LOS ANGELES, Dec. 4, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- GenAudio Inc., developer of AstoundSound® 3D sound localization cue software, will be featured at ShowBiz Expo's discussion of 3D audio for 2D and 3D motion picture sound on Sunday, December 5, 2010 at the Los Angeles Convention Center from 11:00am to 12 noon.
GenAudio Founder and CEO Jerry Mahabub will address entertainment production professionals about new developments in 3D audio, and specifically how the company's professional audio tools including AstoundSound® and AstoundSurround® can increase audience engagement and excitement for both 2D and 3D movies.
The AstoundSound process for 3D audio creates the accurate perception of elevation and depth without causing any phase or tone colorization issues. GenAudio's professional audio tools are applied to sound sources during mixing and before multi-channel audio encoding, and are compatible with all surround delivery formats.
Unlike other digital audio enhancement packages, with GenAudio's software-based solution there is no need to purchase or install any additional playback equipment in a movie theater, concert venue or in the home to experience AstoundSound 3D audio. A key benefit of GenAudio's approach to 3D sound is that the two channel fold-down from the 5.1 theatrical mix, when audio is processed using the AstoundSound professional audio toolset, re-creates the 5.1 surround sound audio experience with any two speakers or headphones.
ShowBiz Expo Los Angeles, December 4 – 5, 2010, is a leading event for entertainment production professionals that gravitates everyone in show business together under one roof. For more information about ShowBiz Expo Los Angeles, visit http://www.theshowbizexpo.com/index.html
