IOSONO –Wave Field Synthesizer
The TiME Lab has at its disposal a140 channel planar wave field synthesizing system (WFS) to render the acoustic part of any content with great authenticity. The WFS is an object-based multiple channel sound reproduction system. Such audio reproductions map sounds to their sources. With limitations, this even extends to the acoustic space between the speakers and listeners. Wave field synthesizers also reproduce the acoustic character of environments such as churches or concert halls. This almost transports listeners into these environments. Different from discrete playback formats (stereo, 5.1, 7.1 etc.), the WFS auditory sensation area is almost as large as the area enclosed between the speakers. There are no ‘sweet spots‘.
