We all love watching movies. We enjoy the sights and sounds of the movies, lost in the story and characters on the big screen. Movies are an escape from reality for us, and we can get lost in the universe of the movie. But what if we could make the experience even more immersive? What if we could make it feel like the sound is coming from the characters in the movie?
Philip Scott Lyren, a technology company, is introducing a new technology to do just that. They recently filed a patent application (patent number US20230239649A1) which introduces a method to let you hear sound from the movie as if it's coming from the characters in the movie. The patent introduces a special device which is worn to make the sound match the listener's ears, creating an immersive and realistic experience.
The patent, titled 'Method for providing binaural sound to a listener', describes a method to convolve sound based on the position of the listener with respect to an image. It also shows a movie theater where the sound is convolved for an individual according to their location in the theater. The patent further shows a method to provide sound to a listener based on a selected character, object, or a location in a visual entertainment medium. Finally, it describes a method to take an action when a selected character or location is or is not present in a visual entertainment medium.
With this technology, Philip Scott Lyren has a chance to revolutionize the way we experience movies. Imagine watching a movie and feeling like you are in the room with the characters. The sound of their voices, the sound of the environment, will feel like it is right around you. This will make the movie experience even more immersive and exciting.
The technology also has a lot of potential for other applications. It could be used in virtual reality (VR) games, where the user can feel like they are in the world of the game. It could also be used in augmented reality (AR) applications, where the user can experience a more realistic environment. The technology could even be used in music, for people to experience the sound of the music in a more immersive way.
The patent is ambitious and it is not certain whether the technology will come to the market or not. But if it does, it could be a game-changer for the movie industry. It could be a revolutionary way to experience movies and other visual entertainment media. It could lead to an entirely new way of consuming entertainment, and it could be the start of a new era of entertainment.
Philip Scott Lyren's patent is bold and ambitious, and it will be exciting to see if the technology comes to the market. There is no denying the potential of this technology and how it could revolutionize the way we experience movies and other visual entertainment media. The possibilities are endless, and we can only wait and see what the future holds.
