Product Names

Fraunhofer Cingo® for the best-in-class immersive sound experience on VR New

Fraunhofer Cingo optimizes the 3D audio rendering on VR devices and applications with a stunning level of immersion, creating the experience of “being there”. Cingo’s reference customers include Samsung who integrated Cingo into the first generation of the »Gear VR«, LG for its »LG 360 VR« glasses as well as Hulu who integrated Cingo in its app for mobile and tethered VR experiences.
In addition to immersive sound, Cingo enables excellent surround sound over stereo speakers and headphones when playing any media content on mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones.
Thanks to loudness optimization, Cingo also improves the intelligibility of dialog and commentary making clear, authentic sound possible even in noisy environments. Cingo has been utilized in devices worldwide.

Cingo Composer: Simplified immersive sound production for Virtual Reality New

Looking for a tool that simplifies mixing immersive sound for VR? If so, be sure to check out the Cingo Composer plugin at InterBEE! We recently released a BETA version of the plugin that allows sound designers to easily mix, pan and monitor audio channels, ambisonics audio, as well as audio objects using Fraunhofer Cingo.
The plugin supports export of MPEG-H ready audio essence and metadata, plus export of FOA and 5.1 for legacy platforms. Therefore, you only need to mix once for any distribution channel.

MPEG-H 3D Audio: The new audio codec for 4K/8K TV New

MPEG-H 3D Audio is the first next generation audio system to be used in terrestrial 4K TV: Since May 2017, the new UHD TV system in South Korea is on-air utilizing the MPEG-H TV Audio System. Next year, viewers in Korea will enjoy the benefits of the new audio codec during the TV broadcast of the Olympic Winter Games. Viewers can set the audio mix for a program to their individual preferences, for example:

- Choose between different languages and boost hard to understand dialogue.
- Set the volume of the commentator or separately listen to the announcers or sideline mics.

The immersive 3D sound of MPEG-H 3D Audio also provides a truly realistic sound experience.
The MPEG-H TV Audio System is part of the ATSC 3.0 standard and the DVB A/V codec specification.
