A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11930348B2) discloses a method implemented by a computer system to generate audio files based on audio signals from various objects at a venue. The method involves creating metadata with spatial features for the objects and transmitting the audio files and metadata to an electronic device to provide a virtual experience of being at the venue. The metadata includes details like object positions, group information, and venue environment. The system utilizes microphones attached to objects to capture audio signals and a graphic interface to set spatial features, enabling users to render audio files based on desired information through a user interface.

Furthermore, the patent describes a computer system that includes a production tool for generating audio files and metadata, along with a server for transmitting this data to another electronic device for rendering the audio based on spatial features. The system allows for the extraction of desired information from metadata to enhance the virtual experience, including switching between different information points to minimize sound quality distortion. The server operates using specific communication protocols to ensure seamless transmission of audio files and metadata, providing users with an immersive audio experience based on the spatial features of the venue and objects involved.
