A multi-sensory experience at Newfields - A place for nature & arts. The largest permanent install of the next generation immersive art from Grande Experiences

The immersive audio experience at THE LUME - Newfields, Indianapolis (USA) is a global success story despite the pandemic situation limiting our lives in the „new normal“. With this first permanent install of the next generation immersive art from Grande Experiences at Newfields we deployed an IOSONOinside processor into an impressive and complex audio system completing the full multi-sensory experiences with true spatial audio in all areas of the exhibition. Using the unique spaces feature of IOSONOinside the sound design can not only be shared between different sites globally, but can also be rendered individually across a multi-room exhibition such as the Newfields installation. At THE LUME - Newfields 100+ JBL speakers and subwoofers have been installed overhead across 5 individual galleries all benefiting from real-time rendering of pre-produced content perfectly matching its specific geometry.

At Grande Experiences, Sounds and Motion, AID and ENCIRCLED we are super happy how it all worked out and thrilled to see that global partnership still happens, leading to innovative great results despite the limiting times we are facing today.




Dream Flyer attraction at Tokyo Disney Sea, Japan

At Tokyo Disney Sea Resort guests enjoy the latest edition of Walt Disney Imagineering flight motion simulators. Based on the popular attraction "Soarin' Around the World" (CA, USA) this is the third attraction of this kind at Disney Resorts around the world that uses the IOSONO technology for the most immersive audio experience. 32 loudspeakers spread behind the giant curved screen in 4 vertical layers and a full surround ring create that convincing sound experience to always feel in the center of the action on every seat. Object-based mixing allowed the content creators for a fast workflow and putting the attention to the details of the mix.

"Enjoy a journey over famous landscapes of the world! Nestled in the hills of Mediterranean Harbor, the Museum of FANTASTIC FLIGHT is dedicated to humankind’s enduring dream of flying." (Tokyo Disney Resort)




IOSONO fixed install in a newly built dome at West Valley College in San Francisco bay area

This beautiful new-built dome hosts a great sounding 32-channel IOSONO system in three layers for playback of multichannel audio formats of all kinds and is ready for producing its own IOSONO object-based mixes. IOSONO is fully integrated into the show control in this hybrid planetarium system for teaching astronomy in the most modern ways possible and making college events an unforgettable experience.

Thanks to the College's trust in ENCIRCLED technology and services we are very happy to get this project across the finish line despite the difficult times in 2020/21. The people in the astronomy department are truly committed to this project and their long breath must be greatly acknowledged!

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 128 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. Our selected partner network worldwide provides you with a Spatial Audio Processing hardware and fully integrated IOSONO inside software as well as content production, services for regional system planning and support.
