MDA and Sennheiser team up for integration project

Marshall Day Acoustics (MDA) and Sennheiser have recently announced that they will be collaborating so that the IRIS room acoustics measurement system from MDA will be able to support Sennheiser’s Ambeo VR Mic.

In order to measure a room’s impulse response, the IRIS measurement system can be used with an Ambisonic microphone. A loudspeaker at a specific source position creates a single-sweep sine stimulus, which allows the IRIS software to record the room’s impulse response in 3D. The IRIS also visualises how the room’s surfaces reflect sound to the listening position in three dimensions, all via an easy-to-use interface. The 3D image plot is used to relate sound rays to physical features in the room as well as observing the directional distribution of early and late sound energy and identify surfaces that are causing problematic reflections.

‘We are really thrilled to have MDA join our Ambeo for VR partnership programme,’ said Véronique Larcher, director of Ambeo immersive audio at Sennheiser. ‘Moreover, it’s great to be entering the field of room measurement with the Ambeo VR Mic, an Ambisonics microphone.’

Daniel Protheroe from MDA added: ‘IRIS is among the premier room acoustics measurement systems in the world and one of the few that enables full spatial analysis, which is such a critical part of room evaluation. We are very happy to now be able to offer our customers direct support for the Sennheiser Ambeo VR Mic through the inclusion of the Ambeo A-format to B-format converter.’
