Product Design Considerations for Implementing 3D Audio Algorithms within Existing Multichannel Formats

Nicolas Sincaglia, Sylvain Rebaud

Spatializer Audio Labs

This paper discusses the technical considerations of implementing 3D Audio speaker/headphone algorithms using the multichannel formats available today. Demand for virtual surround sound requires engineers to use multichannel standards in ways never intended by their designers. The consumer audio industry's high expectations and inexperience with virtual audio creates unique engineering issues of which potential solutions and trade-offs are discussed.
