3-D SOUND FOR VIRTUAL REALITY AND MULTIMEDIA APPLICATIONS

Durand R. Begault One of the key underlying technologies of immersive virtual reality (VR) is 3-D sound. While many recent books have provided overviews of VR, this is the first introduction to 3-D sound theory and applications aimed at the commercial engineer. It will provide the reader with an understanding of the communication chain between source and listener, and of how important issues in psychoacoustics and engineering interact.

Key Features:

* Components of spatial auditory displays. * Psychoacoustics of spatial hearing. * What sounds are appropriate to spatialize. * Applications to human-machine interfaces (including Virtual Reality and multimedia), computer music, and room acoustics.
