Audio for Cinema has always struggled to replicate the motion shown on the screen, a fact that became more apparent with 3D films. Several methodologies for "immersive sound" are currently under evaluation by the industry, with theater owners and film companies both advising that they will not tolerate a format war, with a common format a commercial requirement.
The two major methods of creating immersive sound and audio motion are referred to as "object-based" and "channel-based." Each has its strengths and limitations for retrofit into the current cinema market. With few sound mixers experienced in either of these techniques, we're pleased to welcome two of the pioneers, one with experience at Auro3D and the other in Atmos, in a discussion of their experiences and comments on working with the two systems.
