Recently films have been given 3-D treatments – both in theater and home theater.  However, since inception of 5.1 and 7.1 home theater speaker systems, audio has been neglected.  It is long been the holy grail of speaker to design to create 360 degree emitting speaker.

Iosono has finally designed a theater speaker system that will allow film goers to experience an all immersive soundscape.  Using three rows of speakers, lasers, and calibration software, the one "sweet spot" of a theater can now be opened to nearly two-thirds of the theater seating positions.

To accomplish this feat, either 200 or 500 speakers are used, dependent on the size of the theater.  The levels are calibrated for music playback and film level playback.  The hope is that this technology will be matched with 3-D films to bring a completely immersive experience to the viewer.
