Meeting Report: Nov 2011 – Vector Wave-Front Description and Demo

The November 21st meeting was held at Swinburne Univ of Technology and featured Graeme Huon providing us with an update and demonstration of his Vector Wave-Front scheme for more realistic localization of reproduced sounds within a sonic space.

November Meeting

Graeme Huon to demonstrate his Vector Wavefront scheme.
Mon November 21st, 7:30pm at Swinburne Uni
(Engineering Building Room EN313)

The topic of the next meeting of the Melbourne Section of the AES will be:

 Capture, editing, decoding and rendering for future audio imaging technologies
 – an update and demonstration.
by Graeme Huon.

Graeme’s Vector Wavefront audio format is a new technology that moves beyond surround sound to eliminate the sweet-spot, require less discrete channels, yet remain compatible with the present formats, and allow more flexible placement of loudspeakers.
This presentation will build on Graeme’s presentation to us in June 2010, outlining progress since that date and include audio demonstrations of the scheme’s capabilities.
