Title: INFORMATION PROCESSING DEVICE, INFORMATION PROCESSING METHOD, AND PROGRAM
Abstract:
Provided are a device and method which make it possible to perform an image-tracking-type audio control for causing an audio source direction to track the movement of a display image on a display unit, or to perform an image-non-tracking-type audio control, by individual audio element unit. The present invention selectively displays different-direction images on a display unit, and executes control of output audio in tandem with image display. A data processing unit executes the image-tracking-type audio control, which moves the direction of an audio source along with the movement of a display image on a display unit, and executes the image-non-tracking-type audio control, which does not move the audio source direction according to the movement of the image, by individually controllable audio element units. The data processing unit obtains audio control information from an MP4 file or from an MPD file, and according to the obtained audio control information, executes the image-tracking-type audio control or the image-non-tracking-type audio control by audio element unit.
