2:30 – 3:30 p.m.: 3 Studios, 1 Soundtrack: Immersive Sound Collaboration With Effects, Dialog, Music

Description: The Immersive Sound Revolution began in the large re-recording stages on big-budget films. It has since spread to all aspects of the production and post-production industries for film and television. Now there are “near-field” studios, sound design suites, dialog options and music mix facilities feeding immersive tracks to the re-recording stage for the final mix. Here, our panel of experts—from multiple immersive studios and multiple audio disciplines—discuss how a networked audio workflow contributes both to the creativity and efficiency of today’s immersive audio projects.
