About AURO-3D

We make many recordings in AURO-3D, the immersive audio format invented by our founder and CEO Wilfried Van Baelen in 2005. It was launched in 2010 at the AES spatial Conference in Tokyo as an end-to-end solution for all audio markets. 

The Galaxy Hall was an important contributor to the research and development of this ground-breaking audio format.
