—The future of immersive audio by Sol Rezza
“As we embark on a journey into the future of immersive audio, we are entering uncharted territories of sound and storytelling. Technological advances bring us closer to an era where audio environments transport us to unimaginable realms, forging experiences that redefine the very essence of storytelling. “
To what extent will the development of spatial audio and the implementation of artificial intelligence affect the production and consumption of immersive narratives, and how will they shape the future of audio experiences in the coming years?
The integration of Next Generation Audio (NGA) technologies, including spatial audio, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing narrative development in audiovisual productions, enabling immersive and interactive experiences. However, challenges arise in terms of access to technology, ethical considerations regarding data privacy, and minority representation.
This research aims to analyze the impact of NGA, spatial audio, and AI on user experiences to provide valuable insights and recommendations for content creators and developers on the effective implementation of these emerging audio technologies and the advancement in the field of immersive storytelling.
- Conduct comprehensive research on the impact of next-generation audio, audio spatialization, and artificial intelligence on narrative experiences in the coming years.
- Develop specific recommendations for content creators on effective implementation of emerging audio technologies for dynamic and personalized narratives.
- Create a repository of up-to-date audio-related tools for immersive productions, increasing accessibility and broadening access to production and development technologies.
- Implement an awareness campaign to analyze the ethical use of personal and third-party data in digital platforms for creative work.
- Develop inclusive and diverse datasets that accurately reflect a wide range of perspectives in Next Generation Audio.
- Propose a policy position to protect user data access, privacy, and improve distribution and accessibility of audio technologies for freelancers.
- Gather insights on the future of immersive storytelling through surveys and focus groups with industry stakeholders.
- Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of implementing Next Generation Audio, audio spatialization, and artificial intelligence in audiovisual productions.
