Summary

In this episode of the Immersive Audio Podcast, Oliver Kadel and Monica Bolles are joined by the CEO of Atmoky – Markus Zaunschirm from Graz, Austria.   

Markus Zaunschirm MSc, PhD is a renowned spatial audio expert and co-founder of Atmoky. During his research, he combined advanced signal processing with the models of human perception and invented a unique method for spatial audio playback for headphones.
