Audio Objects for 4KTV

Audio Objects for 4KTV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The current buzz in the television industry is all about the promise of 4K, yet most of the talk is centered on video quality, with very little being said about the audio that supports the image.

The reason so little is being said about audio for 4K television is because it is an area that’s still in its infancy.


No standards currently exist that define exactly what audio for 4K is, but organizations like ATSC and SMPTE are now tackling the technical requirements while Dolby, DTS, Fraunhofer, and other manufacturers are sorting out the creation and consumer ends of the chain.


The part that is crystal clear is that the efforts of all the standards organizations and manufacturers are aimed at making the 4K audio experience both immersive and personalized, and that these goals are centered around object-based audio.

AudioControl Debuts Pair of Concert Ultra HD 4K Receivers | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


AudioControl just announced a pair of new Ultra HD 4K receivers.

The Concert AVR-6 and Concert AVR-8 are both designed to complement a 4K setup.

The AVR-8 boasts 200 watts to each of its seven channels into 4 ohms, while the AVR-6 drops that down to 100 watts per channel with 8 ohms.

Each receiver also offers 3D support, seven HDMI inputs, two ARC-compatible HDMI outputs, and several other connection options. Also worth noting is that each component can be configured for a 7.1 system or as a 5.1 system, with the two remaining channels serving a second zone.

Besides the Ultra HD 4K and 3D video pass-through and upscaling, both receivers have proprietary auto room setup and room correction with equalization.

ITU Submits New Broadcast 'Immersive' Audio Standard for Approval

ITU Submits New Broadcast 'Immersive' Audio Standard for Approval | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


The International Telecommunications Union has announced a new audio standard candidate for next generation immersive and personalized audio systems for TV and radio.

The new draft Recommendation “Advanced Sound System for Programme Production” is being submitted to ITU membership for the combined adoption and approval procedure.

The ITU’s Radiocommunication Sector’s Study Group 6—which established 5.1 channels as the surround sound standard for broadcasting two decades ago—says the new system will allow TV audiences to be “enveloped” in the sound as it traces the source of the audio track both laterally and vertically across the screen.

The ITU says it has developed a “single, coherent approach” that will provide the sufficient flexibility needed to allow various techniques to adapt to the newly proposed standard.
