Research output: Patent


The invention provides a method for generating output filters to a plurality of loudspeakers at respective positions for playback of a plurality of different input signals in respective spatially different sound zones by means of a processor system. The method comprising computing spatio-temporal correlation matrices in response to spatial information, e.g. measured transfer functions, and in response to desired sound pressures in the plurality of sound zones. Joint eigenvalue decomposition of the spatial correlation matrices are then computed, or at least an approximation thereof, to arrive at eigenvectors accordingly. Next, variable span filters a reformed from a linear combination of the eigenvectors in response to a desired trade-off between acoustic contrast and acoustic errors in the sound zones. Finally, output filter for each of the plurality of loudspeakers,for each of the plurality of input signals, in accordance with the variable span filters.The method is applicable also for optimization in one zone, e.g. for room equalization.
