Two-dimensional multichannel sound systems such as 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1 are widely applied to movie theaters, home audio, and broadcasting. While new video formats such as 4k and 8k for the digital cinema is currently discussed, next-generation multichannel audio systems for the movie theater such as 10.2 and 22.2 are also discussed. New features on next-generation multichannel audio include the sensation of height and elevation of sound sources. Three-dimensional audio system is not only discussed among the sound professionals for movie productions but also among the broadcasters and home audio developers. This workshop will review the latest proposals of three-dimensional audio systems and will discuss the surround sound recording and reproduction to provide the sensation of height.
