AES Immersive Audio Academy

11. - 12.2.2021

Genelec is delighted to be a headline partner in the forthcoming AES Immersive Academy, a new one day online event focused on training and development in immersive and binaural audio.

Covering the highly topical subject of Immersive Audio within Recording, Games & VR, Live Events and Movies, the event features workshop sessions, partner sessions and a masterclass on producing high quality immersive audio, hosted by Andres Mayo of 360 Music Lab.

Our own teams will be contributing two sessions:

09.30 PT - Creating an Immersive Audio Room

Will Eggleston and Paul Stewart from our US office will discuss some of the thinking that goes into making a purpose built or temporary immersive monitoring space. Having just created the stunning new Genelec USA Experience Center in Boston, Will and Paul will draw on this recent project as a practical example of modern immersive room design.

Among the topics covered will be making the transition from stereo to 5.1 to 3D immersive layouts, cabling and signal flow, monitor selection and mounting, listening distance vs. SPL, bass management and calibration.

On demand - The Essentials of Immersive Audio

Eric Horstmann from our European team is an immersive audio expert with many years of experience of both the technical and workflow aspects of immersive audio.

This 45 minute session will cover the basic principles of immersive audio, the formats used, the creative process, how to set up a room, and the Genelec solutions that can help immersive audio professionals working with both in-room monitoring and headphones. If you’re looking for an accessible introduction to working with immersive, there is no better place to start.

Additionally, there will be a chance for registered attendees to win an AVID ProTools license - with the winner being drawn at the end of Andres Mayo’s Masterclass.

We look forward to seeing you!
