Abstract:
Recently, the concept of object-based audio has received quite a lot of attention. Although not completely new - it has been used for gaming applications for many years - the use of audio objects in audio systems for digital cinema, home entertainment and broadcast is in its infancy. In this panel session, experts from various industries explain their view on the use of object-based audio in their field. Similarities and differences are highlighted, as well as considerations such as bandwidth, rendering, compatibility, creative options, etc. An overview is given of the various activities and the relations between them, as well as the value chain from creation to the home.
