Multichannel audio/video installation exclusively for MostWanted:Music conference 2019 at Alte Münze in Berlin, Germany

Thirty speakers on different elevation levels, driven by an IOSONO wave-field synthesis audio system deliver Lukas Taido's music and soundscapes, situated somewhere between digital Musique Concrète and contemporary Electronica, and melting tightly linked with Lars Ullrich's abstract, multilayered visual worlds, on a 150-foot, curved screen - creating a highly immersive and intense audiovisual experience.

"Surrounded by projections and speakers, visitors experience the rhythmic, tonal, visual and structural interaction within the duality and co-existence of the two Hemispheres from an inner perspective..." Lukas Taido (Audio/Concept/Initiator)




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)




A "City Version" by the Staatsoper Hamburg at the 20th anniversary of Shanghai Grand Theater, China

Together with our long term partners Full Dimension (CN) for concept design, system integration and Sounds & Motion (AUS) for content live mixing the creation of an exceptional immersive sound experience was made possible. Using 100+ loudspeakers and the flexible feature of the IOSONO technology to create sound fields for multiple listening areas all members of the audience had the chance to sit in the best seat. Additionally manual soloist tracking created those memorable moments and pristine sound images.

"...Shanghai Grand Theatre is a history maker in terms of sound technology interpretation of outdoor performance... This is not only an immersive experience that shortens the distance between actors and audiences, but also a perfect fusion of art and technology." (Full Dimension)

IOSONO inside is our software solution for real-time rendering of object-based immersive audio content to virtually any loudspeaker layout of up to 128 channels In & Out.

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 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 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.
