As with such successful past innovative audio format rollouts as stereo and Surround Sound, the rapid proliferation of Immersive Sound theatrical presentations has motivated an increasing number of global recording studio upgrades. An estimated 90% of today's feature films are produced with Immersive Sound. And, the format is ubiquitous with videogame producers/players.
