							<h2>What is Virtual Acoustics?</h2>
92 93 94 95
							<p>VA is a software that was created at the Institute of Technical Acoustics (ITA) at RWTH Aachen University in Germany over a decade ago as an auralization application - one of the first of its kind.<br /> 
							<br>Over the years, VA has been reinvented and improved by dint of several contributions in the scope of Bachelor, Master and PhD theses to meet state-of-the-art standards in audio rendering and spatial audio reproduction.</p>

							<h2>Is Virtual Acoustics suitable for me?</h2>
							<p>Until now, VA is used for scientific research purposes at ITA. It has been designed to meet high quality audio rendering &amp; reproduction demands for listening experiments as well as Virtual Reality research.
							<br /><br />
							<i>Previously unreleased, VA will be continued as an open source project and can be used for a variety of applications.</i>
							</p>
							<p>VA is made for Windows, but can also be used on other platforms.
