A description of an object-based audio workflow for media productions
The object-based audio approach can provide the audience with a new immersive sound experience that so far could not be achieved with conventional channel-based productions. Moved by these benefits, the interest of the media industry in applying this concept has increased dramatically in the recent years. However, the object-based approach does not only imply an improved listening experience, but it also brings a much more flexible workflow and new possibilities to sound engineers, from the recording process to the playback systems. This paper presents the results of a research project in this regard, in order to provide the creative production process with a flexible and simple workflow using the advantages of the object-based audio technologies.
