Title: Surround Sound Effects Vs. 3D Audio

Surround Sound Effects Vs. 3D Audio
  • Surround sound and 3D sound effects are used in
    very similar ways.
  • Surround sound involves placing multiple speakers
    around a room to put you in the center of the
    action. It makes watching movies and television
    more realistic.
  • With 3D sound, not only do sounds come from the
    left and right of you, they also come from above
    and below you.

Surround Sound
  • Surround sound was invented to change the way
    viewers watch and listen to entertainment.
  • It uses an array of speakers, placed around a
    room, to create a multidimensional sonic
  • The idea is to have football games, concerts, and
    smash-hit movies really come to life.
  • In movie theaters years ago, the entire
    soundtrack was played on one speaker, or a
    collection of speakers that were placed behind
    the movie screen. Today, audiences in movie
    theaters are used to hearing sounds thundering on
    each side of them.

Benefits of Surround Sound
  • Surround sound enriches the sound quality of an
    audio source with additional audio channels from
    speakers that surround the listener, providing
    sound from a 360-degree radius.
  • Plenty of other places benefit from surround
    sound including conferences, video games, and
    even parks / outdoor attractions. For example, an
    exhibition at an aquarium is instantly enhanced
    with the sounds of waves coming to shore.

3D Sound
  • 3D sound is also known as spatial sound.
  • Sounds come from all directions and distances,
    and we're able to
    distinguish them by their pitch, tone, loudness,
    and location.
  • For example, a flock of birds flying over your
    house, a car door shut
    across the street, and more. All of
    these are examples of 3D sound.
  • Taking 3D sound and using it enhances a user's
    in a video game.

    ambience for a particular film or video scene, or
