Multi-Device Playback Synchronization
The goal of multi-device playback synchronization is to ensure that the audio output of all devices in the same physical location are in sync. This creates a "surround sound" effect for the in-person participants, enhancing the volume and telepresence of the remote participants.
Playback synchronization is necessary for de-reverberation (see Echo and Feedback Cancellation).
- It is important to ensure that the audio playback is as close to perfectly synchronized as possible, as even small discrepancies can be noticeable and disruptive to the user experience.
- The method you choose to implement playback synchronization should be efficient and have minimal impact on the overall latency of the audio transmission.
- In cases where the network connection is unstable or has high latency, it may be necessary to use additional techniques such as buffering and packet loss recovery to ensure smooth audio playback.
