(September 24, 2021) Earlier this month, we broke the news about StormAudio’s plans to launch an all-new 16-channel processor loaded with trickle-down technologies and hitched with an aggressive price tag. Today, that processor – the ISP Core 16 – officially became official during an online product launch and update conference hosted at its headquarters in France.
The ISP Core 16 crams a tremendous amount of tech into a 3U chassis, much of which is found on the company’s top-end ISP MK2 platform, and sports an all-new color display. In addition to support for Auro-3D and Dolby Atmos, the Core 16 can also decode DTS:X Pro and IMAX Enhanced content. It also offers owners access to Dirac Live (Dirac’s popular Bass Module can be added) and Storm’s exciting new StormXT ambiance channel expansion engine.
Priced at $11,999, the ISP Core 16 is available for preorder now with shipping expected to begin shipping in Q4 2021. For more details, read our earlier coverage here.
Storm is also debuting a much welcomed remote control app for phones. The “StormRemote Mobile” app is compatible with both iOS and Android smartphones and has been completely redesigned with a new responsive interface and easy-to-access settings and functions. And, for its flagship MK1 and MK2 products, the company is adding an AoIP AES67 module that’s fully compatible with DCI and Dolby ecosystems. The module supports up to 32-channels of input and 32-channels of output, and is Ravenna and Dante AES67 compatible. Storm says AoIP installations have full access to ISP features, including 32-channels of DSP processing, multi-theater and multi-zone management, and Dirac Live and Bass Control in any room.
The AoIP AES67 module is available for purchase now. Stay tuned for more exciting news from StormAudio in the coming year.
