One Soundtrack, Multiple Formats: Preparing Immersive Audio for Any-Sized Screen
There are big budgets and small budgets, big productions and small productions—but no matter the size or scale of the project, the audio team has to create high-quality sound for multiple delivery formats, immersive and stereo. As the demands increase, so do the challenges facing post-production sound artists. This panel will outline how sound supervisors approach different type budgets and different type formats, from 5.1 stems to immersive tracks for Theatrical, Television, and home theater and streaming delivery. The key is that workflows and decision-making need to be flexible and innovative.  (Sponsored by MPSE)
