L-Acoustics previews AI-powered Mixhalo Translate at ISE

L-Acoustics used ISE to showcase new capabilities for the L-ISA platform with AI-powered Mixhalo Translate.

Mixhalo’s real-time audio streaming software has been optimised to unlock a new creative dimension with high-fidelity, low-latency audio for audiences at conferences, sporting events, museums and more.

Having gained industry attention worldwide by winning both audio technology and event technology of the year at the AV Awards in London late last year, Mixhalo is now set to revolutionise interpretation services at live events, bringing AI and cloud services to the L-ISA platform.

Mixhalo Translate combines real-time streaming capabilities with the latest advancements in artificial intelligence, transforming the way interpretation services are delivered at live events.

Attendees can now enjoy AI-generated foreign language interpretation and transcription through their own familiar smartphones and headphones. The quality and accuracy of the translations are comparable to human interpreters, ensuring an intuitive, immersive and inclusive experience for all, without the need for expensive and cumbersome sound packs and headphones.

Since 2023, Mixhalo has been integrated into the L-Acoustics L-ISA Processor II.

"Hosting Mixhalo's ground-breaking software on the L-ISA platform represents a technology marriage unlike anything else on the market,” said Asher Dowson, director of product management at L-Acoustics.

“Bringing revolutionary AI Translation and high-fidelity on-device audio streaming in one integrated solution, enabled by the new Mixhalo Control interface for configuring and managing streams, unlocks audience personalization and inclusivity for a whole host of new experiences and event formats."

“Mixhalo Translate will completely revolutionise the way event organisers procure and provide interpretation services - and the way that attendees consume content at live events,” explains Corey Laplante, COO of Mixhalo, “By delivering AI-generated content directly to a user's own phone and headphones, we have built a modern solution for today's live events.”

Renowned artists and teams such as Metallica, Sting, Pharrell, and the Seattle Kraken and FC Dallas have already embraced the technology.

“We’re thrilled to have a select group of partners on board for the Mixhalo Translate beta and look forward to making the solution publicly available later this year. Beyond that, we’re excited to see the L-ISA platform utilised for binaural broadcast mixes at hybrid events alongside Mixhalo deployments,” concluded Dowson.

Powered by proprietary, cutting-edge wireless networking technologies, Mixhalo enhances the live music experience by providing in-ear, soundboard-quality audio to all fans through their own phones and headphones.

Fans can even access unique mixes, such as the guitar mix or the drums. In live sports, teams and venues utilise Mixhalo to deliver multiple channels of audio content, including home and away radio broadcasts, Spanish language broadcasts, celebrity commentary, and other custom content – all perfectly synchronised with the live action.
