Based on the sound type, the global 3D audio market can be segmented into binaural audio and ambisonics
recently won favors of various social mediums for their 360-degree videos.
Zylia, the Poland-based manufacturer of multitrack audio recording technologies, has unveiled its new ZYLIA Studio PRO and ZYLIA Ambisonics Converter plug-ins for the Pro Tools Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).
Standard ZYLIA Studio software gives users the ability to capture immersive 3D audio (360/VR/AR) with high-definition quality (3rd order Ambisonics), use virtual microphones to get control over the recorded sound field, and use convenient presets for surround or ambient recordings (such as 5.1, 7.1, and 5.1.4 up to 22.2).
* Standard Sound Playback Formats: Mono, stereo, quadrophonic, 5.1, 7.1, ambisonics
, binaural, and Dolby Atmos
US-based Pro Sound Effects (PSE), which produces sound effects libraries for media production, has released Chicago Ambisonics
, its second Ambisonics
Google is banking on ambisonics
to develop its Omnitone system, a technique that simulates the full sphere of sound around the user, giving coordinates in 3D space and allowing the renderer to convert the coordinate into appropriate sound waves, Tech Crunch reports.
To identify the best approach, Bruel & Kjaer carried out an investigation contrasting five methods for the reproduction of background noise, including ETSI EG 202 396-1, Higher-order ambisonics
, matrix inversion method, ETSI TS 103 224 and matrix inversion method optimized for a specific device.
Also, Technicolor has been assigned the prestigious task of developing the standards for High Order Ambisonics
technology, which delivers more immersive audio than today's surround sound.
"With this new product, we hope to engage with VR production agencies, VR content creators, the Ambisonics
community as well as studio engineers and owners"
