The Swedish digital audio company Dirac and, the French home theater equipment manufacturer StormAudio, have announced the availability of the new Dirac Live Active Room Treatment (ART) add-on in all StormAudio processors.
“The Dirac and StormAudio teams have worked very hard on the release of the ART add-on, and we are excited for our StormAudio ISP users to experience the technology for themselves now,” says Olivier Thumerel, CEO, StormAudio.
“With superb feedback from audiences at all our active demos over the past months, and our participants on the beta program, we know that this will be a revolution for home calibration — digital post-processing can enable dramatic improvements of the user experience, with no further hardware investment required.”
StormAudio’s ISP platform was designed to be future-proof, with modular and flexible upgradeability by hardware and software. On this foundation, the ISP platform can fully support the powerful Dirac Live Active Room Treatment tool.
Dirac Live Active Room Treatment is now available on all StormAudio processors and AVRs through the 4.5 firmware update. It is included at no additional fee on all products ordered from January 1, 2023 onward. Products ordered prior to January 1st require a license that can be purchased from Dirac’s website.
“Dirac Live Active Room Treatment represents a true breakthrough in digital room correction by, for the first time, processing audio as a unified system, not individual speakers, to eliminate boomy bass and deliver cleaner, tighter audio in any room,” comments Fredric Tapper, Dirac’s VP of Home & Pro Audio.
“After years of R&D and product development, we’re proud to unleash this breakthrough in collaboration with StormAudio, a fellow audio industry pioneer that shares our commitment to pushing the boundaries of sound. With the launch of Active Room Treatment in all StormAudio processors, a new standard has been set in home theater performance.”
