At ISE 2018, Sony is showcasing the all-new Sonic Surf VR; a set of audio technology combined with newly designed multi-channel speakers and developed software that enables creators to simulate popping, moving, and partitioning sounds in one space.
At ISE 2018 Sony will demonstrate “the virtual sea”. Visitors can enjoy an immersive sound experience as if they were in the sea and playing with dolphins, surrounded by the squeaking sounds and echoes of bubbles in the water.
Visitors can experience the combination of a visual image – Delacroix’s famous painting “Liberty Leading the People” – on a display, with popping sounds such as shooting, bullet trajectory and horse footsteps that create the impression of the audience stepping inside the painting. The demonstration also shows the Sonic Surf VR’s potential of virtual sound partitioning, broadcasting the audio guide in multiple languages at the same time without sounds interfering or weakening each other.
Sonic Surf VR is appropriate for a range of applications, such as location-based entertainment like theme parks, special events, exhibitions, museums, aquariums and corporate showrooms with digital signage.
