NTT DoCoMo New Develops Mobile Spatial Audio Transmission Technology

Ainsley Jones

Last week, Japan's NTT DoCoMo made news with the announcement it will bring the Android-powered HTC Magic to the island nation. Today, the carrier is making hay with its newly developed mobile spatial audio transmission technology.


The technology assigns a virtual position for various sound sources for mobile phone users wearing headphones. According to cellular-news, DoCoMo, which is continuing to develop the technology, envisions commercializing the technology for use in mobile teleconferencing, educational purposes and gaming.


DoCoMo's mobile spatial audio transmission technology works by integrating audio encoding/decoding and spatial audio synthesis. Unwired View reports the company plans to demonstrate the technology later this week during Wireless Technology Park 2009 at PacificoYokohoma.
