Ambisonics Sound Technology: a Look at 3D Sound Design
Presented by Charles Veasey at the IMERSA 2016 Summit. He is from the Interactive Dome IAIA and University of New Mexico, (interactivedome.net/)
Ambisonics is a full sphere surround sound technology that provides three-dimensional reproduction over arbitrary speaker systems. The technique can be recorded, encoded, and decoded independent of the number of playback speakers making it an ideal standard for the fulldome and other immersive systems. Ambisonics is a patent-free, well-researched technology with supporting hardware and software tools. This presentation provides a history of Ambisonics and the benefits of its workflow within immersive production.
