Josh Antonuccio, Ohio University - Athens, OH, USA

Audio is going to be essential for creating immersive experiences, but what should the aspiring producer or engineer learn in order to excel, and how is higher education responding to the skills gap in this new field? This session is led by Josh Antonuccio, lecturer at the School of Media Arts and Studies at Ohio University and co-creator of the Immersive Media Initiative, and Richard Warp, founder of Intonic and VR audio professional. Topics include workflows and technology for immersive platforms, considerations for working with spatial audio, and the growing need for audio development expertise within augmented and virtual reality. Enjoy a fascinating “fireside” discussion covering educational, technical, and professional aspects of producing audio in the domain of “the 3 Rs”–VR, AR, and MR.
