This engineering brief introduces a rendering method compatible with various input audio formats and output reproduction layouts. By using audio scene analysis, N-channel audio input signals are converted to channel-independent spatial parameters then sound fields are rendered based on the M-channel output loudspeaker layout with maintaining spatial information of original audio formats. Therefore, proposed method enabled N-to-M flexible audio rendering with immersive sound perception.
