WHY BINAURAL? WHY NOW?

With more and more people able to access broadcast content on portable devices, the quality of the headphone listening experience is becoming more important. This workshop will explore how binaural audio technology could create immersive spatial sound experiences for those listening over headphones.

The subject is relevant to both radio and television, as well as online media. Presentations will provide an introduction to many different aspects of binaural audio, from production and distribution challenges to open research questions. Panel discussions will allow content makers and technologists to question the technology providers and researchers about how we can use binaural audio to enhance the listening experience for audiences.

WORKSHOP SESSIONS
