For those who follow such things, the consumer electronics industry is in the midst of two key tradeshows in Europe, Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) last week in Barcelona, and High End Munich kicking off this week. I had some meetings arranged in Barcelona during ISE, so got a chance to wander the somewhat limited Home Cinema floor for a couple of hours. However, the wider show is concerned with smart AV tech for homes, workspaces and specific industry verticals.

Among the many announcements timed to coincide with either/both shows was StormAudio’s introduction of the ISP Elite MK3 processor. Sporting a new color display and modern design, the French company says the MK3 can decode up to 24 channels of audio and is fully compatible with DCI and Dolby ecosystems, as well as multiple DSP and amplifier platforms. The unit is also IMAX Enhanced certified and can decode all immersive formats including DTS:X Pro.

“With the component shortages we have been experiencing, being able to release this update to our flagship processor is a huge success, and I’d like to thank our team and our key suppliers for the great job they are doing to navigate through this difficult period” said Olivier Thumerel, CEO of StormAudio. “We are very happy to be back at ISE and High End Show Munich and to see our customers and partners face to face again!”

The MK3 uses a Dirac Live bass control module for multiple subwoofers and StormAudio’s own ‘expert bass management’ feature accommodating multiple bass zone definitions and selective bass routing. A 4.3r0 firmware upgrade includes an auto lipsync feature and an HDMI matrix function supporting different ways to use the second HDMI port. Two new multi-room modes allow linking a second HDMI output to a defined audio/video zone and the ability to connect the second HDMI output to another processor or TV set.
