Audio Air Hockey: A Pilot Study in Using Audio-Based Games for the Measurement of Loudspeaker Placement Preferences for Smart Tables

Modern game hardware technology (e.g. mobile, touchpad and smart table) requires new considerations for mixing and surround sound due to changing viewer angles. Can audio-based games provide us with a useful subjective measure of player preference of different loudspeaker placements? To determine an answer to this question, our method was to measure subjective responses to two different quadraphonic loudspeaker placements with a smart table using a custom built audio-based game. Results showed that the majority of players had a preference for speaker placement, and that the placement was perceived to impact their gameplay. Counter to our hypothesis, results showed that players did not prefer the standard quadraphonic set-up.
