There are a number of competing formats to choose from in Immersive Audio: Auro-3D, Dolby Atmos, DTS-X, NHK 22.2 and more. This tutorial will focus on practical and theoretical considerations when producing content for immersive formats, especially with regards to recording and mixing. We will suggest methodologies as well as explore emerging standards and workflows in order to be positioned to take advantage of the ongoing developments in the field, and discuss market considerations and possible synergy between Immersive Audio and audio for Virtual/Augmented Reality. Panelists with research experience and published productions will discuss and present examples of their work for the various formats, provide valuable insight into the formats available and provide practical advice about how to be “Immersive Audio” ready.
