MEET US IN
LAS VEGAS | JAN 9-12, 2O18
The past year has been an exciting year for Dirac when Dirac has been under the lime light on the globe stage more than once because its breakthroughs in sound technologies for AR/VR, mobile, automotive as well as home & entertainment. In a recent interview with Dirac’s CES Mathias Johansson, The Economist 1843 wrote that “Dirac, a research firm based in Sweden, has found a way to prevent distortions to sound in the wild.”
Superior sound quality and life-like listening experiences indeed have always been our promise to the end users and customers, which also drive us to keep innovating ourselves. At CES 2018, we are looking forward to astonishing you with our latest innovations across various platforms.
Superior sound quality and life-like listening experiences indeed have always been our promise to the end users and customers, which also drive us to keep innovating ourselves. At CES 2018, we are looking forward to astonishing you with our latest innovations across various platforms. You will be able to experience a pre-release demo of the second-generation Dirac Live room correction platform updated with a refreshed interface, simplified setup procedure and a new algorithm. You will also be able to experience the groundbreaking Dirac VR technology via a pair of headphones and a VR headset. Furthermore, Dirac will unveil the first results of a two-year collaboration with AAC Technologies: a series of ground-breaking product prototypes that deliver a new caliber of listening experience through familiar consumer devices – from smartphones and tablets, to AR headsets, smart speakers, and automotive speakers.
Location: The Westgate, Suite 63O
Sneak Peek at Dirac - CES 2O18
The Next Generation of Dirac Live
At CES 2017 we introduced the world to our new Dynamic 3D Audio solution, with the first AR/VR platform utilizing dynamic HRTF technology. Using patent-pending Dynamic HRTFs, Dirac VR elevates VR/AR audio to a new level of realism that’s so transcendent, you’ll forget you’re wearing a headset. Read more!
Dirac VR technology via a VR headset
Marking its official entry into the VR space at CES 2017, Dirac VR is a high-end alternative to existing 3D audio technologies for headphones. The technology has been described by some of the world’s most discerning tech journalists as “startlingly realistic”, “eerily convincing”, and “might just change the way people experience VR.” Compared to the demo on computer at last year’s CES, at CES 2018, you will be able to watch movies enabled by Dirac VR technology with a smartphone, a VR headset and a pair of headphones.
JBL Soundboost 2 for moto z smartphone with home theatre audio quality
Dirac Panorama Sound, the all-new mobile surround sound solution for audio systems comprised of two or more speakers, was recently made available through the JBL Soundboost 2 speaker compatible exclusively with Motorola’s moto z smartphones. The demo will be available at CES 2018 to showcase how a tiny speaker is transformed into a mini
home theater on the go with extra wide soundstage and immersive sound – all is activated with one button thanks to the advanced Dirac Panorama Sound technology. Click here to learn more about the demo products and the technology.
The first results of the collaboration with AAC
For the past two years, Dirac Research and AAC Technologies, the global leader in micro-speakers, have worked closely to build audio subsystems that integrate the world’s foremost audio processing technology with state-of-the-art micro-speaker technology. At CES 2018, we will unveil the first results of this collaboration.
The Dirac-AAC smart speaker and smartphone demo compares their audio performance against their corresponding market-available alternatives – thereby showcasing the impressive performance upgrade achieved through the partnership.
By positioning speakers just above the ears, the Dirac-AAC augmented reality headset produces immersive audio that effectively overlays the natural sound environment. The combination of advanced audio processing and high-performance micro-speaker arrays beam the sound to your ears and minimize the leakage to the surroundings.
The Dirac-AAC automotive speaker demo will explore how powerful sound can be produced by ultra-thin speakers, capable of embedment in headrests, headliners, and other areas that can be used to create individual soundstages within the vehicle.
