Samsung chose 'to visualize 360° sound' to help consumers familiarize with omni-directional speaker. An idea that helps even those who encounter the product online to experience the 360° sound.
Samsung collaborated with Visual Artist group Artisan (aka Artisan) to visualize 360 degree sound waves coming out from the Wireless audio-360. Ben Kreukniet and his Artisan team have created a physical representation of sound waves in real time using an installation that fuses 411 laser beams with a 4K holographic projection and real-time sound analysis software to physically fill a room with sound and light. It was an exciting challenge because the sound visualization trial with the 360 wireless audio was never been done before. This experiment was recorded live and everything was driven by the Samsung Wireless Audio 360. No post-production CGI effects have been added.
'The 360° Sound Experiment' is the most watched video in the Samsung TV Channel with 2,170,000 views (with the numbers continuously increasing).
The objective was to show the 360° sound feature of the product as it is. The viewers can feel and understand the product's performance with sound visualizations and no added CGI effects. Samsung worked with teams of professionals (Little Dot Studios & Visual Artist Group of Artisan) to create fascinating visual choreography and installation for the video. Samsung also composed addictive music in order to attract viewers to voluntarily spread the clip.
