"Experience conservation through multimedia" at the Zoo Leipzig, GER

Nestled within the historic big cats' house, this innovative immersive experience at Zoo Leipzig serves as a gateway to understanding species conservation and the zoo's unwavering commitment to protecting highly endangered primates in Vietnam. At the heart of this captivating journey is a 360° video projection, seamlessly complemented by a surrounding array of over 30 loudspeakers. Each of these speakers is individually driven and controlled by the IOSONO processor. The technical integration is expertly managed within the show control and maintenance routines, skillfully overseen by ils Medientechnik, making the IOSONO processor a reliable tool for creating the immersive atmosphere the zoo aimed to provide, delighting its visitors. For an added layer of authenticity, a dedicated object-based audio mix incorporates original field recordings from the vibrant landscapes of Vietnam, alongside exclusive music compositions by Lukas Taido. These elements combine to make this project truly distinctive and an unforgettable experience. Explore this remarkable project at Zoo Leipzig, where technology and conservation converge to educate and inspire.

"A special highlight is the main room: a room-filling immersive experience that is one of its kind in the whole of Germany: impressive 360° projections on all of the walls, the ceiling and the floor immerse you in our commitment to species protection for highly endangered monkey species in Vietnam. The film scenes are accompanied by a specially composed and arranged soundtrack. You will go on a boat trip in Halong Bay, which is where you will find Cat Ba Island. There you will meet the last remaining and critically endangered golden-headed langurs." (Zoo Leipzig)

Right at the heart of spatial audio systems and your driver to fully immersive user experiences

The ENCIRCLED Spatial Audio Processor is our main hardware product with fully integrated IOSONO inside software. Your powerful solution for real-time rendering of object-based immersive audio content to virtually any loudspeaker layout of up to 192 channels In & Out across venues.

The patented algorithm is an optimized and adaptive wavefield synthesis implementation with a unique multilayer approach for elevated speaker arrangements. In addition to the high quality rendering the software is packed with useful features for easy setup, system tuning, multi-room configurations and flexible integration into any AV system design.




The Spatial Audio Workstation (SAW) is our production tool for the creation of immersive audio content in a fully implemented, object-based workflow.

The software is an exclusive plugin for Steinberg’s Nuendo DAW. A mixing project can consist of up to 64 simultaneous objects. An internal rendering mode supports a large number of common 2D multichannel speaker layouts (up to 8.1) without the need of additional hardware. The external processing mode works in combination with an IOSONO inside audio processor and allows for real-time rendering to any 2D/3D speaker arrangement. The application runs in a single window to provide user-friendly interface for positioning, grouping, movement and automation of sound objects within the immersive environment.




The IOSONO Anymix Pro plug-in is a flexible audio processing tool that can be used as a substitute for the standard surround panner that comes with your DAW or as a powerful “upmix / fold down” processor to convert any given audio source material into the desired output format ranging from mono to 8.1.




The distribution in Europe for a Spatial Audio Processing hardware with integrated IOSONO inside software will be handled directly by us. Please get in touch via business@encircled-audio.com.
