Encoding and Communicating Navigable Soundfields

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • We will solve fundamental problems in the recording, compression and communication of sound scenes so that they can be reproduced at any chosen listening point. The novel approach uses practical numbers of microphones and offers a solution to the complex problem of transmitting listener navigable soundspaces. The project will use new combinations of zonal recording with wavefield and sound object recording to create innovative and practical solutions to providing realistic spatial audio experiences for applications such as 3D-TV, virtual training and surveillance.
