Upmix solutions are coming to the market with increasing speed. Broadcasters need those solutions especially for HD services to fulfill the expectations of the audience for consistent surround sound presentation. Various approaches can be found that try to provide a convincing illusion of a discrete surround sound signal. In this workshop, 6 company representatives will present their products in a short introduction. Then their upmix results of 2 stereo tracks previously given to them will be played and discussed. Also, downmix aspects will be touched as this is also a vital ingrediant of a suitable surround sound signal.
