L-Acoustics announced it has become a major investor in Mixhalo as well as the exclusive audio partner for the San Francisco-based company. The company was founded by Incubus guitarist and songwriter Mike Einziger and internationally acclaimed violinist Anna Marie Simpson-Einziger.
“Mixhalo has both the team and technology needed to make mobile wireless streaming a premium live event experience. With this strategic investment, L-Acoustics affirms our focus on industry-leading innovation to shape the future of sound,” expressed Laurent Vaissié, Chief Executive Officer at L-Acoustics.
Mixhalo enables live event organizers to give audiences low latency audio, delivered directly to their own phones and headphones via a mobile app. L-Acoustics and Mixhalo first collaborated in 2019 on Aerosmith’s Deuces Are Wild residency at the Park Theater in Las Vegas, offering a live immersive audio experience with L-ISA technology, combined with a VIP on-stage experience with Mixhalo.
“L-Acoustics is widely known across the industry for driving innovation of premium audio products, and their extensive global relationships will open many doors for us,” said John Vars, CEO of Mixhalo. “We always look to work with innovators who share our vision for elevating the live entertainment experience, and L-Acoustics is the perfect fit.”
The partnership will foster cooperation and co-development between L-Acoustics and Mixhalo to create hybrid solutions that combine sound reinforcement from loudspeakers and wireless audio signals sent via Wi-Fi or 5G to mobile devices.
“I’m convinced that hybrid solutions for live events will bring unique immersive experiences to audiences everywhere,” explained Guillaume Le Nost, Executive Director of Creative Technologies at L-Acoustics. “Whether to improve coverage in hard-to-reach seating areas, offer additional content like sports commentary at a game or create a unique and personal experience on stage as Mixhalo did for Aerosmith fans, the potential is bound only by the shared imagination of our development teams.”
