Effectiveness of Height Information for Reproducing the Presence and Reality in Multichannel Audio System

A 22.2 multichannel sound system was developed that adapts to an ultrahigh-definition video system with 4000 scanning lines. The sound system consisted of loudspeakers with three layers: an upper layer with nine channels, a middle layer with ten channels, and a lower layer with three channels and two channels for low frequency effects. This system has new features of three-dimensional sound reproduction. Subjective evaluation by the semantic differential (SD) method are presented to assess the importance of height information for a sound system using several stimuli in a 22.2 multichannel audio system with Super Hi-Vision and a high-definition television. Furthermore, the actual effectiveness of height information and some practical suggestions for aesthetic mixing of three-dimensional audio is also presented.
