Spatio-temporal structure of sound fields synthesized by HOA & WFS

The following two videos show the synthesis of a broadband plane wave using near-field compensated higher-order Ambisonics (NFC-HOA) and Wave Field Synthesis (WFS). A circular system with a diameter of 3 meters consisting of 56 loudspeakers was simulated numerically. The … Continue reading
