While there are an increasing number of audio technologies aimed at improving the spatial rendering of live and recorded sounds in homes, performance spaces, cinemas, automobiles, and personal audio systems, there currently exists no standardized or recommended methods for evaluating their perceived spatial quality. This workshop will provide an overview of some current and future best-practices for subjective evaluation of spatial aspects of sound reproduction with the goal of helping promote methods that provide more accurate, reliable, and meaningful data.
