After many years of discussion in the AES about object-based audio, we are now seeing these concepts being adopted into mainstream industry standards and services, including the next generation of digital television systems within DVB and ATSC. Developments in IP-based production technology also allow broadcasters to take advantage of the benefits of object-based audio in the production environment. This workshop will give the audience an insight into the opportunities and challenges faced by broadcasters when implementing object-based end-to-end systems. It will also discuss the potential developments of object-based audio systems beyond this current generation, with presentations from two large-scale collaborative research projects investigating the future of object-based audio, as applied to spatial audio and music.
This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Broadcast and Online Delivery
