The live industry is living a transition from traditional left-right, mostly dual mono, to immersive systems. In this workshop, specific challenges of immersive audio for live are presented and addressed.

Where does research aiming to create virtual sounds that are indistinguishable from reality intersect with today’s cutting edge game audio technologies?

Producing immersive content is, nowadays, more accessible than it ever was, thanks to new tools, which are available for free or at very low costs. But achieving great results, compatible with high quality standards, is still not an easy task. In this hands-on workshop we unveil the secrets of 360 audio production during 3 intensive hours.

For nearly 30 years the predominant surround audio format for cinema, home video, streaming, marketing, and music has been 5.1. Workflows for content creation, delivery, streaming, and playback are common, robust, and well understood. Immersive decoders allow for a variety of immersive playback scenarios using a standard, codec-agnostic, 5.1 deliverable which provides a simple, economical solution to broadening the footprint for immersive audio.
