Yamaha Nuage Supporting Dolby Atmos® Exclusively Previewed At ProLight+Sound 2016

Apr, 2016

The forthcoming support for Dolby Atmos® by Yamaha Nuage will bring a whole new level of realism to audio produced on the system. At ProLight+Sound 2016, exclusive preview demonstrations will show how a wide range of audio production facilities will benefit from the addition of Atmos to Nuage.

Dolby Atmos transports the listener ‘inside’ a soundscape, making for a much more lifelike aural experience of films and video games. Adding a height dimension to the usual two-dimensional envelope of surround sound, it achieves this by sounds existing as individual entities that are precisely placed and moved in a truly three-dimensional space. Atmos also has musical applications, giving listeners a unique experience of any artist or band. And with an ever-increasing number of cinemas, home systems and portable devices capable of delivering Atmos sound, demand for production is only going to increase.

Steinberg, working in conjunction with Dolby Laboratories, is collaborating with Yamaha to realise the forthcoming support for Atmos by Nuage, further enhancing its appeal to post-production facilities, games producers and recording studios. Yamaha is providing an exclusive preview of this significant development at ProLight+Sound 2016, with the company’s Nuage specialist Christoph Stepan demonstrating the system on the Yamaha stand.

Also on show will be the NIO Dante audio interfaces, which are now available separately from the Nuage system at a new, lower price point. Precision engineered to offer unprecedented natural sound quality, the NIO Dante-based I/O interfaces deliver mastering-grade audio and unrivalled flexibility in any audio I/O application.

Each housed in a 2U standard rack chassis, the range comprises the NIO500-A8D8 (8 Channels AES / 8 Channels analogue I/O), NIO500-A16 (16 channels analogue I/O) and NIO500-D16 (16 channels AES I/O). Simple to integrate with existing hardware, the units allow the ideal configuration of analogue and digital I/O to be built, with up to 128 channels on a single network cable and near-zero latency monitoring as standard.

“The NIO series is a series of cost-effective, but exceptional quality standalone audio interfaces. When used with Steinberg’s Nuendo DAW they deliver truly integrated monitoring and they can be used with any system where high quality conversion to and from Dante is needed,” says Christoph.

Yamaha is exhibiting at Hall 3.1, Booth E50 at ProLight+Sound 2016, which takes place at Frankfurt Messe from 5th - 8th April 2016 and Hall PH.V, Stand A01 at MusikMesse, which takes place at the same venue from 7th - 10th April 2016.
