Application: Spatial audio for interactive audio environments (Patent ID: US20230413007A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes systems and methods for presenting an output audio signal to a listener in a virtual environment. The method involves determining intermediate audio signals for sound sources in the virtual environment, including reflections of the input audio signal based on the location of the sound source and the acoustic properties of the virtual environment. These intermediate audio signals are associated with different channels and buses, and the output audio signal is presented to the listener by decoding these signals. The system includes speakers, processors, and sensors to determine the acoustic properties of the virtual environment.

The method and system outlined in the patent involve encoding and decoding audio signals based on the location of sound sources and the acoustic properties of the virtual environment to create a realistic audio experience for the listener. Sensors such as microphones and cameras are used to determine these properties, and the output audio signal is presented to the listener through speakers associated with a wearable head device. Additionally, the patent covers the retrieval of acoustic properties from a database, the use of ambisonics decoders, and the presentation of a view of the virtual environment to the listener simultaneously with the audio output.
