Igloo Shared VR is ideal for museums that offer immersive experiences to its visitors
Igloo Vision has teamed up with Sennheiser and Neumann to create the Igloo Shared VR space equipped with an AMBEO 9.1 sound system created from Neumann KH 80 DSP studio monitors. This solution is ideal for museums, artists, education facilities, event spaces, architects and corporations that offer immersive experiences to its visitors. It can also be used for training and educational purposes to help recreate real-life scenarios.
Acting as a giant VR headset, Igloo Shared VR uses wraparound sound and vision to immerse teams in 360° or VR vision. The spaces range from 5–21m in diameter, allowing up to 750 people to watch. The addition of the AMBEO 9.1 system means that true 3D spatial soundscapes can reportedly be reproduced to allow sound designers to pinpoint the locations and sources of different sounds and link what is seen with what is heard. The resulting AMBEO Igloo cylinder works with an acoustically transparent screen that is said to let high-quality audio pass unhindered.
The Sennheiser AMBEO systems can be calibrated with any Igloo products, which range from 2.5m projection cubes up to 21m projection domes.
