27 February, Vinci held a new press conference in Beijing on the theme “Understand you by hearing · listening all together”, Released the first social intelligence headphone ——Vinci smart headphone 1.5 generations. Compared to Vinci 1.0, one of the biggest features of the new generation of Vinci is the realization of immersive audio playing and binaural sound recording through head-tracking.
In the field of virtual reality, the importance of 360 sound is self-evident, so that users can distinguish the direction, strength and distance of sound and realize interactive characteristics. The purpose of virtual reality is to simulate human senses and blur the boundary between virtual and reality. Therefore ,3D and panoramic sound are essential components of VR. Compared with the same type of headset products in China, the smart headset released by the Vinci significantly advances the VR audio playing on wearable headphones.
The Vinci immersive audio feature is made possible in collaboration with Twirling Technologies, a Beijing-based audio company specialized in audio capture and rendering. The Vinci headphones are equipped with an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) sensor, which includes an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer sensor. Through sensor fusion algorithms, Twirling’s audio engine analyzes the head position data and renders audio content to many virtual loudspeakers in 360 spatial sound space, yielding an unprecedented immersive audio experience.
Twirling Technologies (Twirling In Time) is a pioneer in speech and audio processing. At Twirling, we develop hardware and software to enable intelligent voice interaction interface, immersive audio creation and distribution. By leveraging our deep understanding in AI, signal processing, and audio, we build products and solutions with a wide range of applications in consumer electronics, education, security, VR/AR, and many other areas.
