StormAudio launches its first 20-channel processor, the ISP 3D.20 ELITE. Equipped with 20-XLR outputs, the unit incorporates the same capabilities as the brand’s 16- and 32-channel models. This includes built-in compatibility with Auro-3D®, Dolby Atmos® and DTS:XTM, Dirac Live® Room Calibration and StormMonitoringTM remote monitoring. Ships April 2018. The ISP 3D.20 ELITE is ideal for theatres that need more than 16-channels, for example those requiring multiple subwoofers or perhaps configured for all 3 Immersive Sound formats. MSRP is set at €13.000 ($16,000 in N. America) which is considerably less-expensive than competitor’s 16-channels ones, says StormAudio’s Managing Director Yves Trélohan.
