The current paper focuses on spatial audio video / imaging and sound field visualization using ambisonic-processing, combined with MPEG-7 description schemes for multi-modal content description and management. Sound localization can be easily delivered using multi-band ambisonic processing under free-field and single point-source excitation conditions, offering an estimate on the achieved accuracy. Sound source forward propagation models can be applied in case that confident localization accuracy has achieved, to visualize the corresponding sound field. Otherwise, 3D audio/surround sound reproduction simulation can be used instead. In any case, sound level distribution colormap-videos and highlighting images can be extracted. MPEG-7 adapted description schemes are proposed for spatial-audio audiovisual content description and management, facilitating a variety of user-interactive post-processing applications.
