Title: AN AUDIO COMMUNICATION SYSTEM AND METHOD
Abstract:
A system and method for producing virtual binaural audio space are disclosed. In some implementations, the method includes providing staged audio data indicative of an audio data piece and of a relative position of a virtual source from which the audio data piece should be perceived by a designated listener; determining a position (e.g. location and orientation) of a head of user, which designated to be the listener; and transmitting one or more ultrasound fields towards a one or more selected audio center points located in the vicinity of the user's head for producing, via sound from ultrasound effect, left and right audible sound fields carrying the audio data piece to the left and right ears of the user respectively. According to some implementations, at least one parameter of the one or more ultrasound fields are controlled based on the relative position of the virtual source and the position of the user's head, such that a difference between the respective left and right audible sound fields is perceived by the user as an audible sound field propagating to the user from the relative position of the virtual source.
