DIVA virtual audio reality system
MetadataShow full item record
We have created a model of real-time audio virtual reality. This model system includes model-based sound synthesizers, geometric room-acoustics modeling, binaural auralization for headphone or loudspeaker listening, and high-quality animation. This project aims to create a virtual musical event that is highly authentic in both audio and video. To reach this goal, we innovated this system with a real-time image-source algorithm for arbitrarily shaped rooms; shorter HRTF filter approximations for more efficient auralization; and a network-based distributed implementation of the audio-processing software and hardware.
