iMix Monitor: Overview
iMix 5.1 Headphone Monitor
Designed for critical monitoring and quality control, the iMix 5.1 Monitor is the world’s first surround headphone system that doesn't rely on an artificial ambience or special encoding to create 5.1 surround in headphones. Orban’s patent-pending DSX Headphone SurroundTM algorithm delivers a rock-solid soundfield and features the latest version ITU-R BS.1770 loudness measurement.
The iMix 5.1 Monitor uses any type of headphone without the need for individual HRTF calibration or special setup - including open and closed-back headphones, in-ear monitors or earbuds. A built-in Zenith control allows fine-tuning of center and surround channel height.
No proprietary surround encoding is required to accurately render a completely stable and discrete 5.1 soundstage. Test tone locations are rendered with absolute image integrity, including BLITS tones and SWOOP tests without the need for artificial ambience that masks the program audio. Designed to be used by broadcasters, production houses, content creators, recording studios, mastering houses and HDTV networks, Orban’s iMix 5.1 Monitor represents the only completely compatible non-ambientcreating surround headphone monitoring technology available.
Compliant with latest revision of all ITU-R BS. 1770 industry standards: ATSC A/85, ARIB-B32, EBU R128. Options include AES I/O via Tascam breakout cable, AoIP and HD/SDI inputs, as well as built-in webserver for remote control and logging.
