Virtual world immersion
Immersion in virtual worlds depends not only on visual effects but also on a compelling audio experience. In addition, it is a function of scale and number of active users. The larger the world, the more there is to explore and the more people you can potentially meet.
But the way you can currently interact with people in virtual worlds has room to improve. Existing communications solutions limit you to hearing only a handful of people and they need to be “standing” right next to you. How can developers create a truly immersive experience when technologies don’t scale to reflect the size of the environment?
The answer is Dolby.io Spatial Audio
Dolby.io Spatial Audio drives social interaction and immersion by dramatically increasing the number of people you can interact with in a virtual world. Not only can you hear hundreds of voices, each with the unique richness, clarity and tenor you’d find in real world interactions, but you will also be able to tell precisely where people are thanks to spatial positioning, powered by Dolby Atmos technology.

Spatial Audio is a differentiating capability for our platform. After encountering a few roadblocks in our development with various spatial audio providers, we decided to make the switch to Dolby.io. With Dolby.io, we not only achieved a better level of spatial audio fidelity, but the Dolby.io’s SDK was also more user-friendly to integrate.

The process of upgrading from our existing communications solution to Dolby.io was seamless, and brought an extra dimension to Mytaverse. Our users were amazed by the new sound quality and the spatial aspects of it. We see a bright future using Dolby.io technology for our communications protocol in Mytaverse.
