Immersive production and translation to in-room or binaural delivery
The auditory system is broadly described, focused on its capability to produce spherical localisation and immersive sensation. Perception is used to discuss microphone pick-up, artificial spatialisation, in-room and binaural monitoring of immersive audio. Topics include listener experience, inter-subject variability and prevention of production-side listener fatigue.
