EBU publishes tools for NGA production – The EAR Production Suite

The EBU and its members BBC R&D and IRT have released the ‘EAR Production Suite’, a set of tools for producing immersive and personalizable audio content suitable for any distribution codec. Currently available production tools are generally tied to one of the existing commercial Next Generation Audio systems (AC-4, MPEG-H and DTS:X), with a codec-specific range of features. The EAR Production Suite, which builds on the easily converted Audio Definition Model format, is designed to ease the adoption of Next Generation Audio (NGA) by making a system-independent path available.
