Binaural listening and immersive audio

In this session we’re exploring some of the ideas that broadcasters have had in recent years to bring immersive audio to their audience. With a big increase in headphone use and earbuds with mobile devices, binaural listening has expanded with the use of new recording tools and techniques, delivery to the audience and innovative ways of listening.

There will be a few presentations exploring recording techniques and delivery to the audience, followed by a discussion with an expert panel.

This online event is part of the Music and Radio 60-minute sessions organized by the EBU Music Unit.
