The web stands as a ubiquitous, pervasive platform with unmatched access for digital entertainment. As HTML5, WebGL and VR fills the gaps between the flat, 2-dimensional experiences of old to bring flowing animations and immersive graphics, web-based audio has lagged behind until now.

Todd will also explain how the format brings efficiencies to Web developers, enabling consistent high quality multi-channel audio playback across devices.
