Object-based immersive software gives the option to scale the number of loudspeakers based on budget, target SPL, size of venue, envelopment and spatial resolution. Some live-sound systems use dedicated DSPs, while others use immersive software running on high-power personal computers (some also have mixer integration).

With a broad ecosystem of available solutions, it is still early to tell whether one of the branded immersive system solutions will become a truly dominant industry standard or if DIY will remain a viable solution for content designers going forward.
