Trusted Linear Acoustic upmixing for the immersive audio capabilities of Next Generation Audio systems.
Linear Acoustic UPMAX ISC

UPMAX ISC builds upon the proven and long-running lineup of Linear Acoustic upmixers, employs our latest algorithm, and adds support for the immersive audio requirements of Next Generation Audio.

UPMAX ISC is designed for live events and broadcasts and can be inserted on a mix bus or placed at the output of the mixing console in the OB truck at the venue for upmixing music, effects, and legacy content not natively presented in an immersive format.

It is equally at home in the airchain at the Network Operations Center (NOC) to ensure all programming – including commercials and interstitial content – is delivered to the viewer as a consistent immersive experience.

Features include:

  • Upmixing from 2-, 3-, 5.1-, and 7.1-channel audio to immersive formats including 5.1.4 and 7.1.4

  • Upmixing to legacy formats including 5.1- and 7.1-channel audio

  • Automatic pass-through of native immersive content

Standard I/O includes 3Gb/s HD/SD-SDI, AES-3, and AES67 to support SMPTE ST 2110-30 and -31 workflows. Quad-Link SDI I/O for 4K video workflows or MADI I/O are available as mutually exclusive options.

Additional features include dual internal redundant auto-ranging power supplies, dual 1000BaseT Ethernet connections (one each for control and AES67), and a web-based user interface for setup, configuration, routing, control, and metering.
