Sample text

This set-up offers the greatest flexibility of sound placement in the surround field. 7 The center speaker delivers a “hard” center, which gives good localization across the listening area. The surround-sound field should sound natural and be used to convey a dimensional perspective and enhance the sense of depth and space. This is accomplished by using atmosphere sounds, music and crowd sounds. The surround audio mix begins as a stereo sound image of the event, including the venue atmosphere. Specific sound effects will be assigned to the front stereo speakers depending on the visual orientation and movement across the screen.

The Olympics host broadcaster produces surround-sound mix in a native five-channel format, front left and right, left surround and right surround and LFE, plus a Dolby Pro Logic II matrix output. Additionally, they produce a stereo and mono program mix and up to three separate stereo mixes such as a crowd mix without effects, effects mix without crowd, stereo handheld cameras, and several direct outputs as at each venue. HDTV venues were generally true HD video output, but included some 16 by 9 and up-converted video sources.

In a surround-sound mix, it is customary to use the center channel for the voice or announcer, front speakers for event sound, and atmosphere sounds to be added to the front channels and rear channels separately. As previously stated, the LFE should be used to enhance the low-frequency sounds such as explosions, punches in boxing, or even the kick of a ball in football. The LFE gives the additional punch needed sometimes to make sure the low frequencies are properly reproduced. In a surround-sound mix there are no hard rules about the placement of music.
