W8 - We Have You Surrounded—Mastering for Multichannel

Darcy Proper, Senior Mastering Engineer, Galaxy Studios - Mol, Belgium
Simon Heyworth, Owner/Chief Engineer, Super Audio Mastering - Devon, UK
Thor Levgold, Owner/Chief Engineer, Sonovo Mastering - Stavanger, Norway

With the increasing adoption of home cinema systems, DVD releases of performing artists as well as the EBU specifying 5.1 surround audio as standard for HDTV, the need for professional mastering in multichannel formats is growing. For many, working in surround represents a change of paradigm and brings with it unique challenges and requirements. The panelists in this workshop will share some of the types of challenges they face in the course of their work and some
practical tips for handling them when they arise in stereo, surround, and multimedia productions.
