Our Head of Audio Experience Oliver Kadel at the DOK Leipzig Exchange XR Conference in Germany doing a keynote presentation on Spatial Audio for Augmented Reality

We’ll cover the general approach to sound design for AR. We’ll look at the case study, the recent Apple Design Awards finalist: covering the authoring for hardware device playback vs binaural audio on headphones, balancing the sense of realism and authenticity with the entertainment factor and mitigating the differences in scale between the visuals and sound, and we’ll touch on how AI machine learning starting to shape the personalised listening experience.

“DOK Exchange is DOK Leipzig’s networking and inspiration programme on interactive and immersive storytelling with a focus on XR works and the community’s sustainable development.”

Please come to say hello if you’re attending and interested in these topics.
