Brahma Microphones is to debut some new versions of its ambisonic microphones at the 141st AES Convention in Los Angeles.
The Audio Engineering Society (AES) conference throws a unique spotlight on the creative and technical challenges of providing immersive spatial audio to accompany virtual-reality and augmented reality media. These are the fastest-growing sections of the entertainment-audio markets.
“Film director George Lucas once stated that sound represents 50% of the motion-picture experience,” considers co-chair Andres Mayo This conference will demonstrate that convincing VR and AR productions, using a variety of playback devices, require audio that follows the motions of the subject, and produce a realistic immersive experience. Our program will spotlight the work of leading proponents in this exciting field of endeavor, and how realistic spatial audio can be produced from existing game-console and DSP engines
The expo features displays from leading-edge manufacturers and service providers looking to secure industry metrics for this emerging field.
