Sound in simulators finally taken seriously with Barco AudioCue

Up to now, training environments have not realized the benefits of high-quality, real-life audio cues − yet, the demand for improved realism in training is increasing. Adding true-to-life audio cues heightens the realistic feeling of the simulation system and, when combined with Barco’s world-class projection technology, improves the impact of the training dramatically.

3D sound: a new layer in simulation

The high-quality, precise audio cues allow trainees to pinpoint objects and occurrences before they are within visual range, greatly contributing to faster decision-making and a trained, educated reaction pattern when a situation is at its most critical state. The result is a system that increases the awareness and effectiveness of training, better answering the needs of a wide variety of training and simulation markets, including ground training (rescue, security, direct combat, etc.), urban, JTAC, and healthcare.

More realism with accurate audio cues

Barco AudioCue uses the patented IOSONO CORE processing system, a unique solution providing the most advanced real-time rendering of sound in the simulation market. Depending on an object’s virtual location, Barco AudioCue renders sound on the spot, instead of mixing and delivering to a specified channel. This generates audio cues from the exact location that the object should be relative to the trainee's position. Conventional channel-based systems don't offer this precision, making the training programs rigid and far less realistic.

Discover AudioCue in action at ITEC (16-18 May, at Ahoy in Rotterdam, The Netherlands), at the QuantaDyn booth (#18). Visit the Barco booth (#44) for a lively discussion.
