d&b audiotechnik’s 360-degree surround sound system is helping visitors truly immerse themselves in the world of Leonardo Da Vinci at Berlin’s Genius Immersive Experience.

Berlin is currently hosting the Genius Immersive Experience, which celebrates the universal genius of Leonardo Da Vinci. Offering visitors an interpretation of how Da Vinci would see and navigate our world today, the exhibition is designed as an immersive, interactive art experience, transporting visitors into the great man’s world of thought.

The experience was realised by, among others, the organiser BIG Borealis and the design studio flora&faunavisions. d&b partner Amptec, a leading provider of professional audio solutions based in Belgium, was responsible for providing the audio equipment and installing the d&b Soundscape system.

d&b’s Soundscape is a scalable, high-resolution platform. Its En-Scene software enables object-based mixing, while its En-Space software is a plug-and-play acoustic emulation software based on sophisticated acoustic signatures of some of the world’s leading performance venues.

The DS100 Signal Engine from d&b audiotechnik sits at the heart of the Soundscape system. The network- and Dante-enabled DSP platform can manage 64 inputs and outputs in parallel and takes care of the distribution of the individual audio tracks.

In addition to the DS100, three DS10 Audio Network Bridges are used for the Genius system design, which serve as an interface between the Dante network and digital AES3 audio signals. The seamless interaction of d&b loudspeakers, processors, matrices, the audio files and the right installation made this interactive and immersive experience possible.

“When we went looking for a sound system a year ago, we were immediately impressed with the d&b Soundscape and its capabilities. It was a perfect fit for our show concept, because we wanted a complete immersive experience, not only visually, but audio-wise,” said Alfonso Losco, technical director at the Borealis Interactive Group.

Genius Da Vinci will be in Berlin until 31 July 2022 and the innovative multimedia exhibition will be on show in 12 other locations in Europe and the USA until 2025.
