Enjoy 3D Surround Movie Sound on your British Airways flight!

British Airways is introducing new 3D surround sound for films screened on its long-haul flights. The technology is available to all passengers regardless of cabin, or whether they use their own
headphones or a pair provided by BA.

Creating an “immersive” experience, the carrier said the 3D audio is “achieved by taking the original 5.1 surround sound mix and creating a stereo encode which can be used on any in-flight entertainment system”. Not every film will be adapted to the new technology. BA has also started to roll-out a new range of headphones for passengers in every cabin. Those flying in First, Club World and World Traveller Plus will be able to use headphones with improved noise-cancelling technology; those in World Traveller will have new siliconetipped earbuds with greater noise
isolation and comfort, BA said.

Richard D’Cruze, the airline’s inflight entertainment manager, said: “3D surround sound adds a whole new dimension to watching your favourite movie, giving greater depth which really immerses you in the action and unfolding drama.”
