W2 - Capturing Height in Surround

While a great deal of development has gone into reproducing audio in the horizontal plane, the next step in immersive audio moves into the vertical dimension. New transmission formats, recording techniques, microphone configurations, and processing methods are needed to fill this demand. At this workshop new methods to capture and create height information for a true 3-D listening experience will be presented by a panel of music producers, engineers, and researchers. Production techniques to capture Z axis information for later reproduction in surround playback environments with height channels will be presented. Post-production methods to create 3-D ambiance including up-mix algorithms for 2.0 and 5.1 to Auro 3-D and mono to 5.1 and 8.1, up to 22.2. will be discussed as well. Recordings made using these technologies will be demonstrated during an additional workshop (see Workshop 12) at NYU on Saturday.
