Audio is a crucial sense for human beings, and spatial audio is the next step in its evolution. Spatial audio integrates sound from all directions, giving a true sense of where things are in relation to you.

As work and play become more virtual, improving the audio clarity becomes more important.  Virtual events, remote and hybrid workers, Gaming and a group of friends (virtually) chatting has become a way to bridge distances. Often, however, the audio in these applications can be less than ideal. It’s sometimes difficult to identify the speaker, and if more than one person is talking, confusion can ensue.

For developers, Immersitech is delivering a new audio experience with spatial audio technology. Spatial audio uses a “dimensional” approach to audio that can recreate and mimic how we hear in real life. With spatial audio, listeners can hear every person in the room and pinpoint where their audio is coming from.

The Benefits of Spatial Audio

This research found that people respond to and interpret sound better when delivered and spatially separated. That’s why spatial audio is so powerful. It offers a more meaningful and productive virtual conference user experience.

Developers wanting to provide their users with an immersive audio experience should support spatial audio as it allows users to:

  • Accurately hear what a person is saying and remove unnecessary sounds from a noisy environment.
  • Hear multiple audio sources without losing focus.
  • Detect speakers interrupting or waiting to speak during an audio conference staying more in tune with the meeting’s dynamic.
  • Identify the number of speakers in a multi-talker environment resulting in more efficient interactions.
  • Provide users with an experience where they can almost instinctively know who is present.
  • Spatial audio allows more natural interaction between users.

When users can hear more clearly, engagements can be shorter and more productive in the virtual environment. More can get accomplished because spatial audio leads to clarity and improved productivity.

Here at Immersitech, we’ve developed Sound Software Development Kits (SDKs) that are designed to integrate across different platforms. Our SDKs allow developers to improve voice clarity, reduce background noise, and spatialize the audio, minimizing distractions and elevating the user experience.
