L-Acoustics, Mixhalo Enter Strategic Partnership
L-Acoustics has announced it has become a major investor in Mixhalo, as well as the exclusive audio professional partner of the San Francisco-based company.
Founded by Incubus guitarist and songwriter Mike Einziger and internationally acclaimed violinist Ann Marie Simpson-Einziger, Mixhalo enables live event organizers to give audiences low-latency audio, delivered directly to their 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. Since 2019, Mixhalo has deployed its technology across venues and live events including Sting’s My Songs Residency at Caesars Colosseum, Red Rocks, Stern Grove Festival and DTE Energy Music Theatre, as well as multiple major league sports venues.
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 signal sent via Wi-Fi or 5G to mobile devices and headphones, as well as customized immersive experiences via wireless transmission of spatial audio content. L-Acoustics will provide guidance to support Mixhalo’s organic growth and participate in Mixhalo’s strategic discussions via the appointment of a Board of Directors’ seat.
“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,” said Laurent Vaissie, CEO at L-Acoustics. “Together with the team at Mixhalo, we look forward to leading the development of hybrid solutions that will complement L-Acoustics high-performance loudspeaker, software and electronics offering and to elevating the fan experience from sports venues and corporate events to immersive concert experiences and beyond.”
