University of Southampton spinout to launch 3D audio gaming at CES 2019

University innovators launch a miniaturised and laptop friendly 3D stereo sound bar.

Tech entrepreneurs from the University of Southampton have revealed the ground-breaking research innovations that will be launched at the January 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

University spinout, AudioScenic, will launch a miniaturised and laptop-friendly 3D stereo sound bar at the global showcase, where the University of Southampton’s Future Worlds Accelerator is set to be the only UK university exhibitor for a fourth consecutive year.
The University technologies will be unveiled in Booths 51560 and 51562 of Eureka Park in the Sands Expo, from Tuesday 8th January to Friday 11th January.

Associate Professor Filippo Fazi and Dr Marcos Simón from the University’s renowned Institute for Sound and Vibration Research have developed an immersive sound bar experience in the AudioScenic spinout, with its latest model for gaming laptops set to make its global debut at CES 2019.

“This laptop-sized sound bar will give gamers a 3D experience that they have never heard before,” co-founder Marcos says. “The level of miniaturisation and integration with the laptop’s audio system creates an unprecedented gaming experience, delivering captivating 3D audio without the need for uncomfortable and anti-social headphones.”

The Future Worlds stand at CES 2019 will also include live demonstrations for startups founded by students from the University of Southampton, including the BOON gift discovery platform and the Intro contact sharing app.
