Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662553718
Release Date: 2017-09-08
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Dieser Band der Reihe Fachwissen Technische Akustik behandelt die Komponenten einer Messapparatur, deren Aufbau, Funktionsweise und Kalibrierung sowie die signaltheoretische Analyse komplexer Schall-Übertragungsfunktionen mit FFT-Analysatoren. Ferner werden typische Messräume und Labor-Apparaturen vorgestellt, so auch in Beispielen zur Absorptionsgrad- und Impedanzmessung, zur Modalanalyse und zu Arraymesstechniken. Akustische Messungen sind wesentlich in der Forschung und bei Untersuchungen in der schalltechnischen Praxis. Fast jede akustische Messapparatur besteht aus einem oder mehreren Mikrofonen oder anderen vibroakustischen Sensoren sowie einem Empfangsteil in Form eines Schallpegelmessers mit Bandpässen oder A-Filtern oder eines Analysesystems zur Bestimmung von Übertragungsfunktionen oder Impulsantworten.

Spatial Audio

Author: Francis Rumsey
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
ISBN: 9781136119897
Release Date: 2012-09-10
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Explores the principles and practical considerations of spatial sound recording and reproduction. Particular emphasis is given to the increasing importance of multichannel surround sound and 3D audio, including binaural approaches, without ignoring conventional stereo. The enhancement of spatial quality is arguably the only remaining hurdle to be overcome in pursuit of high quality sound reproduction. The rise of increasingly sophisticated spatial sound systems presents an enormous challenge to audio engineers, many of whom are confused by the possibilities and unfamiliar with standards, formats, track allocations, monitoring configurations and recording techniques. The author provides a comprehensive study of the current state of the art in spatial audio, concentrating on the most widely used approaches and configurations. Anyone wishing to expand their understanding of these cutting-edge technologies will want to own this book.
