More and more content is being produced in immersive formats like Dolby Atmos® or MPEG-H Audio, while the majority of users still only experience stereo. AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio translates an original immersive mix into two channels of audio that deliver a spatial experience far beyond stereo. It transforms any stereo speakers or headphones into an enhanced spatial experience, no end-user upgrades required.

»I’m a huge fan of AMBEO. I experimented with it a lot on the ‘Fear Street’ movies and was impressed with how the surround channel information was represented. I’m always looking for ways to get that Cinematic sound at home and on ‘The Adam Project’ I was able to make the mix sound really immersive on everything from high end soundbars to iPhones which I believe helps the audience connect more emotionally. It’s been a perfect format on ‘Stranger Things’. In the Atmos mix, Vecna’s voice wraps around you which is an important part of making him scary and larger than life. The fact that AMBEO is able to help recreate that in stereo is very impressive to me.«
Mark Paterson, Re-recording Mixer, ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4
»We feel AMBEO Spatial Audio offers a meaningful improvement for Netflix members. Re-recording mixers often tell me that it better translates their detailed immersive mix work to stereo. Crucially, this process preserves the original sound mix and respects creative intent with a remarkably clean sound.«
Scott Kramer, Manager for Sound Technology at Netflix

No Additional Mix

AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio is not another mix. Instead, it is created from open, industry-standard deliverables, like ADM or IAB files. The renderer easily fits into standard encoding pipelines. It outputs a standard two-channel audio file that can be delivered as a drop-in replacement for stereo.

Mixers in Control

While AMBEO 2-Channel Spatial Audio is not a separate mix, creators still have granular control over spatialization. Mixers can define the amount of AMBEO processing for each group separately. Re-recording mixers can dial-in the desired amount of processing, from standard stereo mixdown up to full AMBEO effect and anywhere in-between. Dialog can be left untouched, while maximum spatialization can be applied to ambience and sound effects.
