Automatic Speaker Delay Adjustment System Using Wireless Audio Capability of ZigBee Networks
IEEE 802.15.4 (ZigBee) standard is a low data rate, low power consumption, low cost, flexible network system that uses wireless networking protocol for automation and remote control applications. This paper applied these characteristics on the wireless speaker delay compensation system in a large venue (over 500-seat hall). Traditionally delay adjustment has been manually done by sound engineers, but our suggested system will be able to analyze delayed-sound of front speaker to rear speaker automatically and apply appropriate delay time to rear speakers. This paper investigates the feasibility of adjusting the wireless speaker delay over the above-mentioned ZigBee network. We present an implementation of a ZigBee audio transmision and LBS (Location-Based Service) application that allows to calculation a speaker delay time.
