What is EARS:
EARS – Electro Acoustic Resonance System is a top of the line dynamic solution for easily modulating and setting the acoustic characteristics of a performance venue.
With EARS it is possible to give your audience the sound experience of a variety of spaces, including concert halls, theaters, lecture halls and much more
Why is EARS necessary:
EARS turns your venue into one that may host any event you can think of. A room needs different characteristics to optimally cater to different kinds of events.
A Rock’N’Roll show requires different room resonance than a concert hall. A multi purpose hall requires a system that can fit the room to its purpose with a press of a button. If dynamically changing the acoustics of your room is something you require, EARS is the solution for you.
The benefits of EARS:
-Easily switch between multiple custom made configurations
-Reasonable cost, High performance
-Uses ONLY top quality components from leading industry professionals
-Solves challenges that cannot be overcome by architectural design alone
-Compatible with Dolby 5.1 – 6.1 – & 7.1 cinema audio
-Great voice lifting performance
EARS is already changing the game and was recently installed in the SELA auditorium at the Weitzman Institute of Science.
This has been achieved using the following components:
- 14 microphones manufactured by DPA
- 48 loudspeakers from d&b audiotechnik, driven by 48 channels of d&b digital amplifiers
- Biamp Tesira server, a 48×48 digital Audio matrix DSP that supports AVB TSN and DANTE
- Touch screen based command system from Crestron to enable quick preset selection
The magic ingredient is our Acoustic Reflections Emulator, or ARE, which lays at the heart of the EARS system, equipped with six channels of digital algorithms to handle early and late reflections.
EARS has been active in the SELA auditorium since November 2019 with great success. It has been tested by the best musicians, conductors and tonmeisters of both the Israeli Philharmonic and Camerata Orchestras. Responses have generally ranged between “Incredible” to “It’s too good to be true!”;
