AudioScenic was spun out of the Institute of Sound and Vibrational Research (ISVR) at the University of Southampton in 2017. The company’s technology was co-developed here by Dr. Marcos Simón (Chief Technology Officer) under the supervision of Chief Scientific Officer, Prof. Filippo Fazi, a world-leading expert in 3D audio theory and algorithms.  Dr. Simón and Prof. Fazi developed a method of monitoring the location of a listener’s head and beaming separate sound waves to their left and right ears from a single, compact soundbar, creating an immersive 3D audio experience far beyond what conventional surround sound speaker systems offer.
