Apple’s New Patent to Improve Sound Quality. A new patent from Apple aims to improve the sound quality of MacBook users through its virtual acoustic system. With the new system, the users’ experience of being there will be enriched.
Apple is one of the leaders in obtaining patents, 2020 is entering the new patent rights. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted Apple 60 new patents, one of which is related to the audio experience of MacBook users.
The new patent that will improve the sound quality of Apple laptops aims to strengthen the virtual acoustic system. The virtual acoustic system creates the illusion that the sound is not directly from the speaker, but from the interior or exterior. Audio signal processing for virtual acoustics can enhance the experience of cinema, sports or video games and create a sense of ‘being there’.
The process divides audio signal processing into at least three separate paths. This means that it differs from the process allocated to the right and left speakers. With the system, each of the audio signals scattered into three separate signals will have different effects. These three audio signal chains will eventually be combined into two separate signals, the right and the left. With the new process, the noise will be eliminated in a manner similar to the operating principle of the sound suppressors.
However, some patent-related news points out that enriched or virtual reality is not mentioned anywhere in the pantle. Patents accompanying drawings do not show users wearing virtual reality or augmented reality headers. The new patent is thought to be simply a way of digital processing to enhance the acoustic experience through a virtual and digitally generated surround sound system. MacBook games, Apple TV + and sports content, users are likely to encounter a new process is spoken.
Another patent issued by LetsGoDigital shows a new Apple device. Although the drawings in the patent show a screen consisting entirely of touch surfaces, borders appear on the sides of the screen. The renderings obtained from the drawing include the power on / off key and volume control keys. However, there is no front camera.
