Efficient 3D sound field reproduction

Shin, Mincheol, Fazi, F.M., Seo, Jeongil and Nelson, Philip A. (2011) Efficient 3D sound field reproduction At 130th Convention of the Audio Engineering Society, United Kingdom. 13 - 16 May 2011. 10 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


A method is presented for efficient sound field reproduction with a loudspeaker array constituted by multiple sound sources which are three-dimensionally distributed. The physical reproduction of several target sound fields is investigated when the target sound fields are surrounded by multiple sound sources. A cost function to be minimized has been developed to obtain the optimal solution with reasonable energy distribution and sufficient sweet area when the distribution of loudspeakers is non-uniform. The performance of the proposed method is verified by the results of computer simulations and subjective tests in the cases of NHK 22.2 and ETRI 10.2 channel configurations.
