISA Studio software suite, launched in April, makes it easier for sound creators to design immersive audio with 3D control interface and audio processing, all available on a personal computer. Creators can use L-ISA Studio software from any computer, listen to and prepare their content in binaural sound using headphones, and then bring their creation to the PRG Los Angeles Virtual Production Studio where it will seamlessly translate to L-ISA hardware.
"We're excited to see PRG be early adopters of the L-ISA technology and the L-ISA Studio software suite," says David Brooks, L-Acoustics application manager, touring liaison, USA and Canada. “The enhanced streaming capabilities put PRG’s Los Angeles Virtual Production Studio far ahead of other studios in offering the most intuitive tools for immersive live and streaming performances.”
This method for sound mixing expands the possibilities of spatial audio creation with ‘a host of powerful tools for sound creators’.
“Adding L-ISA technology to PRG’s toolbox sets us apart from other production studios, and I’m excited to see and hear the outstanding creative content that will flow from our LA studio,” said Jeroen Hallaert, PRG's vice president, production services.
PRG is the first to officially pair these capabilities in a studio setting, but productions are also able to utilise this technology in touring and at venues.
On 10 June at Hawthorne Hangar in Los Angeles, PRG and L-Acoustics worked with aerospace company Archer to deploy binaural sound for the company’s reveal of its all-electric vertical take-off and landing aircraft, Maker.
“In this deployment, the audience in-person and those at home wearing headphones both experienced live xR and binaural sound in unison, which is a real multi-sensory trip. It gave viewers the same feeling as a theme park ride,” explains Hallaert. “We were able to do that because, beyond the most advanced gear, we also provided technicians that have the expertise in content, lighting, and tech to make these tools work seamlessly together."
