Title
(EN) SYSTEM, METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CO-LOCATING VISUAL IMAGES AND ASSOCIATED SOUND
(FR) SYSTÈME, PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR CO-LOCALISER DES IMAGES VISUELLES ET UN SON ASSOCIÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A system for co-locating visual images and associated sounds includes: (a) a screen for displaying the visual images at areas of its display surface, apparent locations of the visual images being selected from: corresponding zones defined within an immersive environment surrounding the screen, and the areas; and (b) sound exciters rendering an effect of the associated sounds originating from the apparent locations. The sound exciters may form sound walls distal from the screen and receive a spatially distributed audio signal representing three-dimensional coordinates of the corresponding zones, the effect being rendered by at least one of audio volume, reverberation, echo, and spectral filtering. The spatially distributed audio signal may represent two-dimensional coordinates identifying the areas, the sound exciters vibrating the display surface so the associated sounds emit from the areas, the screen being a video screen or a projection screen. A processor may generate the spatially distributed audio signal.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système de co-localisation d'images visuelles et de sons associés qui comprend : (a) un écran pour afficher les images visuelles au niveau de régions de sa surface d'affichage, des emplacements apparents des images visuelles étant sélectionnés parmi : des zones correspondantes définies dans un environnement immersif entourant l'écran, et les regions; et (b) des excitateurs sonores restituant un effet des sons associés provenant des emplacements apparents. Les excitateurs sonores peuvent former des parois sonores distales par rapport à l'écran et recevoir un signal audio distribué spatialement représentant des coordonnées tridimensionnelles des zones correspondantes, l'effet étant rendu par l'un au moins d'un volume audio, de la réverbération, de l'écho et du filtrage spectral. Le signal audio distribué spatialement peut représenter des coordonnées bidimensionnelles identifiant les régions, les excitateurs sonores faisant vibrer la surface d'affichage de sorte que les sons associés soient émis à partir des régions, l'écran étant un écran vidéo ou un écran de projection. Un processeur peut générer le signal audio distribué spatialement.
