The overall aim of this research is to develop a high-presence sound system for an emergency drill simulator using a virtual reality display system that runs on a personal computer. Previous studies have reported systems that provide high-presence sound, but these systems needed powerful computers to perform the required processing. With our proposed method, the processing is reduced by using a discontinuous moving sound image given by discrete coordinates. We evaluated the synchronization of

In the experiment, moving sound images with different speeds were compared in order to obtain a threshold for the number of discrete coordinates of the moving sound image to realize high presence. We analyzed the relationship between the evaluations and the speed using a paired comparison method. The results showed that the evaluation of the realism depended on the speed of the sound image.
