NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Next Galaxy Corp. (OTCBB:NXGA), a leading developer of innovative content solutions and fully immersive Consumer Virtual Reality technology, is proud to announce the release of a first of its kind virtual reality audio headset - Ceekars™. Ceekars™ is the world’s first integrated Virtual Reality (VR) audio headset specifically optimized to work with the Oculus Rift and other head mounted VR devices that lack audio to provide dynamic, reactive sound in parallel with immersive video, completing the ultimate VR experience.
“Samsung’s Gear VR headset is the latest example of the imminent Consumer Virtual Reality explosion, the visual display however is only one component in creating a complete VR experience. A 360 immersive audio headset is critical to complement the visual display and Next Galaxy is delighted to bring this technology to the market with Ceekars™,” commented Mary Spio, President of Next Galaxy Corp. “Content is the other part of the equation, for which we are developing Ceek as the world’s first VR entertainment and education hub. With our technology and content, we are stepping in and filling the gaps in the Consumer Virtual Reality marketplace, positioning Next Galaxy to be a major driver in the mainstream adoption of Consumer Virtual Reality.”
Our content creation process paired with Ceekars™ allows us to localize audio to the user’s ear; adding depth (up or down, etc.) and perspective (far or near), enabling consumers to envelope themselves in and naturally interact with 360-degree virtual soundscapes. In the case of a virtual concert, if a user is near the stage, what they hear is different than what they hear at the back of the room, a feature that is imperative to create the most realistic virtual experiences. As a user “walks” towards the crowd, the roar of the crowd gets louder. Further, Ceekars™ pick up a range of frequencies that traditional headphones miss, delivering accurate directional cues and enhanced audio resulting in compelling sound that creates a feeling of actually being at a venue.
A complete package, Next Galaxy’s VR audio headset features a haptic system that provides vibration, other tactile feedback is further being developed to recreate the sense of touching objects, such as an alligator’s skin or feeling the interior of a car. Ceekars™ come with a highly intuitive controller for use in wholly immersive environments where users cannot see their hands or keyboard. Ceekars™ also has a microphone for voice-activated commands and for communication with other users in social environments. Ceekars™ can be used as a standalone headphone for audio experiences beyond the best digital standards on the market today. Additional Ceekars Images and Video are available at NextGalaxyCorp.com
