Carolina Games Summit

Organisers listen as Vibras extend their headset partnership for a further year.

GOLDSBORO, N.C. (April 20, 2010) – VIBRAS FIVE.ONE® will again be the official headset of the 6th Annual Carolina Games Summit on February 5, 2011. Carolina Games Summit and VIBRAS FIVE.ONE first partnered earlier this year when VIBRAS sponsored all XBOX 360 tournaments allowing players to experience first hand the crisp, loud, clear, directional sound capabilities of the ten (10) individual speakers (five per ear cup).

The summit is held at the Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, NC. Over 1,500 attendees will participate in this all day event focused on the gaming industry. Participants can sit in on educational sessions from industry speakers, interact with exhibitors demonstrating the latest products and software, and test their gaming skills in variety competitive video game tournaments.

VIBRAS will again be providing the first officially licensed XBOX 5.1 channel headset for use in the tournaments with additional headsets to be given away in select tournaments. Gamers will be able to get their questions answered and meet with company representatives face to face at their exhibition booth throughout the entire event.

Tracy Schmeltzer, Producer of the Summit, states "After five years our attendees expect truly innovative additions to our event. VIBRAS FIVE.ONE was the extraordinary addition that changed the dynamics of our tournaments completely, giving each attendee their own 3D sound space, while effectively eliminating ambient noise."

Michael Moore, a current H2O clan member who attended last year’s event, commented, "The headset provides clear, precise tones so that you can hear the slightest movement. You can hear the grass crinkle as it's stepped upon, the distant whirring of an oncoming chopper miles away, and the distant cries of enemies alerting each other of your presence."

Tracy added, "This one addition allowed us to add more spectators and manage the other competitors without disturbing current players, two issues we have struggled with in the past, from a production standpoint these headsets are now vital to our events future success."
