Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio for Netflix Premium subscribers, 700 catalog titles affected

Like Apple's Spatial Audio available on Apple Music and Netflix, via iPhone/iPad and AirPods Pro/AirPods Max earphones/headphones, Sennheiser now offers Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio on Netflix as well and always based on a Dolby Atmos mix (master file in ADM or IAB format).

Audio and sound spatialization specialist (see our CES 19 news > Sennheiser Ambeo SoundBar, 13-speaker soundbar, Dolby Atmos and DTS:X, availability and indicative price update and IFA 22 > Sennheiser Ambeo Soundbar Plus and Ambeo Sub, new soundbars and subwoofers), the firm Sennheiser presented last summer its Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio technology intended to offer immersive listening (3D sound) through stereo equipment , headphones (binaural) or a pair of speakers. In short, unlike Apple's approach, that of Sennheiser (also in partnership with Netflix) was therefore to offer a 3D auditory experience to everyone, without the need for a multi-channel audio system (soundbar, Home Cinema system).

Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio, post-production spatialization tool

A professional tool, Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio allows sound engineers to finely control the audio spatialization of the various sound elements (surround scene, music, dialogues, localized effect, etc.) already present in the Dolby Atmos mix. Thus, it is possible for them to emphasize certain sounds while preserving, for example, the integrity of the dialogues. Namely, the processing is strictly transparent to the original mix, thus faithfully rendering the creator's intent.

Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio, 700 titles from the Netflix catalog and more to come…

The Ambeo 2-Channel Spatial Audio, associated with around thirty content when it was presented last summer, is available today on 700 titles from the Netflix catalog, at no additional cost for holders of a Premium subscription, for little to use Netflix on a stereo system. Of course, the list will grow rapidly in the future. To find out about the content concerned, simply enter the words "Spatial Audio" in the platform's search box or view the Spatial Audio badge in the technical information of the works present on their summary sheet (see photo below). ).
