Audioscenic, the UK-based developer of the Amphi AI Beamforming spatial audio technology, has collaborated with Acer to integrate its technology with Acer Immerse Audio.
The technology is available on its newest SpatialLabs 3D monitors: the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro 27 and the Predator SpatialLabs View 27. Combined with Acer’s naked-eye 3D visualisation solution, the 27-inch SpatialLabs monitors offer enveloping 3D gaming and viewing experiences with Audioscenic’s proprietary audio technology to provide an immersive listening experience without the need for headphones.
Audioscenic will showcase a wide range of implementations of its spatial audio technology at the 2024 CES Show in Las Vegas from Tuesday, January 9 to Friday, February 12 at The Venetian Hotel on the 29th Floor of the Venetian Tower.
"Enhanced by Audioscenic’s Amphi 3D audio beamforming technology, Acer Immersive Audio complements the sensual stereo 3D experiences on the 27” SpatialLabs monitors. Rich soundscapes are echoed from dual 2.5 W speakers for truly encapsulating experiences for gamers, cinephiles and developers. These efforts prove our dedication to providing an intuitive and natural, yet captivating digital adventure without the need for additional components such as headphones or glasses," said Jane Hsu, head of business development, Spatial Computing BU at Acer.
The SpatialLabs 27-inch 4K 3D displays are Acer’s flagship monitors designed for a fully 3D experience. Acer collaborated with Audioscenic to power its Acer Immers Audio with Audioscenic’s Amphi AI Beamforming technology that is designed to elevate the audio-visual experience. .
“We’re proud to cooperate with Acer in pushing this technology forward and are eager to see the impact it has on consumers and creators in the industry alike. The beamforming technology in Amphi has been tuned to utilise the dual speaker system in the SpatialLabs 27 monitors which allow for great immersion,” explained Audioscenic Chief Technology Officer, Marcos Simon. “This implementation, alongside Acer’s SpatialLabs 3D visualisation solution, creates a heightened level of experience for the viewer that is different from any other monitor on the market.”
The Predator SpatialLabs View 27 follows the first collaboration between the companies, with the Acer SpatialLabs View Pro 27 monitor announced in October 2023. This monitor geared toward professionals like visual designers and developers now grants an opportunity to create realistic content for video, education, retail, museums, simulations and training accompanied by an unmatched life-like audio experience.
“The strength of Amphi is its flexibility — it can be implemented in any device that has a pair of speakers and a camera as most consumer devices today do,” said Audioscenic CEO David Monteith. “Our technology offers an accessible, and affordable alternative to existing spatial audio implementations and we are eager to explore new product implementations that will deliver a no-compromise spatial audio experience for everyone and make it an essential part of everyday life.”
