The Verband Deutscher Tonmeister (VDT – the German Association of Sound Engineers) is hosting a two-day workshop on workflow for 3D sound productions. The workshop takes place 5-6 October in the newly built ‘Aurotorium’ dubbing and screening theatre at Galaxy Studios in Mol, Belgium where the Auro-3D format was developed. As explained by the VDT, 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound formats are not capable of reproducing a three-dimensional sound field, therefore making it impossible to immerse listeners into a lifelike experience. A true 3D reproduction allows for the creation of a unique and incredibly realistic sound scenery, and the approach requires consideration of new aspects in the production process. Focus of the first day of the workshop is the introduction of height as the most important factor in the 3D listening experience. Concept, vision and requirements for the next generation sound formats will be presented and the trends and innovations in sport, music and movie production explained. The second day will concentrate on the Auro-3D format. Conceptual fundamentals, workflow related questions and solutions, introduction to 3D recording and mixing techniques, up-mixing, down-mixing and distribution of content. Bert van Daele (CTO, Auro Technologies), Patrick Lemmings (Tonmeister, Galaxy Studios) and Wilfried van Baelen (CEO, Auro Technologies and Galaxy Studios) will conduct the seminar. Further information, registration and attendance fees can be found on the VDT website. www.tonmeister.dewww.galaxystudios.com

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.
