Trinnov received a second EISA Award

The Altitude Platform Earns its Second EISA Award

The European Imaging and Sound Association is a group of 61 specialized magazines from 29 countries across the globe. EISA represents the largest editorial collaboration in the world of consumer electronics and has been celebrating the very best products for over 35 years.

Every year, several expert groups within the association select the best products in several categories.

In 2016, a little more than a year after the introduction of the Altitude32, Trinnov received its first EISA Award, recognizing the achievement of our engineering team in creating what remains today The Reference High-End AV Processor. 

Now, a few years later, Trinnov becomes the first manufacturer ever to receive a second award for the same product line. This is a very meaningful milestone, particularly for its recognition of the importance for today’s products to be built for both performance and sustainability, and its acclaim for how the Altitude platform meets these goals.

Best Product 2020-2021 – Home Theater High-End

Rather than rewarding a specific product as is usually the case, EISA members agreed to review and reward the Altitude Platform in the High-End Home Theater category.

Here is the citation from EISA’s president Paul Miller:

“In the world of home theater, rapid technological change can leave a product playing catch up in just a few years. Not so the Altitude series from Trinnov, where upgrading is built into the DNA of its 16-channel and 32-channel processors. Most recently these premium models have added DTS:X Pro support to their 3D audio arsenal, and a revised HDMI board to enhance connectivity and streamline operation. Performance remains best-in-class, too, thanks to professional-grade speaker calibration and bass management, while system designers benefit from remote access and control. State-of-the-art today, but designed to evolve with your needs tomorrow, the Altitude platform is worthy of high praise.”

Successfully combating obsolescence

This award is unique in that it recognizes the accomplishment of Trinnov Audio over a period of 5 years, starting when the platform upon which the Altitude32 was built received its first EISA award in 2016. The Altitude products have been continuously upgraded and improved, enabled by our revolutionary software-based platform, with multiple major updates delivered at no cost to all Altitude owners every year.

As such, all of our customers received the following features as free updates dating back to the original introduction of the Altitude:

2015: Auro-3D decoding and upmixing is added

2016: DTS:X is available on the Altitude before any other product

2017: The Altitude becomes the first Roon-Ready High-End Home Cinema Processor

2018: Bass management is significantly improved, offering yet to be matched possibilities

2019: Trinnov introduces an Easy Setup Wizard and extends the product warranty from 3 to 5 years, retroactive

2020: After a year of close collaboration with the DTS engineering team, DTS:X Pro is officially released and remains available only on the Altitude platform

Over this period, Trinnov Audio has not only maintained its significant technological advantage over the competition but actually further widened that technological gap by pushing the boundaries of immersive audio. Highly notable, our most recent achievement is the introduction of DTS:X Pro to the market, single-handedly carried out by our engineering team, working with DTS.

We are proud to announce we will continue to push the boundaries with additional updates coming this year and more to come well into the future. In September, we will indeed introduce a unique Object Viewer for Dolby Atmos soundtracks that allows our users to monitor in real-time the way sound objects move through the room.

For too long, Home Theater enthusiasts who wanted to own the best had to renew their processor every 3-4 years. With the Altitude platform, this is no longer the case. We hope that other manufacturers will follow this path, creating products that are more sustainable and delivering higher long-term value to customers.

DTS:X Pro available to all Trinnov Altitude owners very soon

It is with great pleasure that we announce our completion of the full DTS:X Pro certification.  We have received official authorization from our partner DTS to publically release a new software version for the Altitude32 and Altitude16 home theater processors today.  This software will be available to current and future Altitude owners, free of charge, in the next few days. 

This new version will enable all our customers to unleash the potential of DTS:X with additional discretely rendered channels, all via a simple software update.

We are proud to be the first to release this new technology and to once again offer a unique implementation that goes beyond what all DSP-based platforms can deliver.

Trinnov Enables 48 and 64 Channel Immersive Audio Systems

 

Trinnov Enables 48 and 64 Channel Immersive Audio Systems with the Altitude48 and Altitude48ext

From its introduction in 2015, Trinnov’s Altitude32 has been fully capable of rendering 32 discrete channels. Now, as DSP-chipset manufacturers are finally about to achieve rendering of 16 channels, Trinnov engineering has created a solution to enable even more discrete channels from the Altitude32, expanding the count to 48 discretely-rendered channels by using the Altitude’s 32 analog outputs and its 16 AES digital outputs simultaneously.

This will allow – for the first time – users to experience the full immersive capabilities of Home Atmos, with its maximum 24.1.10 layout, plus an additional 14 channels that enable more possibilities in terms of bass management, multi-amplified speakers, and Trinnov Remapping.

However, the 16 AES digital outputs require an AES multi-channel High-End DAC that performs as well as the Altitude’s own renowned DAC. Trinnov’s solution is the new Altitude48ext. Based on the Trinnov Magnitude32, the Altitude48ext provides 16 channels of AES/EBU input and up to 32 channels of analog outputs, using the same state-of-the-art DACs used in the Altitude32. This ensures perfect coherence in the final rendering and brings the total potential channel count to 64 independently processed channels.

The 48ext (“48 extension”) is much more than just a DAC. It is a fully capable Trinnov unit with the processing power to perform tasks such as implementing and calibrating up to 4-way active crossovers, unlimited bass management, and both third-octave and FIR equalization. Combining the 48ext with an Altitude32 that has the 48 channel option gives users access to 48 discrete channels and as many as 64 independently processed channels, pushing even further the boundaries of what is achievable in a high-end Home Theater.

64 channel system example

The Altitude48ext will be showcased at CEDIA Expo 2018. Availability is expected this fall, with pricing to be announced.
