What is Audio spotlighting..?

• Audio spotlighting is a very recent


technology that creates a focussed beams
of sound similar to light beams coming out
of a flashlight.
• Specific listeners can be targeted with
sound without others nearby hearing it.
Is it possible to confine sound to a
small area..??
If yes, How…??

 By decreasing wavelength of the sound


beams(λ α Beam angle)

 Thus uses ultrasonic energy to creates


extremely narrow beams of light

 By increasing the aperture size of the


speakers
Comparison between Conventional
A
Speakers and Audio Spotlighting
Working Principle
• Frequency modulated signal • Inherent non linearity of air
travel through air , non works as a demodulator and
linearity property of air comes thus demodulated sounds
into action which slightly impringe on our ear drums. We
changes the sound waves. can hear those sounds.
• Due to change in sound
waves new sounds are
formed within the waves.
• New signal corresponds to
the orginal information signal
in the range 20 Hz to 20000
Hz.
Advantages
 Can focus sound only at the specific place you
want.
 Focussed and directed sound waves travels
much faster.
 Highly cost effective and longer life span.
 Requries same power as required for regular
speakers.
 Dispersion can be controlled.
 No lag in reproducing the sound.
Applications
 RETAIL SALES: Provide  MUSEUMS: In museums
directly advertising at the audio spotlight can be used
time of purchase to describe about a
particular object to a
person standing in front of
it.

Let me conclude….
• Even the best loudspeakers are subject to
distortion and their omni direction sound is
annoying to the people in the vicinity who do
not wish to. The audio spot light will force
people to rethink their relationship with sound.
Audio spotlighting really
“PUT SOUND WHERE YOU WANT IT”
and will be a
“REAL BOON FOR FUTURE”
