[0001]
The present invention relates to an audio reproduction system for reproducing multi-channel
audio data.
[0002]
An audio reproduction system including a DVD player that is a source device compliant with the
HDMI standard, an AV amplifier that is a repeater device, and a projector or display device that is
a sink device is used, and HDMI data output from the source device is used. By including video
data and audio data, one HDMI cable can transmit both video data and audio data to the repeater
device.

The AV amplifier converts the HDMI data received from the DVD player into the original video
data and audio data, amplifies the audio data and outputs it to a speaker, converts the video data
into HDMI data again, and transmits it to the projector. The projector converts the received
HDMI data into the original video data and projects it on the screen.
[0003]
The audio data included in the HDMI data transmitted from the DVD player to the AV amplifier is
the multichannel audio data encoded. For example, as shown in FIG. 17, multi-channel audio data
includes left audio data L, right audio data R, central audio data C, low-pass audio data SW,
surround left audio data SL, surround right audio data SR, and surround back The 7.1ch multichannel audio data including the left audio data SBL and the surround back right audio data SBR
is adopted.
[0004]
However, in order to reproduce audio data of each channel of these multi-channel audio data, it
is necessary to connect eight speakers to an AV amplifier via a speaker cable. Therefore, the user
needs to prepare eight speakers, which is costly. Also, in general, the AV amplifier is disposed in
front of the user (viewing position), so in order to connect the AV amplifier with the surround
back left speaker SSBL and the surround back right speaker SSBR, the inside of the room is
viewed from the front It is necessary to route the speaker cable toward the rear, which is
cumbersome and does not look good.
[0005]
The following techniques have been proposed to solve this problem. The AV amplifier transmits
HDMI data including the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround back right audio
data to the projector. The projector reproduces the surround back left audio data SBL included in
the received HDMI data from the projector left speaker, and reproduces the surround back right
audio data SBR from the projector right speaker. Thereby, the surround back left audio data SBL
and the surround back right audio data SBR can be reproduced without arranging the surround
back left speaker SSBL and the surround back right speaker SSBR.

[0006]
Here, the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround back right audio data SBR may
include high frequency components, and the high frequency components have a feature that the
directivity is narrow. Therefore, the direction of the diaphragm of the speaker provided in the
projector (the direction of the sound wave) is very important, and the speaker needs to be
directed to the viewing position (the user's ear). However, in the above technology, no
consideration is given to the orientation of the speaker.

reproducing surround right audio data SBR from the projector right speaker SRP is described.
explain.
As shown in FIG. 8, the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 monitors whether HDMI
data is input from the DVD player 10, that is, whether the HDMI reception unit 21 receives HDMI
data. (S11). When the HDMI data is input (YES in S11), the system control unit 23 determines
whether the projector 30 is connected to the AV amplifier 20 (S12). For example, when the
projector 30 is connected via the HDMI cable, since the hot plug output from the projector 30 is
at the high level, the connection can be determined by determining the level of the hot plug.
Here, since the projector 30 is connected (YES in S12), the process proceeds to S13. The
connection confirmation includes the meaning of the confirmation as to whether the power of
the projector 30 is in the on state.
[0051]
Next, the system control unit 23 determines whether the projector 30 has an audio reproduction
function, that is, whether the projector 30 has an audio processing unit 39, a projector left
speaker SLP, and a projector right speaker SRP. (S13). For example, when the projector 30 is
connected via the HDMI cable, the EDID including the device information can be acquired from
the projector 30, so that the audio reproduction function can be performed by analyzing the
device information included in the acquired EDID. It can be determined whether or not it has.
Here, since the voice reproduction function is provided (YES in S13), the process proceeds to
S14.
[0052]
Next, since the system control unit 23 prepares to reproduce the surround back left audio data
SBL and the surround back right audio data SBR with the speakers of the projector 30, the
system control unit 33 of the projector 30 performs volume control via the CEC line. The setting
command is transmitted (S14). The volume setting command includes a volume value (not a
relative value but an absolute value, for example, in dB units) set in the current volume

adjustment unit 43 of the AV amplifier 20.
[0053]
As shown in FIG. 9, the system control unit 33 of the projector 30 monitors whether a volume
setting command has been received from the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 via
the CEC line (S31). When the volume setting command is received (YES in S31), the system
control unit 33 reads the volume value included in the volume setting command, and sets the
volume value of the volume adjustment unit 52 as the volume value (S32). Subsequently, the
system control unit 33 transmits a volume setting completion notification to the system control
unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 via the CEC line (S33). Thereafter, the projector 30 stands by until
receiving HDMI data from the AV amplifier 20.
[0054]
Referring back to FIG. 8, the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 monitors whether the
volume setting completion notification has been received from the system control unit 33 of the
projector 30 via the CEC line (S15). When the volume setting completion notification is received
(YES in S15), the system control unit 23 controls the audio processing unit 26 and the HDMI
transmission unit 22 to execute multi-channel audio data decoding and transmission of the HDMI
data to the projector 30. To do (S16).
[0055]
Specifically, the audio processing unit 26 (DSP 41) decodes audio data of each channel. The DSP
41 supplies the decoded surround back left audio data SBL and the surround back right audio
data SBR to the converter 45. The conversion unit 45 converts the surround back left audio data
SBL and the surround back right audio data SBR into SPDIF (PCM) data, and supplies the SPDIF
(PCM) data to the HDMI transmission unit 22. The HDMI transmitting unit 22 generates HDMI
data from the video data, the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround back right
audio data SBR, and transmits the HDMI data to the HDMI receiving unit 31 of the projector 30.
[0056]
10-05-2019

As shown in FIG. 9, when receiving HDMI data, the HDMI receiving unit 31 of the projector 30
generates the original video data and the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround
back right audio data SBR, and projects the video data. The audio data is supplied to the section
32, and the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround back right audio data SBR are
supplied to the audio processing section 39 (S34). The system control unit 33 controls the
volume adjustment unit 52 and the amplification processing unit 53 to release the mute state
(S35). In the audio processing unit 39, the DAC 51 performs digital-to-analog conversion of audio
data, the volume adjustment unit 52 adjusts the volume value of the analog audio signal, and the
amplification processing unit 53 amplifies the analog audio signal and outputs it to the speaker.
As a result, the surround back left audio data SBL is reproduced from the projector left speaker
SLP, and the surround back right audio data SBR is reproduced from the projector right speaker
SRP (S36).
[0057]
Referring back to FIG. 8, the DSP 41 supplies the decoded left audio data L, right audio data R,
central audio data C, low-pass audio data SW, surround left audio data SL, and surround right
audio data SR to the DAC 42. The DAC 42 performs digital-analog conversion on audio data, the
volume adjustment unit 52 adjusts the volume value of the analog audio signal, and the
amplification processing unit 53 amplifies the analog audio signal and outputs it to a speaker. As
a result, the left audio data L is reproduced from the left speaker SL, the right audio data R is
reproduced from the right speaker SR, the central audio data C is reproduced from the central
speaker SC, and the low frequency audio data SW from the low frequency speaker SSW. The
surround left audio data SL is reproduced from the surround left speaker SSL, and the surround
right audio data SR is reproduced from the surround right speaker SSR (S17).
[0058]
As described above, the surround back left speaker and the surround back right speaker are
separately disposed by reproducing the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround back
right audio data SBR using the speakers provided in the projector 30. There is no need. When
multichannel audio data includes only 1 channel backward audio data instead of surround
backward left audio data SBL and surround backward right audio data SBR, a speaker provided
with projector 30 for the backward audio data is used. You can use and play. In this case, the
projector 30 may be provided with at least one speaker.

[0059]
If it is determined in S12 that the projector 30 is not connected to the AV amplifier 20 (NO in
S12), or if it is determined in S13 that the projector 30 does not have an audio reproduction
function (S13) And the process proceeds to S18, where the normal reproduction process is
performed. In this case, the DSP 41 supplies the surround back left audio data SBL and the
surround back right audio data SBR to the DAC 42 instead of the converter 45. The DAC 42
performs digital-analog conversion on the surround back left audio data SBL and the surround
back right audio data SBR, the volume adjustment unit 52 adjusts the volume value of the analog
audio signal, and the amplification processing unit 53 amplifies the analog audio signal. Output
to the speaker. As a result, if the surround back left speaker and the surround back right speaker
are connected to the AV amplifier 20, the surround back left audio data SBL is reproduced from
the surround back left speaker and the surround back right audio data from the surround back
right speaker It is also possible to regenerate the SBR. When the surround back left speaker and
the surround back right speaker are not arranged, the surround back left audio data SBL and the
surround back right audio data SBR are added to the audio signals of the other channels, and It is
also possible to play from speakers.
[0060]
Next, with reference to FIGS. 10 and 11, processing for rotating the projector left speaker SLP
and the projector right speaker SRP based on the setting contents of the speaker setting table
will be described. As shown in FIG. 10, the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20
determines whether the distance SSBL Distance from the viewing position to the surround back
left speaker SSBL (surround back right speaker SSBR) is set in the speaker setting table. It judges
(S61). If it is not set (NO in S61), the process ends. Here, as shown in FIG. 5, SSBL Distance is set
to 4.0 m (YES in S61). Next, the system control unit 23 refers to the speaker setting table, and
determines whether information on whether to output HDMI data to the projector 30 is set to
YES (S62). If "NO" is set (NO in S62), the process ends. Here, it is set to "YES" (YES in S62).
Subsequently, the system control unit 23 determines in advance whether the setting is made by
user operation so as to communicate with the system control unit 33 of the projector 30 via the
CEC line (S63). If it is set not to communicate via the CEC line (NO in S63), the process ends.
Here, communication is set via the CEC line (YES in S63).
[0061]

The system control unit 23 refers to the speaker setting table, and based on the distance SSBL
Distance from the viewing position to the surround back left speaker SSBL and the height SSBL
Height of the surround back left speaker SSBL, the projector left speaker SLP and the projector
right The rotation angle θ of the speaker SRP is calculated. Specifically, as shown in FIG. 6, the
rotation angle θ is calculated by sinθ = high SSBL Height of surround back left speaker SSBL /
distance SSBL Distance from viewing position to surround back left speaker SSBL. In the case of
FIGS. 5 and 6, sin θ = 1/4.
[0062]
Subsequently, the system control unit 23 transmits information of the calculated rotation angle
θ to the system control unit 33 of the projector 30 via the CEC line (S65). Thereafter, the
process waits until a notification is received from the system control unit 33 of the projector 30.
[0063]
As shown in FIG. 11, the system control unit 33 of the projector 30 monitors the reception of the
information θ of the rotation angle from the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 via
the CEC line (S71). If received (YES in S71), the system control unit 33 determines whether the
received rotation angle θ is within the range of the maximum rotation angle of the projector left
speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP ((S71). S72). The maximum rotatable angle is
preset in the memory 34.
[0064]
If the received rotation angle θ is within the maximum rotation angle of the projector left
speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP (YES in S72), the system control unit 33 causes
the speaker rotation control unit 37 to rotate. It is instructed to rotate the projector left speaker
SLP and the projector right speaker SRP by the movement angle θ. Incidentally, referring to FIG.
6, the directions of the projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP (the sound
wave emitting direction, the direction of the diaphragm) are initially forward and parallel to the
floor surface (broken line arrow A). It shall be facing. In response to the instruction from the
system control unit 33, the speaker rotation control unit 37 rotates the projector left speaker SLP
and the projector right speaker SRP by the angle θ in the counterclockwise direction (downward
10-05-2019
19
direction) in FIG. 6 (S73). As a result, the direction of the projector left speaker SLP and the
projector right speaker SRP is a dashed arrow B in FIG. 6, and is directed to the viewing position
(user's ear).
[0065]
Subsequently, the system control unit 33 transmits a normal notification to the effect that the
projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP can be normally rotated to the
system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 via the CEC line. (S74).
[0066]
On the other hand, if the received rotation angle θ is not within the maximum rotation angle of
the projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP in S72 (NO in S72), the system
control unit 33 instructs the speaker rotation control unit 37. On the other hand, no instruction
is given to rotate the projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP by the
rotation angle θ.
As a result, the directions of the projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP
remain unchanged as the dashed arrow A. After that, the system control unit 33 transmits an
abnormality notification that the projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP
can not be rotated normally to the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 via the CEC line.
(S75).
[0067]
Returning to FIG. 10, when the system control unit 23 of the AV amplifier 20 receives a
notification from the system control unit 33 of the projector 30 via the CEC line (YES in S66),
whether the notification content is a normal notification or not (S67). If the notification is normal
(YES in S67), the process ends. On the other hand, if it is an abnormality notification (NO in S67),
the orientation of the projector left speaker SLP and the projector right speaker SRP could not be
directed to the viewing position, and that effect is displayed on the operation display unit 24 to
notify the user. . Furthermore, in order to turn the direction of the projector left speaker SLP and
the projector right speaker SRP toward the viewing position, the distance SSBL Distance from the
viewing position to the surround back left speaker SSBL in the speaker setting table and the
surround back left It is displayed on the operation display unit 24 that at least one of the height
10-05-2019
20
SSBL Height of the speaker SSBL needs to be changed, and the user is notified (S68).
[0068]
As described above, according to the present embodiment, by inputting the setting contents of
the speaker setting table, it is possible to turn the direction of the projector left speaker SLP and
the projector right speaker SRP to the viewing position.
[0069]

the viewing position as shown in FIG. 12, the central audio data C is reproduced using the
speaker provided in the projector 30.
[0070]
The memory 25 stores a projector arrangement table shown in FIG. In addition, it is possible to
input information as to whether the projector 30 is disposed in front of the viewing position or in
which the projector 30 is disposed behind the viewing position by the user operation via the
operation display unit 24. When the information indicating that the projector 30 is to be
arranged in front of the user is input by the user operation, the system control unit 23 sets
forward of the user in the projector arrangement table and arranges the projector 30 behind
the user. When the information to the effect is input, the system control unit 23 sets rear of
