W5 - Immersive Audio with Height Channels: Theory and Practice

David Bowles, Swineshead Productions LLC - Berkeley, CA, USA
Paul Geluso, New York University - New York, NY, USA
Juergen Peissig, Sennheiser Electronics - Wedemark, Germany
Agnieszka Roginska, New York University - New York, NY, USA

The next step in immersive audio is to move into the vertical dimension through height channel recording and reproduction. Vital to this dialogue is a clearer understanding via psychoacoustics of our hearing perception outside the horizontal planes: how this perception influences engineers’ choices in microphone technique and speaker placement. Members of this panel will discuss different recording techniques to capture height channels and whether this audio information can be integrated into conventional stereo and surround-sound recordings. The growing number of 3D mix engines and Blu-ray encoding formats will also be discussed. This workshop will be divided into two parts: a technical panel discussion at Javits Center, followed by playback sessions at the James Dolan Studios at New York University.
