Barco debuts AuroMax immersive cinema sound

In anticipation of the coming adoption of a standardized format for immersive sound, Barco has developed AuroMax: a system that incorporates support for the placement of “objects” in any immersive mix and the most revolutionary rendering technology available from Iosono.

The momentum continues with more “Auro” movie titles
With an open standard format now imminent thanks to Barco, Auro Technologies and other partners advocating for this new “open” approach to sound, production companies worldwide are embracing the Auro-3D® format due to its flexibility and excellent audio quality. Over 100 films have been released globally in Auro 11.1 – including this summer’s blockbusters “Minions,” “Pixels,” and “Everest” – with even more announcements expected in the coming weeks. 

Platform flexibility for studios
More than 35 leading post-production studios have installed the Auro-3D® Studio System, with more on the horizon because of its ability to offer total freedom to content creators regarding immersive sound development.


The most natural acoustical experience
Auro 11.1 by Barco is designed in accordance with a sound reproduction layout consisting of three layers (traditional surround sound with height and overhead layers), which enables studio sound mixers to move objects around in space to create the most realistic and acoustically perfect experience. Auro 11.1 is fully compatible with existing audio equipment and current workflows. Auro 11.1 is an integral part of the CinemaBarco experience.
