ALTO Aviation Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary at 2022 NBAA-BACE
ALTO Aviation, a Green Pledge exhibitor at 2022 NBAA-BACE, celebrates 25 years of serving the business-aviation industry, expanding its passenger-centric ALTO MySound™ portfolio with new app-controlled ALTO MySound features, including optimized VIP Focus™ and Podcast mode.
Utilizing ALTO’s proprietary seat-centric audio technology, any cabin seat can give the passenger the most powerful immersive VIP surround sound to experience life-like, dynamic audio quality with smooth and powerful bass response.
The new VIP Focus customization allows the selected seat to be placed in the center of the action. With the touch of a button on a simple Cadence™ keypad or a swipe on the ALTO cabin control app, the bass from all the subwoofers is digitally focused for maximum sonic impact. The mid-high speakers are time-aligned and individually equalized to a perfect sweet spot in the passenger’s ears. The speakers behind the VIP seat can provide the surround channels for an unrivaled surround-sound cinema immersion.
ALTO MySound also offers VIP Row Surround, optimizing the listening experience for the VIP row of seats, a fully tuned stereo mode for the whole cabin, and a new Podcast mode that allows the passengers the ultimate customization.
ALTO’s System Master Controller dynamically controls the DSP in the ALTO amplifiers to set up custom EQ configurations selected by the passenger. Different sound profiles are achieved with spatially balanced speakers. ALTO’s approach allows for retroactively repurposing previous ALTO cabin audio systems, adding these new features with minimal changes to the architecture.
ALTO MySound with VIP Focus and Podcast mode has been successfully installed in aftermarket Gulfstream, Challenger and Global Express aircraft and selected by non-disclosure OEMs.
