AFMG Strengthens Sales and Support in EMEA and India

AFMG Partner Meeting AFMG has made significant changes to distribution and support of its software products. The company will sell its software, including EASE, EASERA and SysTune, direct to customers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India as of September.

AFMG announced these changes to its international partners from all over the world who had gathered in Berlin for the company’s bi-annual Partner Meeting. The occasion also marked AFMG’s 30th anniversary.

“When we started to simulate room acoustics in 1981,” said Professor Wolfgang Ahnert, “we could not foresee what an amazing success story EASE would become. Over the last three decades, the power of digital technology has surpassed all our expectations, and so has industry acceptance of EASE and of our other products.”

AFMG & IOSONO Team Up to Advance 3D Auralization

3D Auralization IOSONO, a leading provider of spatial audio systems and AFMG recently teamed up to develop a strikingly new approach to making virtual acoustical environments audible.

“Architects, their clients, engineers or even movie sound designers will enter into a new world of possibilities to engulf listeners in the sound of a virtual surrounding,” explains Frank Melchior, CTO at IOSONO.

“Just imagine that a number of listeners can all enjoy an identical acoustical experience at the same time, no matter where in the room they are sitting,” adds Stefan Feistel, Manager of AFMG. He continues, “Architects will hold their presentations not only with a slideshow of photo-realistic pictures but talking live within the acoustical situation of the room simulated in EASE. Designs of concert halls, cinemas, sound recording studios can all benefit significantly by such a solution.”

The two companies will employ IOSONO’s IPC100 audio processor and dedicated realtime convolution filters calculated by EASE to render a spatially oriented auralization throughout a large listening area. The IPC100 ideally expands the virtual sound field even of small to mid-sized loudspeaker arrangements using IOSONO’s spatial reproduction algorithms based on wave-field synthesis. A listener’s turn of the head will give the same impression as turning inside the venue auralized.
