Martin Rieger is participating as a spatial audio mentor

The fact that 3D audio in XR makes a decisive difference is already on most people’s radar. But what exactly is this spatial sound or whatever you want to call the new listening experience? This is exactly what will be demonstrated with practical examples throughout our congress. State-of-the-art audio technology meets creativity and unfolds its true potential. What does it sound like? Headphones on!

Why Spatial Audio is so important for the medical field?

Most people in the XR industry know how important sound is, yet rarely act like it. Sometimes, the listening experience is approached like it is just the icing on the cake and not equally important as the visuals.

That’s why Martin Rieger (VRTonung), the spatial audio expert, commits his life to the question: “how can we all benefit from three dimensional hearing?”

There are countless things that spatial audio can do which plain stereo or the visuals can’t. Martin’s talk breaks down how spatial audio can be used in XR and help the medical field pursue its – so grab your headphones and listen for yourself.
