Recently, the ISO/MPEG standardization group created the MPEG-H 3D Audio specification to go along with Ultra High Definition Television (UHDT) video. The specification features several unique elements, such as handling of channel-based content, object-based content and higher order ambisonics (HOA) content or the capability of rendering encoded high-quality content on a wide range of loudspeaker setups (22.2 ... 5.1 ... stereo / headphones). This workshop provides an overview of the MPEG-H 3D Audio standard regarding its underlying architecture, technology, performance and how to produce immersive content for it.
