During the past three decades, many influential technology generations have come out of the ISO/MPEG standardization body for the Audio and consumer electronics world, including well-known and ubiquitous specifications for perceptual audio coding like mp3 the AAC family of low bitrate codecs. More recently, MPEG-H audio has been delivered as a universal and efficient format spatial audio / 3D audio has been delivered.
This workshop reports on the main stream of recent MPEG Audio activities to develop the MPEG-I 6DoF Audio specification as a comprehensive and efficient format for audio for Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR/AR). It outlines the technological challenges for development and quality evaluation of suitable candidate technologies that had to be overcome in the course of the standards development process. Also, the workshop provides a snapshot of the current state of the process and illustrates the achievements by A/V examples.
