The AES Audio Product Education Institute promotes a second online session to explore Immersive Audio in automotive audio design and applications, and how these technologies enable the expansion of vehicle acoustic perceptions.

Currently on the minds for both automotive brands and consumers, immersive audio reproduction results from a convergence of multiple technologies and concepts, from multichannel playback to acoustic auralization of perceived listening spaces, to DSP enhancement of sound reproduction. This session explores the different ways to translate actual immersive audio content and generate immersive experiences.  

During this webinar, Roger Shively (JJR Acoustics) will discuss how immersive audio is driving automotive audio speaker design, and how existing architectures are being used. The challenges of tuning and distributing sound for the intended experience, the role of cross-talk cancellation, content-based up-mixing vs context-based up-mixing, and how to tune the car for immersive sound formats, will also be explored. What approaches are relevant for entry, mid and highest tier systems?

Here are some of the questions to be addressed:

- How can existing stereo content still yield truly immersive experiences? 

- How to designing multichannel systems for object-based content inside the car? 

- What are meaningful immersive sound experiences from a consumer viewpoint?

- How to tune the car for immersive sound formats?
