In 2018, the effectiveness of combining stereoscopic 360-degree experiences with binaural audio content was confirmed by a study conducted for Magic Horizons at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The latest worldwide studies on the effects of relaxation, regeneration after stress, virtual reality and interactive content were consulted by Dr. Christian Stein at gamelab.berlin, part of the Excellence Cluster Image Knowledge Design of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The study rates the effectiveness of the Magic Horizons concept as thoroughly positive.
“The studies show that, for the decisive degree of perceived presence in order to achieve a high degree of relaxation effects, VR is currently the best possible technology. The visual intensity is supported by the stereoscopic content, which Magic Horizons also offers. The high rendering quality of the Magic Horizons experiences also plays a decisive role here, and reinforces the presence effect.” (Quote from Dr. Christian Stein, study from 1/11/2018)
