Paris – April 19, 2017 –

After benchmarking the offerings available today on the market, Microsoft selected 3D Sound Labs based on the performance of its 3D audio head tracking module. 3D Sound Labs’ solution brings accuracy, a high sampling rate and very low latency, which are important characteristics of a high-quality 3D Audio rendering.

The combination of 3D Sound Labs’ head tracking technology and Microsoft’s 3D Audio and integrated system design expertise makes it possible to create more powerful and immersive user experiences.

We’re extremely excited that the performances of our 3D Audio head-tracking technology have been recognized by Microsoft,” said Dimitri Singer, CEO at 3D Sound Labs. “We look forward to teaming up with Microsoft Research engineers and developing leading-edge 3D Audio based applications.

Jay Beavers, engineering manager, Microsoft AI and Research, Microsoft Corp. said, “We evaluated different 3D audio head-tracking technologies on the market, and found the 3D Sound Labs head-tracking module to be one of the best performing. We are pleased to work with 3D Sound Labs as their head tracking technology is well-fitted for our needs.”
