SAN FRANCISCO, 9 March 2007. DiamondWare will provide 3D voice technology for RealWorld, Total Immersion Software's mission rehearsal and training simulator. 3D voice adds the elements of realism and immersion, improving tactical coordination and providing a simulation of live voice and radio communications in a mission.

RealWorld, developed by Total Immersion Software under contract to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), delivers a tool suite providing drag-and-drop ease in creating simulators so real that it can be used to train teams of professionals to handle complex situations, such as military missions, rescue operations, and natural disasters.

"Adding 3D voice to RealWorld is going to give trainees an even more immersive and real experience. 3D voice feels very natural in this environment," says Keith Weiner, CEO of DiamondWare. "We are excited to be validated by Total Immersion and DARPA, because it migrates our technology from tactical communications systems to simulators."
