Abstract: Development of Virtual Environments with Focus on Sound Spatialization
Jens Herder. Development of Virtual Environments with Focus on Sound Spatialization, MMC Video on Demand System, The University of Aizu Multimedia Center, July, 2000.
The responsibility of a virtual environment is to
present objects, but a practical system has
only limited resources, including spatialization
channels (mixels). A resource manager, part of the
Sound Spatialization Framework, controls sound
resources and optimizes fidelity (presence) under
given conditions, using a priority scheme based on
Application programmers and VR scene
designers are freed from the burden of assigning
mixels and predicting sound source locations.
The Sound Spatialization Framework is demonstrated using
the Chatspace, an networked application which allows people
to meet in Cyberspace and communicate through spatial audio.
