WSDG NEWS - NIRO™ To Debut On NAMM Pro Audio Track

WSDG Founding Partner John Storyk
Participates At 2021 NAMM Technical Session

The need for a wave-based, computer-modeling tool capable of facilitating the predictive, iterative analysis required to optimize small room design (i.e. studios, home theaters, audiophile rooms, etc.,) has been the acoustician's "Holy Grail” for many years. Enter NIRO™, (Non-Cuboid Iterative Room Optimizer.), a SaaS (software as a service) developed over the past two years by REDIAcoustics, a research company dedicated to high-performance audio and acoustic analysis recently formed by Dr. Peter D’Antonio, creator of RPG Diffusor Systems Inc., and WSDG co-founder, John Storyk.

NIRO’s developmental software platform consists of three modules which automatically and iteratively optimize any size or shape critical listening room, both below and above the transition frequency from wave to geometrical acoustics. 
The Geometry Module optimizes the room's dimensions and the positions of all loudspeakers and listeners by searching for the flattest modal response.
The Damper Module designs and optimally locates all low frequency corrective treatments now referred to as Acoustical Parametric Equalizers (APEQs.). 
The Specular Reflection Module optimizes the room’s Reflection Free Zone; identifies disturbing mid and high frequency response anomalies, and addresses specific degrees of acoustic envelopment.  One or all of the modules may be engaged to address specific acoustic requirements for the high performance listening environment.
Excerpt from NIRO optimizational model
This fifteen-minute NIRO tutorial will illustrate how this software platform has been developed, the research behind it, and why it is poised to create a new paradigm in the optimization of small room acoustics. 
The presentation is set to premiere at 3:25 EST Thursday, January 21 on the Believe In Music Track.  Participation in the Session is FREE - You are all WELCOME!  Click to Get Involved and sign-in.
It will then be available “on demand” for five weeks following that date.

Considered the “Global Crossroads of Music, Sound & Entertainment Technology,” the 2021 NAMM Show will be held January 21-24.  For details visit: NAMM Announces Believe in Music Week, The Global Gathering to Unite and Support the Industry.
