Kinect Application for a Wave Field Synthesis-Based Reproduction System
Wave field synthesis is a reproduction technique capable to reproduce realistic acoustic image taking advantage of a large number of loudspeakers. In particular, it is possible to reproduce moving sound sources, achieving good performance in terms of sound quality and accuracy. In this context, an efficient application of a wave field synthesis reproduction system is proposed, introducing a Kinect control on the transmitting room, capable to accurately track the source movement and thus preserving the spatial representation of the acoustic scene. The proposed architecture is implemented using a real time framework considering a network connection between the receiving and transmitting room: several tests have been performed to evaluate the realism of the achieved performance.
