Kinicho are the developers on Sympan, the next-generation Sonic Reality Engine. We conceptualised Sonic Reality to advance the idea that natural sound is replicable in headphones and earbuds.
We are looking to collaborate on projects where real-time natural sound replication is part of the use-case. We have a new processing technique that enhances naturalism in 3D spatial audio, improving localisation, audio quality and performance. The technique is currently working in desktop and high-power computing environments and in mobile devices, though limited by processing capacity, so we would like to explore it for cloud/edge computing scenario aligned to 5G.
As we can deliver ultra-high-definition spatial audio with zero-latency, this makes it a useful application for 5G use-cases. We envisage use-cases where cloud-processing can be parameterised by the orientation and positional data from mobile devices and hifi audiophile quality binaural spatial audio can be a return to the listener.
This obviously covers use cases across Immersive/VR/XR/AR applications but also extends into projects that use conventional media forms like Cinematic Surround Sound for movies, streaming live performances, enhanced gaming and so on.
But it is also applicable in some use-cases such as IOT/Sensors for health & safety, security and other avenues where the sonic reality of an environment might be relayed to a remote listener.
If you have a potential use case but you're not sure of its viability, we're also amenable to having an ideation conversation with you.
