Personalized Sound Experiences: MPEG-H

The multimedia world is moving towards more engaging end-user experiences, and audio is an important aspect of this.

These audio experiences include personalization and interactivity, allowing the listeners to optimize the audio experience for their needs. This may include improving intelligibility (e.g. increasing dialogue volume relative to the background), or selecting dialogue of a preferred language. Immersiveness is another feature, delivering more realistic and impressive auditory experiences, as well as flexibility and compatibility with headphones, a multitude of speaker layouts and environments.

The key to enabling these features is metadata and new audio codecs called NGA (Next Generation Audio) codecs. This webinar provides an overview on one of these codecs, MPEG-H Audio, and its latest developments including the support of ADM (Audio Definition Model) based workflows.


The webinar is open to everyone


Speakers: Adrian Murtaza, Michael Kratschmer, Yannik Grewe (Fraunhofer IIS)
