The next generation of high-quality and home audio systems will provide a native immersive experience with the digital integration of Spatial’s real-time immersive audio engine and Steinway Lyngdorf’s unsurpassed processor audio experience.
Spatial, the immersive audio experience company that is reinventing sound and Steinway Lyngdorf today announced at CEDIA Expo a game-changing native digital integration between Spatial’s real-time immersive audio engine and Steinway Lyngdorf’s unsurpassed processor audio experience. The integration promises to provide audiophiles and home-theater system owners with deeper, immersive sound that will not only reproduce the sound too its trust fidelity, but will also transport listeners to another place, moment or time.
“We’ve been working closely with the Steinway Lyngdorf team to break traditional installation constraints,” said Calin Pacurariu, Co-Founder and CEO, Spatial. “Our clients, modern architects, and space designers demand flexible layouts for interior and exterior spaces across estates. Spatial’s new native integration with Steinway Lyngdorf enables designs that otherwise wouldn’t be possible.”
“Spatial’s deep real-time immersion combined with Steinway Lyngdorf’s unparalleled processing performance brings a unique approach to sound in the smart home industry,” said Thomas Birkelund, CEO, Steinway Lyngdorf. “Combing our technical expertise and strengths provides our respective customers a first-of-its-kind product that delivers an unmatched audio experience.”
Crafting Next-Gen Sound Experiences
Spatial Reality engine is built on an object-driven platform that operates on modern Mac and Linux systems. The program is free of rigid requirements like speaker location or the size/shape of a space. Designers using Spatial playback can connect and assign a variety of audio outputs and inputs to prepare believable soundscapes in real-time, and scenes can scale and adapt to each location with natural physics and complex object behaviors that allow for 24:7 dynamic experiences. Spatial Reality runs on a dedicated Mac that is connected digitally via AES67 to Lyngdorf MO-60 2.1 surround sound processor or Steinway & Sons P300 2.1 ultimate performance processor.
The Spatial integration with Steinway Lyngdorf allows for a seamless expansion to the soundfield for all the native processor immersive formats including Dolby Atmos, DTS:X and more. Spatial’s flexible layout approach allows for additional channels in non-traditional locations to fully envelope the space. The approach is particularly well suited for modern indoor and outdoor theater environments.
With the pure digital integration Spatial’s expanded soundfield and real-time soundscapes stay in their native form assuring the highest quality and performance. Native Steinway Lyngdorf technology including RoomPerfect, Boundary Woofers and more are maintained thanks to the fully digital system architecture.
Early customers include estates with non-traditional theater layouts that were demanded by the clients and architects. A traditional approach simply wouldn’t work as the traditional speakers’ locations weren’t possible due to the large opening glass panels to the outside or non-rectangular room designs. In one example, Spatial’s solution coupled with Lyngdorf MP-60 allowed for an expanded soundfield from 27 James Loudspeakers arranged in a discrete manner meeting the clients aesthetic and performance expectations.
“When I first heard the Spatial integration with the Lyngdorf Audio processor I was blown away,” said Claud Glaesner, CEO of Home Theater Professionals. ” I can’t wait for people to experience the rich depth of immersion that’s possible with Spatial and Steinway Lyngdorf.”
“It’s been a pleasure working with the deep audio experts at Steinway Lyngdorf as we developed the native real-time integration of Spatial Reality via AES67 to Steinway Lyngdorf’s processors,” added Michael Plitkins, Co-Founder and Co-der “The standards-based approach allowed us to natively enhance traditional immersive audio formats with Spatial’s computational auditory approach in non-traditional spaces while reducing complexity in system design.”
