ATLANTA, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Conquest VR announces that it will make its corporate debut at Augmented World Expo USA, scheduled for June 1st to 3rd, 2022, at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Conquest VR will be exhibiting at Booth #11. Started by VR and audio enthusiasts, co-founders Raghu Bathina (CEO) and Sridhar Prathikanti, MD (President), Conquest VR's mission is to dramatically improve virtual reality (VR) experiences by delivering truly immersive sound.
Existing VR Audio is Not Immersive, Until Now
Going forward, the challenge for the VR community is how to use mass-produced VR headsets to deliver truly immersive experiences.
Introducing Conquest VR
The Conquest VR team has more than 40 years of combined VR experience and is now working to enhance the VR experience through immersive audio for multiple audiences. The company’s products will significantly improve gameplay and competitiveness for VR gaming enthusiasts. Additionally, the products will make VR training and educational experiences much more engaging and impactful.
“Presence in virtual reality is that magical feeling of being transported to a different place and time, to a new virtual world. But to experience true presence, there are several requirements, and one key component is immersive audio, audio that perfectly captures the 3D environment of the virtual world. This includes positional sounds and environmental effects such as Doppler, occlusion, and the impact of materials in the virtual space. Advanced audio spatializers now allow developers to create phenomenally accurate soundscapes. At Conquest VR, we aim to bring those soundscapes to life by delivering compelling and realistic audio output," said Bathina.
