Ryan Burr, head of technical sales and application engineering, professional audio, Sennheiser Middle East said: “Today, we have all the tools required for breath-taking immersive audio recordings and mixing, and with the advance of Virtual Reality (VR), 3D audio has become, for the first time, a must-have for an application. The interest and appetite for 3D audio in the region is evidenced by the impressive number of attendees.
“With our workshop, we aimed to turn this interest into action which is why the larger portion of it was dedicated to hands-on sessions and walkthroughs of practical applications. We have no doubt that we will soon start to see the technology expand from being a niche domain, to an established and preferred audio standard with the power to deliver unforgettable experiences for listeners and audiences”
