At IBC, we are working with Fraunhofer IIS and its technology partners to deliver a reproduction of the MPEG-H Next-Generation Audio (NGA) trial that took place at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest with the European Broadcast Union (EBU) at the Fraunhofer booth B.80, Hall 8. Together with Solid State Logic (SSL), ATEME, Jünger Audio (now distributed worldwide exclusively by the Telos Alliance), Telos Alliance and Sennheiser, Fraunhofer IIS will showcase an end-to-end transmission chain for MPEG-H Audio content at Europe’s major broadcast industry event. Here, visitors can experience production, transmission, reception, and playback of immersive and interactive sound.Read More
