Abstract: An apparatus for generating relations between feature amounts of audio and scene type includes at least one processor and a memory. The memory is operatively coupled to the at least one processor. The processor is configured to set one of the scene types to each of clusters classifying the feature amounts of audio in one or more pieces of content. The processor is also configured to generate a plurality of pieces of learning data, each representative of a feature amount, from among the feature amounts of the audio, that belongs to each cluster and the scene type set for each cluster. The processor is also configured to generate an identification model representative of relations between the feature amounts of audio and the scene types by performing machine learning using the plurality of pieces of learning data.
Abstract: A grille and an acoustic device having a superior exterior design without impairment of acoustic efficiency are provided. The grille includes: a through hole-provided region having a plurality of through holes; and a non-through hole-provided region having a plurality of non-through holes each with a bottom, and provided adjacent to the through hole-provided region. The through holes and the non-through holes entirely provide a plurality of openings on an exterior surface of the grille. In the non-through hole-provided region, a depth of the non-through holes on a side close to the through hole-provided region is greater than a depth of the non-through holes on a side distant from the through hole-provided region.
Abstract: Provided is a content reproduction device including: a controller configured to: acquire playlist information indicating a reproduction order position of plural pieces of content; acquire reproduction requirement information indicating a condition required for reproduction of each piece of content; acquire reproduction enabling condition information indicating a condition for enabling the reproduction on the content reproduction device; and determine based on the reproduction requirement information and the reproduction enabling condition information whether each of piece of content is reproducible on the content reproduction device; and a storage configured to store information that is based on a determination result obtained by the controller.
Abstract: A fixed element is provided to be used in a position detection device for detecting a position of a movable element that moves on the fixed element. The fixed element includes a substrate, a plurality of first electrodes and a second electrode. The substrate has as first surface, a second surface and a low-dielectric constant area. The second surface faces in an opposite direction to the first surface. The low-dielectric constant area has a lower-dielectric constant than other portions of the substrate. The first electrodes are disposed on the first surface of the substrate. The first electrodes include three or more phases arranged one-dimensionally in a repeating pattern in a movement direction of the movable element. The second electrode is disposed on the first surface of the substrate and is arranged in the movement direction of the movable element adjacent the first electrodes.
Abstract: A data processing device includes: a digital signal processor; at least one processor; and at least one memory device configured to store a plurality of instructions, which when executed by the at least one processor, cause the at least one processor to operate to: output a first determination result relating to a scene of content through use of sound data; select processing for the sound data by a first selection method based on the first determination result; determine an attribute of the content from among a plurality of attribute candidates; and select the processing by a second selection method, which is different from the first selection method, based on a determination result of the attribute, wherein the digital signal processor is configured to execute the processing selected by the at least one processor on the sound data.

Abstract: An audio signal distribution device includes a receiver, a determiner, and a transmitter. The receiver receives information relating to capabilities of a distribution destination device to which an audio signal is distributed. The determiner, based on the capabilities of the distribution destination device in received information, determines a role of processing of the audio signal of each device including an own device and the distribution destination device and generates processing information according to the processing of the audio signal. The transmitter distributes the processing information and the audio signal to the distribution destination device.
Abstract: An audio equipment support include; a main body including a protrusion and being configured to be attachable to an audio equipment housing; a counterpart body including an outer edge and a recess contacting the protrusion, the outer edge of the counterpart body being positioned inward of an outer edge of the main body when viewed from a direction in which the protrusion and the recess are aligned; and a restriction member fixed to the main body and spaced apart from the counterpart body, the restriction member including a through-hole through which the counterpart body passes and being configured to restrict a distance between the main body and the counterpart body from reaching or exceeding a predetermined length.
Abstract: Headphones include: a speaker configured to output sound based on an input signal; a microphone configured to receive touch sound produced when a touch is performed on a user; and a command output device configured to, on the basis of a sound signal derived from the touch sound received by the microphone, determine a touch operation corresponding to the touch performed on the user, to output a command corresponding to the touch operation.
