Applications of Sound Field Synthesis [chapter]

2012 Analytic Methods of Sound Field Synthesis  
Sound field synthesis has been pursued as a promising approach for spatial audio reproduction for large listening areas. Research is typically performed on small and mid-size systems. An increasing number of systems of cinema size and larger exist, which have shown to exhibit properties that cannot be observed with smaller setups. In particular, practical limitations lead to artifacts whose perceptual saliency increases with array size. Depending on the situation, these artifacts are most
