Ambisonics is a 360-degree, full sphere sound recording, synthesis, and playback system. It is capable of accurately recording, processing, and playing back sounds from left/right, front/back, and up/down. Incorporating the vertical dimension makes Ambisonics a true periphonic, or surrounding, sound reproduction system, not artificial 2D representation spread out over multiple loudspeakers. Ambisonics creates the aural or sonic impression of a physical, three-dimensional space, where sounds appear like objects floating in the listening area. "Ambisonics: The Science and Art of Three-Dimensional Sound" will present Ambisonic technology relative to current surround trends and share information on software development taking place at Bowling Green State University's New Media and Emerging Technology Center.
