InterBEE2011 PREVIEW: Hanaoka Musen Denki exhibits HiFiREVERB ENCODER, a sound encoder utilizing reverberation control technology
Hanaoka Musen Denki Co. will exhibit HiFiREVERB ENCODER, a sound encoder utilizing reverberation control technology, at InterBEE2011 at Makuhari Messe from November 16-18 (Wednesday-Friday). Hanaoka Musen Denki is based in Meguro Ward, Tokyo, and Katsumi Hanaoka serves as its president and CEO.
■ Demonstration of HiFiREVERB ENCODER with system configurations based on actual usage
HiFiREVERB ENCODER, to be unveiled at InterBEE by Hanaoka Musen Denki, is a commercial studio sound encoder based on Revtrina developed by NTT Communication Science Laboratories, and equipped with the audio 3D technology HiFiREVERB that was commercialized by NTT Electronics. HiFiREVERB ENCODER separates direct sound and reverberation components from input digital/analogue 2ch stereo/monaural sounds. By controlling the mixing ratio of the separated direct sound and reverberation components, HiFiREVERB ENCODER can create 5.1ch surround sound. Compared with the current mainstream Pseudo Surround technology, which is based on extending the phase, HiFiREVERB ENCODER is equipped with the Virtual Surround technology, which makes direct sound components audible from the forward direction and reverberation components audible from the periphery.
Explaining its use, President Hanaoka said, "2ch Virtual Surround for FM and Internet radio, as well as controlling the mixing ratio of the separated direct sound and reverberation components, will make hall-recorded speeches much easier to listen by decreasing reverberation components."
Demonstrations of HiFiREVERB ENCODER will be held at the firm's booth by reproducing a mock recording/broadcasting studio setting. "I'd like everyone to experience the advantages of HiFiREVERB ENCODER, and holding demonstrations in a studio-like setting is the best way to do that," said Mr. Hanaoka.
In addition to HiFiREVERB ENCODER, new products including the DLM-84 digital line mixer and the PA-6H compact receiver monitor will also be on display.
