Immersive sound has become a great buzzword in the audio industry over the last few years. But it is often the case that immersive sound installations involve complex design work and multiple loudspeaker positions.

With this online seminar, we will showcase a new approach to immersive soundscapes by means of our revolutionary technology. The webinar will provide an overview of our 3D beamforming capabilities and explore sonic immersion in conjunction with wave field synthesis. Among other aspects, we will consider spatial sound reproduction technologies, define ‘immersive sound’ and other related terms, and outline the main criteria for quality.

By the end of the seminar, you will have a good understanding of how 3D beamforming, virtual sound sources, and their individual configuration can deliver unrivaled flexibility for sound designers and acoustic planners to develop central matrix system-based immersive audio installations.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the spatial sound reproduction of zero-dimensional, one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional sound systems
  • Find out more about the characteristics of immersive audio and the criteria used to assess the quality of immersive soundscapes
  • Understand the basics of traditional wavefield synthesis in creating immersive soundscapes
  • Discover the impact of our technology with 3D beamforming, virtual sound sources, and multi-beam configuration for the sound design of immersive sonic experiences
