  • How to design your theater for Barco immersive audio

The Barco immersive audio solution, through its APX AuroMax spatial audio processor , delivers the most realistic representation of standardized immersive audio compatible with the SMPTE 2098-2 immersive audio standard. It is the only immersive audio solution that utilizes both three-layer zones and a balanced mixture of channel and object-based technology.

By leveraging Barco’s spatial sound rendering technology, AuroMax delivers the most realistic immersive audio cinema experience. It adds extra zones to the room, allowing for better placement of specific objects in the mix, regardless of the size of the room.

Building on Barco’s signature surround layer and screen channel configuration, Barco’s optimized immersive audio solution offers a large variety of speaker configurations up to 26.1, also supporting Auro 11.1, classic 5.1. or 7.1, and anything in between.

In this white paper, Tom Bert from Barco introduces the concepts behind the technology that drive the room design and gives guidelines on how to do a proper room design and speaker layout for AuroMax.
