The Impact of the White Noise Gain (WNG) of a Virtual Artificial Head on the Appraisal of Binaural Sound Reproduction

Eugen Rasumow, Matthias Blau, Martin Hansen, Simon Doclo, Steven Van De Par, Volker Mellert & Dirk Püschel
As an individualized alternative to traditional artificial heads, individual head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) can be synthesized with a microphone array and digital filtering. This strategy is referred to as "virtual artificial head" (VAH). The VAH filter coefficients are calculated by incorporating regularization to account for small errors in the characteristics and/or the position of the microphones. A common way to increase robustness is to impose a socalled white noise gain (WNG) constraint. The higher the...
