Game audio specialist Audiokinect has secured a deal with 3D sound tool outfit Auro Technologies that will see the former's Wwise integrated with Auro-3D in the form of AuroWwise.
The integration of Auro-3D into Wwise was conceived to drive the adoption of Auro Technologies' multi-channel 3D audio format, allowing game makers use a single set of tools to create multiple output formats of the same game simultaneously.
“Auro-3D provides an excellent complement to Wwise by offering a truly unique immersive experience, as well as backward and forward compatibility with existing audio systems," explained Martin Klein, founder and CEO at Audiokinetic. "Another critical element was the ease and economy regarding both implementation and operation.
“I was blown away by the Auro-3D cinema audio experience, and we are very proud to continue our commitment to game audio innovation and we look forward to hearing new revolutionary sound design from our Wwise user community in new upcoming game titles." says Jacques Deveau, VP Sales & Business at Audiokinetic.
"The interactive media and gaming community has always been important to Auro Technologies," added Wilfried Van Baelen, founder and CEO of Auro Technologies. "By partnering with Audiokinetic, we are very pleased to make the revolutionary Auro-3D technology and capabilities available to the Wwise community. We are proud to help contribute to bringing true 3D sound into interactive media and gaming.
