Spatial Space Kit Brings Spatial Audio in a Box
Spatial is previewing its new Spatial Space Kit, a turnkey all-in-one solution that includes pre-configured hardware with Spatial’s software to make it easier than ever to bring immersive audio to commercial applications.
“The team at Spatial took years of learning from custom experience design for audio projects including installations of a few speakers in small environments to hundreds in combined indoor and outdoor spaces,” said Calin Pacurariu, co-founder and CEO of Spatial. “We’ve packaged those lessons along with everything necessary for commercial customers to rapidly deploy immersive soundscapes in their stores, offices, hospitals, and more. Spatial Space Kit allows commercial customers to immediately deploy immersive soundscapes with proven impact for their employees, front line workers, first responders, and guests.”
Commercial customers can enjoy the impact of spatial soundscapes optimized for targeted applications of immersive audio design based on decades of research from Spatial’s creative content partners. The initial soundscapes are pre-configured for customer-intended use and allows for flexible updates as experiences evolve. Creative teams can leverage Spatial Space Kit and Spatial Studio to build fully bespoke sonic experiences for brands. Among hundreds of soundscape variations, targeted scenes include:
- Retail collection: inspiration for brand specific bespoke experiences
- Office collection: biophilic, energy, and focus for employees in corporate, hybrid, and distributed team environments
- Healthcare collection: proven experiences improving nurse, doctor, and patient wellness
Spatial worked closely with Sonance’s James Loudspeaker to develop and engineer a purpose-built speaker marking one of the first speakers designed for immersive audio applications. The specific speaker design assures small- to medium-sized spaces are enveloped and reshaped with a balanced soundfield in all dimensions, highlighting Spatial’s software that renders hyper-realistic object-based soundscapes.
“Providing a full-range and balanced immersive soundfield in three dimensions required a fundamentally different approach than traditional speaker design,” said Todd Ryan, chief speaker designer at Sonance. “We were able to take the custom design craft expertise from our James Loudspeaker team and meet the unique requirements for Spatial.”
“Our goal is to make every single step associated with the setup of immersive audio installations easier—from the space design, hardware selection and install, software configuration, and content creation,” added Sid Bhargava, product lead at Spatial. “The partnership with Sonance is a key part of streamlining the space design and speaker installation. The Spatial Space Kit simplifies this process down to a few decisions to enable rapid deployment of Spatial and is an ideal option for initial exploration as brands reimagine full-scale immersive audio rollouts across multiple locales.”
Spatial Space Kit can be reserved today with a target ship date in early 2023. Full kit details, creative and hardware partners will be available at that time. For more information and early allocation, click here.
