The MPEG-H 3D Audio is a recent MPEG standard that was designed to represent and render 3D audio experiences while supporting all known production paradigms (channel-based, object-based and Higher Order Ambisonics based audio) and reproduction setups (loudspeaker, headphone/binaural). As the audio production world moves forward to embrace Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR), MPEG-H found considerable adoption and re-use in recently finalized VR standards, such as MPEG-I OMAF(Omnidirectional Media Format), VR Industry Forum (VR-IF) Guidelines as well as 3GPP "VRStream" (Virtual Reality profiles for streaming applications) where it was selected as the audio standard for VR content delivered over 5G networks.

This workshop describes how MPEG-H technology finds its way into the new domain and provides an outlook into the MPEG-I 6DoF VR/AR future.
