The new3D Immersive Extension builds on the industry-leading Halo 9.1 Extension, adding further options beyond the existing Dolby Atmos® bed track capability.

This makes it possible to upmix, re-purpose or convert channel-based audio for an Ambisonic workflow. 

In addition, the Halo 3D Immersive Extension makes Halo the first upmixer to fully support Avid’s newly announced Pro Tools® version 12.8, now with native 7.1.2 stems for Dolby Atmos mixing.
