What do you think of Audio Zoom for phones?

Do you know what is Audio Zoom for smartphones? The phenomenon in which our brains are able to focus on precise auditory elements while filtering out all other sounds is called the “cocktail party effect”. This ability of our brains in such situation, studied in psychoacoustics, is known as the cocktail party effect. Given its usefulness, it’s only a matter of time before the smartphone industry follows suit, bringing it to our fingertips under Audio Zoom’s official term.

Samsung said,”With the Zoom-In Mic, you can use a pinch gesture on the screen while recording a video to zoom in or out, and when you zoom in, the sound of the object you’re zooming in will get louder. And surrounding sounds are no longer suppressed when zoomed out.”

Along with Samsung, Apple has also equipped its devices with the technology starting with the iPhone 11 Pro. But the iPhone 11 Pro and Galaxy Note 10+/20 Ultra aren’t the only devices with audio zoom: the first instance dates back to the LG G2 in 2013, followed by the HTC H11 in 2017. Nokia’s Audio Zoom tech is featured in the Oppo Find X2 and X2 Pro. The Huawei P40 series and OnePlus 8 Pro also have audio zoom.

According to Nokia, Audio Focus technology selects the desired direction and attenuates incoming sound from other directions. When the strength of this effect is dynamically controlled, for example, in conjunction with the visual zoom of a camera, then the effect is called audio zoom.

The main technique for audio zoom is called beamforming or spatial filtering. It allows changing the directionality of the recording, i.e. the sensitivity according to the direction of the sound source, and shaping it in any necessary way. The best directivity in this case is hypercardioid mode, which boosts sound from the direction your camera is pointing at while attenuating sound from all other directions, commonly known as background noise.

The starting point for this technology is that the omnidirectional microphones must be distributed as widely as possible, that is, the more microphones there are and the greater the distance, the greater the possibility. When a device is equipped with two microphones, they are usually located on the top and bottom to maximize the distance between them. The signals captured by the microphones are then optimally combined to produce a hypercardioid pattern.

Furthermore, there are currently no good technical solutions to simulate real wind noise in natural acoustic environments under laboratory conditions. Manufacturers therefore had to develop their own digital windshield technology based on the evaluation of the audio recordings, in order not to be limited by the industrial design of the product.
