Immersive Spatial Audio for Telepresence Applications: System design and implementation
Immersive environments for teleconferencing, collaborative shared spaces
and entertainment are set to become key elements of future communications
systems. Spatial audio is an essential part of this emerging immersive
environment technology. This paper describes a number of immersive
environments developed at BT Laboratories covering the design and
implementation of spatial audio for a range of systems from a single person
SmartSpace chair using transaural processing to a multi-user VisionDome
using a combination of ambisonics and non-linear panning.
It was necessary to take existing spatial audio techniques and adapt them
to suit our specific needs.
