The session will touch on the tools and practical experience of realizing the promise of the ultra resolution visual-aural experience and the standardization considerations of bonding the two in a single production-to-consumer format. 2014 has so far seen practical production, encoding, and transmission of 4k and 8k and its equivalent quality audio complement with the Sochi Olympics and the World Cup games in Brazil. Implementation of compression formats, auto scalability, and backwards compatibility are topics of discussion. Re-imagined production techniques and workflows; transmission, interface, and playback standards are still in development. The extended localization, multi-directivity, three dimensional acoustic space generation, and increased optimal listening zones for audio for 4K and 8K will likely provoke end user acceptance with creation of a unified reproduction of reality immersion experience in a single format.
