New course 2015-16: Introduction to Spatial and 3D audio

Welcome new students to the blog of the subject “3D audio”. We hope you will find this resource useful.

By spatial audio we refer to the investigation of techniques for sound

  • recording and encoding
  • transmission
  • manipulation (postproduction)
  • exhibition

taking into account the spatial properties and the spatial nature of sound. Spatial audio would be a term of widespread academic usage.

By 3D audio we mostly refer to the spatial audio techniques which  go beyond traditional stereo or 5.1/7.1 surround and which normally include height. It is rather a commercial term.
