Normalization Schemes in Ambisonic: Does it Matter?

Document Thumbnail

In the context of Ambisonic processing, various normalizations of the spherical harmonic functions have been proposed in the literature and there is yet no consensus in the community about which one should be preferred (if any). This is a frequent source of confusion for the end users and this may lead to compatibility issues between rendering engines. This paper reviews the different conventions in use, presents an extension of the FuMa scheme to higher orders, and discusses possible pitfalls in the decoding stage.
