A New Method of Multichannel Surround Sound Coding Utilizing Head Dynamic Cue
Considering the disadvantages of conventional matrix surround systems, a new method of multichannel surround sound coding is proposed. At the encoder, multichannel signals are converted into two pairs of virtual stereo signals, which are modulated to make corresponding changes by simulating dynamic cue of the head's slight rotation. Then the left and right channels of the virtual stereos are added respectively into two-channel stereo for transmission. At the decoder, the front and back stereos are separated by extracting the dynamic cue and then redistributed to the multichannel system. This new method can realize better surround sound reproduction without affecting sound effects of the downmixed stereo.
