Sound - the fourth dimension for 3D?

Today's incarnation of stereoscopic 3D, currently sweeping cinemas and pubs, with the living room the next to succumb is all about the look. Not just the extra dimensional images but polarized glasses, screens and now the new breed of plasma TV sets. But audio has not been left behind. Sound for 3D is being discussed and researched seriously, although quite what it will be is unclear right now. What we do know is that 5.1 is linked to 3D, just as it is for 2D high definition. Kevin Hilton investigates the options.
