Multi-language video playback using beam forming

submitted by: apryl
This is a multi-language audio demo used at the KAUST SIGGRAPH booth. For the full effect of the audio demonstration, this video was be available for preview in the KAUST booth at SIGGRAPH 2011. The demonstration used beam-forming to control the electroacoustic architecture of dialog in both english and arabic languages spatially in a designated area. Arabic listeners could stand a few feet away from english listeners and watch the same visuals comfortably without hearing the other...
