This panel will cover the topic of immersive audio and spatial audio. It will seek to examine these specific fields through the lens of the newest audio trends, remixing albums to conform to the Apple/Dolby Atmos and Sony standards. First, the program will explore, as a practical matter, what's required for these remixes to be made and sold. Then, a broader discussion will ensue about the impact this trend might have on audio engineers, musicians, consumers, and the industry at large. Please join us as we seek to uncover the secrets of the ever-evolving immersive audio field.
