Sky acquires SoundField UPM-1 upmix processors

European satellite broadcaster BSkyB, better known as Sky, has purchased eight of SoundField's stereo-to-5.1 upmix processors for live use in its studios and outside broadcast facilities.

The SoundField UPM-1 is a 1RU, 19in processor that can create a convincing, phase-coherent 5.1 surround panorama from stereo audio in real time without adding any reverb or unwanted additional phase shifts.

It does this by adaptively analyzing the two-channel stereo material, separating the content into its ambient and direct components, and placing any material from the center of the original stereo mix, such as commentary or dialog, into the center channel of the resulting 5.1 panorama.
