Upon his first contact with immersive audio, our founder André Zabeu realized the kind of impact this new technology would have in the future of the arts and media, and that’s when he conceived what is today ANZ Immersive Audio.
Our first studio, in São Paulo, was projected and built to meet the demands of immersive audio and the countless possibilities it creates, with versatile spaces and high-end equipment.
In the same level of excellence, we have a team with distinct areas of expertise.
