Las Vegas, NV (January 9, 2014)—Auro Technologies has announced the introduction of its immersive Auro-3D audio experience into the consumer electronics market at the 2014 International CES.
Audo-3D adds a vertical stereo field of 30 degrees above ear level above traditional 5.1 and 7.1 configurations. It allows the playback of native audio in 3D over a wide range of speaker configurations and over any standard pair of headphones.
Since the introduction of Auro 9.1 and Auro 10.1 at the AES Convention in Paris and San Francisco in 2006, the cinematic speaker layout Auro 11.1 was launched in 2010 (Tokyo, AES Spatial Audio Convention), due to the contribution of Barco, Auro Technologies’ exclusive partner for digital cinema. Until now, Auro-3D has only been available in cinemas equipped with Auro 11.1 by Barco worldwide.
Some of Auro Technologies’ official partners include: Audiokinetic, California Audio Technology (CAT), Continental, Datasat Digital Entertainment, Denon & Marantz, McIntosh Laboratory, Steinway Lyngdorf (SL Audio) and StormAudio.
Early February 2014, Auro Technologies will also begin shipping its own Auro-3D AV Receiver, the Auro-3D ISSP 12.200D.
