Application: Interaural time difference crossfader for binaural audio rendering (Patent ID: US20240089691A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes systems and methods for presenting audio signals to a user wearing a head-mounted device. The method involves processing input audio signals to generate left and right output audio signals presented to the user's ears, including applying delay processes, adjusting gains, and utilizing head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) based on source location. The system includes speakers associated with the wearable head device and processors to perform the method, which also involves determining user orientation and adjusting audio signals accordingly.

The method outlined in the patent involves receiving input audio signals associated with directions from virtual objects to the user in a virtual environment, applying interaural time delays (ITDs) based on these directions, and presenting the output audio signals to the user via speakers. Various aspects such as filtering, gain adjustment, and HRTF application are included in the method to enhance the audio experience for the user. Additionally, the system incorporates sensors to determine user orientation and adjust ITDs accordingly, ensuring an immersive and dynamic audio presentation based on the user's movements and interactions within the virtual environment.
