VR Experts Agree on the Importance of Audio

A virtual reality panel at the HPA Tech Retreat this month had experts weighing in on how virtual reality will continue to evolve. One point that was agreed upon was the importance of sound.

Panel moderater Debra Kaufman writes on ETCentric, “[ETC VR/AR head Phil] Lelyveld also noted the crucial importance of audio in virtual reality; new technologies for spatial capture and lavaliere tracking from Nokia and DTS and Dolby production are at play here. [Stuart English, head of worldwide sales for presence capture at Nokia Technologies; and Steve Schklair, producer, cinematographer and chief executive of 3ality/Technica] agreed with this assessment, Schklair noting how important audio is to alert the viewer to the direction he/she needs to look.”
