A comprehensive research paper documenting the use of spatial sound in DVD technology. Sets out to evaluate the communicative abilities of spatial sound and the implications of combining spatial sound along with selective multiple camera angles. Increases the rationale by investigating the use of a non-linear structure in the presentation of audio-visual DVD products. Asserts that no product currently integrates these deconstructed components into a singular framework, and therefore reports on the development of a concept titled Virtual Concert. Discusses the underlying concept of Virtual Concert, in relation to the combination of surround sound music mixes with the corresponding camera angle, presented in a non-linear structure. The emphasis is on practical subjective evaluation through a screening of Virtual Concert, and subsequent distribution of comprehensive questionnaires.
