After 4 years of work, I announce the release September 16, 2015 to Dunod, in partnership with the National Audiovisual Institute, the book on the multichannel: from production to the distribution of 5.1, 3D binaural. This book is intended for sound engineers involved in the new 3D audio technologies as well as students who may choose to form. We have collaborated with Patrick Thevenot on the part monitoring system and Jean Luc Ohl on coding and dissemination party. Many employees have brought their expertise and their different points of view in the world of film, television, radio, music, interactivity and video game sound design, research, the production and training ... The book has a section where many web applications include operating in various fields and an audio part you can access on this website, on the page Webplayer well as on the website of Wiley . We also make available a tool in pro tools session shape to quickly diagnose listening ITU 5.1.

The term "multichannel" (sometimes said "surround") refers to the use of multiple audio tracks to the return on a system with multiple speakers. The field of applications is vast: home theater, film, HD TV, radio, video games, music ... There are many multi-channel sound formats (5.1, 3D sound, binaural sound, Ambisonics, WFS ...) and each of them has implications for sound recording, artistic creation, restitution, diffusion ... This comprehensive book takes stock of the subject: formats, listening systems, paperwork and production, sound recording, coding and dissemination, exploitation broadcast, or Internet media. On www.dunod.com, the reader can access almost 150 sound files to find out by listening to the different possible formats of multichannel sound.
