Spatial Audio

Comments Off on Spatial Audio


Sound is a important part of everyday life, being our primary means of personal communication. Humans make use of their two ears to analyze the spatial dimension of sound, being able to localize sound sources in space and gathering important information about the environment. Capturing and synthesizing the spatial features of sound is not an easy task and usually requires the use of multiple microphones and loudspeakers. In this context, the field of spatial audio has evolved from sterephonic recording and reproduction to complex sound field synthesis techniques, such as Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) or Higher Order Ambisonics (HOA). Spatial audio is therefore a wide research topic covering multiple aspects related to the spatial dimension of sound.
