vTime will bring new levels of aural immersion to social VR through a partnership with DTS.

The collaboration will bring next-generation, interactive audio to vTime’s global community - across both mobile and PC - raising the bar for audio in VR communications.

DTS Custom audio technology delivers the most realistic experience possible by putting the listener at the center of the soundscape, creating a virtualized surround experience over headphones. Using a combination of localized, spatial and head-tracked audio, vTime’s extensive library of immersive destinations will enjoy features such as spatial descriptors, proximity effects for heightened social presence, and laser-focused directional sound. Billions of devices worldwide are already optimized for this technology.

DTS® Custom technology represents the latest generation of the highly-acclaimed DTS audio solutions, now supporting direct game engine integration plus support for multiple input options including audio objects, channels and ambisonics. With DTS audio solutions, developers can create content using existing industry standard tools with no change to their current workflow. The plugin is designed for the game engine or Wwise middleware that enables the DTS audio experience.
