We recently announced that Nokia 8 is the world’s first smartphone with OZO Audio. But what exactly is OZO Audio and why is it so critical for content creators and end users? We saw down with Kai Havukainen, OZO Audio Product Manager, to talk about spatial audio and why it’s so important towards achieving a true feeling of immersion.
HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, just announced the Nokia 8, a high performance, beautifully crafted smartphone, designed with content creators in mind. At the heart of this new smartphone is the ability to capture and replay immersive experiences for those who love to create and share special memories.
At Nokia, we believe that a core ingredient to making virtual reality feel like life is spatial 360° audio. Built into our OZO camera and captured through its eight microphones, our proprietary OZO Audio technology is our newest standalone product that can now be licensed by any camera or smartphone maker. OZO Audio is an advanced spatial audio technology with 3D recording and playback capabilities. Designed specifically for smartphone and consumer camera manufacturers, OZO Audio enables you to capture spatial sound and then play it back as if you were there.
