Paper Abstract

The use of Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTFs) in audio processing is a popular method of obtaining spatialized sound. HRTFs describe disturbances caused in the sound wave by the human body, especially by head and the ear pinnae. Since these shapes are unique, HRTFs differ greatly from person to person. For this reason measurement of personalized HRTFs is justified. Measured HRTFs also need further processing to be utilized in a system producing spatialized sound. This paper describes a system designed for efficient collecting of Head Related Transfer Functions as well as the measurement, interpolation and verification procedures.
