In this study we are exploring how stereoscopic video and ambisonic sound contributes to the perceived quality of experience(QoE), and how these visual and aural features influences presence and motion sickness. Two tests have been conducted in this study, both an initial test and a comprehensive final quantitative test. The initial tests was conducted on 27 participants, and the final quantitative test was conducted on 120 participants. Our study showed no significant differences in the perceived quality or presence. However we found that people sensed significantly more direction in the sound while being presented to monoscopic imagery with ambisonic sound than compared to a stereoscopic imagery with stereo sound. Both of the stereoscopic productions had a higher acceptance score with regards to motion sickness, which is interesting, however this difference was insignificant. This study also reflects our efforts to propose methods to evaluate "Quality of Experience" in 360 video and VR film experiences.
