Sony Middle East and Africa Broadens Availability of 360 Spatial Sound Experience with Upgrade to HT-A7000 and HT-A5000 Premium Soundbars
Sony Middle East & Africa announced a software upgrade for the premium HT-A7000 and HT-A5000 soundbars, which will add the customer-loved 360 Spatial Sound Mapping capabilities thatfirst premiered in the HT-A9 home theatre system in 2021. Customers can access this innovative feature when connecting their soundbar to Sony’s new SA-RS5 wireless rear speakers, launching April 2022, or the currently available SA-RS3S wireless rear speakers.
With Sony’s revolutionary 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology, customers canfeel sound from every direction and distance. Using Sound Field Optimisation, the soundbar uses built-in microphones to ingeniously measure the relative height and position of the soundbar and rear speakers. 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology then creates multiple phantom speakers by synthesizing sound waves based on the positional information. Thanks to this technology, Sony’s wide spatial sound field fills every part of the living space, so everyone gets the same sound experience, wherever they are in the room.
