Auro 11.1

3D sound technology for digital cinema

Creating a new dimension in cinema sound

Auro 11.1, developed by Auro Technologies and powered by Barco, is the next-generation 3D sound format for the cinema industry. It turns conventional cinema audio into a fully immersive 3D sound experience, with sounds coming from all around and above the listener.

100% compatibility with existing standards

Auro 11.1 improves the audio experience by making intelligent use of the headroom in today's audio standards. This means that the current formats and channels can still be used for content generation and distribution. No changes to SMPTE standards or the DCI specifications are required. As an exhibitor, you will still receive 1 DCP containing the movie content - your Auro 11.1 decoder will simply extract the extra sound information from the existing 5.1 or 7.1 track files, when present.

Commercially viable

Auro 11.1 can easily be installed in new-built or existing theaters, in most cases utilizing components from your current audio system. According to your speaker layout, simply adding height speakers can bring real 3D audio to your theater. Moreover, Auro 11.1 sound processing is similar to, and compatible with, existing set-ups.

3D sound as a unique differentiator

Auro 11.1 creates a unique differentiator - allowing you to maintain your premium 3D revenues and differentiate yourself from the competition.
