Episode 37 – Matt Neutra (Bose)

29 May 2020

In this episode of the Immersive Audio Podcast, Oliver Kadel is joined by Matt Neutra from Bose via Zoom from Boston, US.

Matt Neutra creates unique prototype experiences that are used as the stepping stones for production-ready experiences for retail and beyond. Since 2005 he has been responsible for product demonstrations that make their way to retail locations around the world. Matt’s primary responsibilities include the oversight and development of the diverse tools and workflows used to create world-class sensory experiences.

Matt scours the earth for the tools that will enable the impossible. When the tools don’t exist, they have to be created. Matt often has to manage external vendors to define and create these new tools. Matt’s goal in life is to never be the smartest person in the room, question everything in the pursuit of deeper understanding and get work done with joy and enthusiasm.

In this episode, Matt talks about two decades of working at Bose Corporation, Bose AR platform, unique features of Mach1 Spatial Audio System and the current market landscape of immersive audio formats.
