Article: Florida Inventor Develops Sound Field Production System

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 25 -- Randall B. Metcalf of Cantonment, Fla., has developed a sound system and a method for modeling a sound field which is generated by a sound source and creating a sound event which is based on the modeled sound field.

According to the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office: "The system and method captures a sound field over an enclosing surface, models the sound field and enables reproduction of the modeled sound field. Explosion type acoustical radiation may be used. Further, the reproduced sound field may be modeled and compared to the original sound field model."

The inventor was issued U.S. Patent No. 7,138,576 on Nov. 21.
