Genelec Offers Free “Immersive Solutions 2018” Guidebook

Immersive audio has the ability to place listeners in the middle of a realistic 3D audio environment. To aid in the understanding of this technology, Genelec now offers its free “Immersive Solutions 2018” guidebook, which provides a practical overview of principles, formats and technical considerations involved in immersive audio reproduction.

The guidebook features recommended Genelec speakers, system configurations and software utilities. The guidebook can be downloaded at: https://www.genelec.com/immersive.

Genelec said immersive audio is still not fully understood by consumers and some industry professionals. Such audio systems are more complicated to configure and install. The guidebook was created to explain what’s involved and provide solutions for ensuring that immersive audio loudspeaker systems are deployed correctly.

The guidebook begins with an overview of how the ear perceives and localizes sound and how a properly-aligned loudspeaker system can deliver immersive audio. It explains how immersive audio loudspeaker systems are configured and covers the various available formats including Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D, DTS:X and 22.2.

The guidebook offers a number of immersive room solutions for compact, small, medium and large rooms and explains how Genelec’s GLM (Genelec Loudspeaker Manager) software can be used to precisely set up an immersive loudspeaker system.
