Trinnov updates its D-MON hardware and software

Posted on: Wednesday 10th of November 2021

Trinnov Audio La Remote ImageTrinnov Audio has announced a complete hardware and software refresh of its D-MON speaker optimisation and management range.

The upgrades are designed to deliver new features that can meet customer and studio requirements as the music industry incrementally adopts Dolby Atmos. Effective from December, the current D-MON 6 and 12 hardware units will be replaced by a single D-MONoption; this new unit will be adaptable to provide between 6 and 18 Optimisation channels as required, upgradable via software updates in increments of two.

The extended functionality does not necessarily require new hardware, however. D-MON 12 units sold to customers in either 2020 and 2021 will also be upgradable via software from 12 channels (at 96kHz) up to 18 (at 48kHz). Also included in the upcoming software overhaul will be support for new Dolby Atmos formats (up to 9.3.6); support for multiple subwoofers, which will be provided via the unit’s Matrix bass management system, as well as Ravenna/AES67 support (Dante compatible) that will add 16 extra inputs and outputs via Ravenna at 48kHz, free of charge. These AoIP streams can be handled via the Merging Aneman audio network manager with D-MON sources and outputs automatically created upon stream declaration and subscription – though the company adds that the software implementation cannot be elected as a grand master/leader clock on the local network, and that it is currently not possible to drive speaker sets via AoIP outputs.

For those with older D-MON units sold before 2020, the company has stated its intention to make upgrade paths made available to the current specifications at some point during 2022. The company tells us this hardware upgrade will not require the return of the processor to Trinnov itself, and can be handled by local Trinnov resellers.
