Spatial audio creates an acoustical experience intended to heighten immersion by simulating a surround-sound setup. Simply put, spatial audio is the ability to recreate the way we hear sound in real-life.
In our everyday lives, we hear sounds and voices from their relevant distance and orientation to us. People in front of us will sound different than when they are behind us. The ability to recreate this experience mandates a method to capture sound in a given location exactly as it was originally produced. With spatial audio enabled, consuming content—like videos, games, and movies—becomes a better experience for anyone.
