Following the recent trend of employing parametric enhancement tools for increasing coding or spatial rendering efficiency, Spatial Audio Object Coding (SAOC) is one of the recent standardization activities in the MPEG audio group. SAOC is a technique for efficient coding and flexible, user-controllable rendering of multiple audio objects based on transmission of a mono or stereo downmix of the object signals. The SAOC system extends the MPEG Surround standard by re-using its spatial rendering capabilities. This paper will describe the chosen reference model architecture, the association between the different operational modes and applications, and the current status of the standardization process.
