In order to evaluate acoustic properties of reproduced sound fields, sound intensities were measured and analyzed in various types of multichannel studios by using a Virtual Source Visualizer (VSV hereafter). First, two different methods to reproduce sound fields are examined; 24ch amplitude-based phantom sound sources and Kirchhoff-Helmholtz-integral-based Boundary Surface Control principle. Secondly, sound fields created by four different types of 3D panners are examined; Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, Auro-3D and 22.2ch. Through these measurements, it was demonstrated that the VSV analyzes acoustic features of reproduced fields well, and interchangeabilities and differences of acoustic properties among different reproduced fields can be understood clearly. The session discusses accuracy and features of various types of reproduced sound fields which we measured and analyzed by the VSV.
