Auro-Scene Virtual Speaker Technology
The new Auro-Scene virtual speaker technology for Soundbar provides an engaging and vivid experience for those looking to achieve an Immersive experience at home without the commitment of a full home cinema installation. Integrated into the new Auro-3D Engine v3, Auro-Scene is tuned to deliver optimal results alongside our acclaimed Auro-Codec and Auro-Matic.
Auro-Scene in parallel with the Auro-Codec and Auro-Matic is capable of playback from any source (e.g. stereo, 5.1/7.1), across any content ( movies, music, sports…), in turn, creating a virtual 3D space around you. Whatever the requirements may be; across movies, tv, music and gaming, the new virtual speaker solution from Auro-3D is able to transform any space in the home. Providing you entry into a world where every breath-taking moment is not only heard but also felt. It is now possible with only a Soundbar to escape into the story and get lost in the music; experience every moment and emotion the way nature intended with Auro-3D.
“We are excited to be introducing the Auro virtualisation technology for Soundbar into the Home Entertainment market. Auro’s ambition is to push our technology to a wide variety of Soundbars in the market and more specifically for those seeking a best-in-class immersive 3D home entertainment experience”, said Rudy Van Duppen, CEO at Auro Technologies. “The soundbar technology developed by Auro is very flexible and as such, it supports a wide variety of hardware configurations. We do believe that this Auro Virtualisation technology will set a new reference in Soundbar sound quality”, concludes Van Duppen.
There are 3 possible configurations including satellite speakers. It supports all scenarios ranging from stereo setups, over a standalone 5.1.2 configuration, up to a 7.1.4 configuration including satellite speakers, making it possible to achieve up to 20 speaker configurations. A distinctive and exclusive element of the Auro-3D offering is the use of satellite speakers as Front Height Speakers for a truly breathtaking immersive experience.
