Virtual Reality Sound

Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) is a major trend these days. Business Insider estimates that the number of shipments of VR headsets will grow by 99% annually between 2015 and 2020 and Goldman Sachs recently predicted that VR will outpace the TV market in annual revenue by 2025 with $110 billion dollars vs. $99 billion dollars. It is also widely accepted that 3D / binaural sound is a crucial factor in order for the user to have a truly "immersive virtual experience". The technological development has its epicenter in Silicon Valley but the waves (and opportunities) are hitting the European shores. Danish Sound aims at connecting a Danish VR Sound initiative to the European and global VR train in order to create new opportunities for startups and established companies in Denmark.
