    HARMAN’s Studer and Sonic Emotion Present 3D Speaker Management Systems—Mixer Integration Concepts Paper at Tonmeistertagung Conference

    Studer Associate Director of R&D, Peter Glaettli and Etienne Corteel of Sonic Emotion presented a paper titled, 3D Speaker Management Systems – Mixer Integration Concepts last Sunday, 23 November, at the Tonmeistertagung conference in Cologne.

    The paper addresses the benefits of 3D speaker management systems over traditional systems, the differences between these systems, practical implementation practices for 3D speaker management systems, and more.

    “At Studer, we firmly believe 3D sound control has a place in many applications, beyond the highly niche projects where special spatial effects are required,” Glaettli said. “To that end, it’s important to educate the industry on the best ways to implement 3D speaker management systems, while also showing that Studer is integrating with third-party systems, which is key to widespread implementation in the future.”
