Researchers at Trinity College Dublin have invented a 3D audio system for games, Unlike the static process of watching a 3D cinema film, game users move their field of vision as they play interactive games and to date although their visual experience may change, the sound track remained the same.  Now a new immersive audio system designed by Professor Frank Boland and his team looks set to revolutionise audio for games with the potential for wider application in entertainment and education. Professor Boland explained “A sound coming from a 45 degree angle to a listener will come into their right ear differently than into their left ear and we have to be able to reproduce this difference through the headphones”

With research funded by the Science Foundation Ireland Investigators Programme, the Thrive 3D audio system, has been acquired by Google and was awarded an Irish Software Innovation Award in the category of Outstanding Academic Achievement
