The MPEG-H Audio System:
Next-Generation Technology Providing Immersive and Interactive Sound.

Fraunhofer has developed this system, based on the MPEG-H 3D Audio standard, to offer an enhanced sound experience for broadcast and new media services such as UHDTV, immersive music services, 4K video streaming or Virtual Reality.

Immersive audio

Be in the middle of the action: The MPEG-H Audio system delivers enveloping immersive sound from all around the listener.

Be closer to your idol: Immersive music services powered by MPEG-H bring fans and artists closer together. Listeners will be immersed in sound from every direction, just as the content creator intended.

Personalized Audio

Hear your home team™: The MPEG-H Audio System allows consumers to choose between different audio presets or to adjust the dialogue volume.

Universal Delivery

Regardless of the device, the MPEG-H Audio System delivers the best sound experience possible - in the home theatre as well as on smartphones, tablets and Virtual Reality devices.

Improved accessibility

With its unique personalization features, the MPEG-H Audio system offers fully user-adjustable dialogue level and customizable audio description, allowing the media consumption experience to be tailored to individual preferences and needs.

Next-generation open audio standard

The system is based on the MPEG-H 3D Audio standard from MPEG, the international standards group responsible for many globally dominant media standards such as MP3, AAC, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265. The system is now included in the ATSC, DVB, TTA (Korean TV) and ABNT (Brazilian TV) TV standards. It is the audio codec selected for ATSC 3.0 broadcasting in Korea and is the first next-generation audio system used on-the-air since broadcasts began in Korea on May 31, 2017

Ease of use

The MPEG-H Audio System is designed to work with today's streaming and broadcast equipment. Immersive sound can be played back over loudspeakers, headphones, Virtual Reality devices, or MPEG-H equipped soundbars.
