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.
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.
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.
