dearVR PRO To Become An All-In-One Solution For Spatial Audio Productions

Düsseldorf/Amsterdam, 13 September 2019 – At IBC, Dear Reality has announced an update (v1.4) to its flagship spatial audio software solution: From October, the dearVR PRO 3D audio panner will support 26 multichannel output formats. In addition to binaural and Ambisonics outputs, the software will be able to reproduce multichannel formats for loudspeaker playback from 5.0 to 13.1, for example for Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, MPEG-H or the AMBEO Soundbar from Sennheiser.

As well as the new multi-channel feature, a new highlight of dearVR PRO is an optimised virtual distance and acoustics simulation which recreates the spatial characteristics of houses of worship, concert halls, living rooms, cars etc. to produce a stunningly realistic sound. The update also results in a performance optimisation of up to 60%, which means that more instances of dearVR PRO can be processed simultaneously.

In combination with the dearVR SPATIAL CONNECT control software, sound creators can mix multichannel productions directly in VR – for example in virtual studios or virtual movie theatres – and monitor the mix via a corresponding set-up of monitoring loudspeakers. When combined with Sennheiser and Neumann recording and playback equipment, dearVR products are able to create full end-to-end workflows, which will be further expanded in the future.

The v1.4 update of dearVR PRO will be released in October and is free of charge for existing dearVR PRO customers. New customers can get dearVR PRO for USD349; a bundle with dearVR SPATIAL CONNECT is available at USD699.
