Montreux Jazz Festival 2018 in Genuine Immersive 3D Audio
Projects · Cologne based 3D-audio production company Sphereo has been contracted by the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival, EPFL University Lausanne and Western Digital to record and stream performances in the Stravinsky Auditorium in Montreux.
A key feature of Sphereo 3D-audio is its use of ‘3rd order ambisonics to binaural’ and SPAT Revolution 3D-audio mixing engine, both in combination with a custom-built Sphereo position-tracking system.
The Sphereo audio mixes use precisely positioned instruments and soloists (in height and pan) which smoothly and accurately follow a moving 360 degree video picture in the Virtual Reality headset. This approach makes the VR live concert experience truly realistic.
This is a giant step forward in bringing high-quality 3D-audio and Virtual Reality to consumer devices such as mobile phones, tablets or VR Goggles.
Thanks to Sphereo for relying on Remote Recording Network’s music mixing expertise.
