Sphere Entertainment Buys Out Remaining Shares of 3D Audio Firm Holoplot

Sphere Entertainment announced on Monday that it has acquired all of the remaining shares it did not previously own of Holoplot GmbH, a global leader in 3D audio technology based in Berlin.

Sphere first invested in Holoplot in 2018 when the two companies partnered to develop Sphere Immersive Sound, powered by Holoplot, a loud speaker technology which uses 3D audio-beam forming and wave field synthesis to deliver crystal-clear, individualized sound to every seat in the Sphere when it opened in Las Vegas in September 2023 with U2.

Holoplot will remain based in Berlin and operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sphere Entertainment as it continues to grow its business and serve its customers and clients. The Sphere is currently hosting Dead and Company at its Las Vegas venue.

“Holoplot is at the forefront of audio innovation, and their custom-designed technology has already transformed what is possible for concert-grade sound,” said MSG Ventures CEO David Dibble and executive vp Paul Westbury. “This acquisition reflects our Company’s commitment to staying on the cutting-edge of immersive experiences as we explore growth opportunities for both Sphere and Holoplot.”

Roman Sick, CEO and co-founder of Holoplot, told Billboard: “We have worked alongside the Sphere team for many years in developing our technology, and together we have forever changed the live sound experience. As a result of this transaction, Holoplot can accelerate its mission to bring its technologies to more applications and markets, and continue to push audio innovation to new bounds.”
