Linear Acoustic Releases UPMAX:neo

Linear Acoustic has released the UPMAX:neo 2-channel to 5.1-channel surround upmixer is now shipping. Based on the award-winning upMAX 2251 product, the new UPMAX:neo shrinks the footprint to a compact, roadworthy1RU chassis. Additional upmixing choices are added to the original upMAX algorithm for increased flexibility in post production applications. Metadata input is standard, along with GPI inputs to control upmixing.

Features:
• Creates an infinitely adjustable multichannel “surround-field”
• UPMAX and Linear Acoustic-tuned DTS neo:6 algorithm
• Optional metadata generation
• Optional remote volume and mute controls
• Requires only one rack unit of space

The Linear Acoustic UPMAX:neo 5.1 Channel Surroundfield Synthesizer uses proprietary processing to create an infinitely adjustable multichannel signal that is completely downmix compatible. The UPMAX:neo also provides the most effective and compatible solution for integrating legacy two-channel material into today’s 5.1-channel programs.

In addition to the industry standard UPMAX algorithm, the UPMAX:neo also includes a Linear Acoustic-tuned version of the DTS neo:6 algorithm. The unit can be controlled via contact closures applied to the GPIO port or via applied audio metadata. Optional metadata generation allows 5.1 audio and accompanying Dolby-standard metadata to be easily created. The Analog Output option provides eight channels of balanced audio capable of output up to +24dBu. The Remote option gives the user the added convenience of adjusting volume and mute functions via remote control. In addition to metadata generation, future options will include HD-SDI audio and VANC metadata de-embedding and re-embedding.

Available options include an eight-channel monitoring grade balanced analog output with remote volume, mute, and return to reference inputs. Future options will include software remote control, built-in metadata generation and HD-SDI I/O allowing for embedding and de-embedding of audio channels.

Linear Acoustic’s UPMAX:neo is now available. More information about Linear Acoustic UPMAX:neo.
