Immersive sound has seen a rapid development in the recent past. It includes many applications, encompassing a diverse range of experiences that cater to both individuals and groups, even when separated by distances. Significant factors influencing these experiences' quality and immersion lies in the artful application of audio engineering techniques for capturing and reproducing sound, as well as the use of algorithmic solutions and rendering methods. These elements work in harmony to immerse our senses and make the experience compelling. This talk will explore recent research and developments in immersive sound. We will discuss the opportunities, challenges, and design factors we must consider as we move toward the future of creating compelling immersive sound experiences.
