Abstract

In future communications with rich high-level kansei information, such as presence, verisimilitude, realism and naturalness, the role of sound is extremely important to enhance the quality and versatility of communications because sound itself can provide rich semantic and emotional information. Moreover, sound (auditory information) has good synergy effects with pictures (visual information). In this paper, we introduce our recent research results toward capturing and synthesizing comprehensive 3D sound space information as well as a high-definition 3D audio-visual display realizing strict audio-visual synchronization. We believe that these systems are useful to advance universal communications, which require particularly high-quality and versatile communications technologies for all.
