Immersed 2015: Immersive Audio For VR

By Member Blogs & Education Sessions

Jan Nordmann is Senior Director Business Development for New Media at Fraunhofer USA Digital Media Technologies.  This technical presentation talks about the effective use of audio in virtual reality.  Very well received!

Immersed Europe: Public Exhibition Panel

By Member Blogs & Education Sessions

With all the excitement about virtual reality in the home, it’s easy to forget that there is a viable and growing public exhibition market as well that has a very rich history to stand on.  This panel features:

  • Jose Luis Navarro, CEO, InMediaStudio
  • Kevin Williams, Chairman, DNA Association
  • Chuck Ian Gordon, Gordon’s Arcade

This proved to be very entertaining!
