A Simple, Powerful Solution for Installed Sound
ImmerGo is well suited to provide localized and also dynamically moving sounds for museums, art installations and commercial exhibits.
Multiple channels can be localized to different positions in 3D space, and can be moved, to create dynamic soundscapes. Localization control is via a graphic interface on a mobile device or desktop. Localization movements can be recorded.
More than one user can control a multi-channel soundscape, with each user controlling the movement of different channels.
Many choices of Multi-Channel Sound Sources
Soundscapes can play continuously from a DAW or ImmerGo’s own in-built multi-channel media player. The DAW or media player can synchronize to ImmerGo, which will control the localization of multiple sound tracks at user defined times.
Some of the channels in multi-channel DAW files or multichannel Wav files can be ambisonic channels, the number allocated being dependent on the ambisonic order. This means that a dynamic ambisonic soundscape can be generated and within this soundscape other channels can be dynamically localized.
Easy Scheduling of Multiple Soundscapes for Varied, Continuous Playback
Sequences of multi-channel soundscapes can be created via ImmerGo’s Scheduler. Each element of a sequence comprises a multi-channel wav file and a localization file. Each element can be looped multiple times, and the whole sequence can be looped continuously.
To create a schedule, you would:
- Click Add to create a new schedule row
- Choose a wav file from the wav File drop down list
- Choose a localization file from the imm File drop down list
- Type a loop count number in the Loop Count edit box
- Select to loop continuously if you want that
- Click Play
Quick and Easy Physical Configuration
Physical configuration of an ImmerGo system is easy. You need:
- An Apple Mac (eg Mac Mini or Macbook) or a Windows machine with an RME AVB interface
- miniDSP SPK-4P powered speakers
- Ethernet AVB switch(es) – Extreme/Presonus/Luminex
Then plug them all together with Ethernet cables – just need power for the Mac/PC and the switch(es).
Add switches for additional speakers.
You can attach an SPK-4 passive speaker to each SPK-4P powered speaker.
Use N-DAC-2 networked connectors if you want to use other powered speakers, or NPW-2 networked connectors to use other passive speakers.
Graphic Speaker Placement
A graphic configuration page allows you to indicate where each speaker is placed.
The number of speakers and their positions are flexible.
Just click on a speaker, ‘beep’ it to see where it is located, then place it graphically.
