Designing Rooms for Immersive Audio

May 31, 2016

Leaders of the residential custom electronics channel began the push toward immersive audio years ago, and it has been a mainstay at the CEDIA show for years. Its prevalence in the home grows with each passing year, and emerging technologies have made a truly immersive audio experience — one that completely envelopes the user — a reality.

Enthusiasts and luxury-minded homeowners alike are blown away by well-prepared home theater spaces with properly executed immersive audio systems.

In the CEDIA course “Designing Rooms for Immersive Audio,” you will get an overview of the technology along with a discussion of the performance goals of a proper audio playback system for the common immersive formats. This session, recorded live at ISE 2016 and now offered conveniently online, uses case studies to examine how to design a room and correctly place speakers to ensure your clients the best possible results regardless of format. The presenters will discuss common obstacles and practical methods to deliver the best performance for different room scenarios.

Register for this course.

    I believe that everything with home theater will continue to become more immersive. Eventually, it will become more like we're in the movies rather than watching them!
