An HRTF Database for Virtual Loudspeaker Rendering

Document Thumbnail

This paper presents a database of Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTFs), collected from 20 subjects for use in virtual loudspeaker reproduction systems. The paper documents the measurement procedure and format of the HRTFs. The database accommodates Ambisonic rendering up to 5th Order and includes loudspeaker configurations derived from platonic, convex polyhedra and other spherical distributions. The datasets are also presented with matching acoustic responses to assist externalization and decode matrices for higher order Ambisonic rendering.
