New co-operation has been announced with Stagetec to bring the patented Isostem processing to the company's audio network systems. The upmix and downmix algorithm was developed by Dspecialists and will be licensed for Stagetec's Nexus system. It will be available on a new DSP board.
Isostem is an upmix system that generates a fully adequate surround sound from stereo signals in realtime and is therefore especially suited for use in broadcasting, studios and post production. Dspecialists claimed it is the only upmix system that is fully compatible with stereo, delivering a surround stem that downmixes exactly to the original stereo.
The Isostem function in the Nexus system will be equal to the Isostem hardware Live version, which works with pre-defined factory presets. Individual presets can be created with the hardware version expert and imported to the Isostem plug-in in the Nexus.
