Spatially squeezed surround audio coding (S3AC) has been previously shown to provide efficient coding with perceptually accurate soundfield reconstruction when applied to ITU 5.1 multichannel audio. This paper investigates the application of S3AC to the coding of Ambisonic audio recordings. Traditional ambisonics achieve compression and backward… CONTINUE READING
