Up-Mixing and Localisation - Localisation Performance of Up-Mixed Consumer Multichannel Formats

Document Thumbnail

A number of listening tests were carried out to assess localisation of sound in derived surround sound fields. Two up-mixed consumer multichannel formats that use matrix decoding of 3/2 multichannel surround channels to increase the surround channel array (Dolby Pro Logic IIx and DTS Neo:6) were compared to original 3/2 multichannel material to determine the degree of spatial performance improvement. Noise bursts were panned to 11 different locations, thirteen subjects participated in the tests and results were analysed to assess any improvement in localisation in each of the assessed surround systems.
