4 Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow Posts in Spatial Audio & Vision, CVSSP, U.Surrey, UK

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Tue, 07/01/2014 - 15:38

Applications are invited for four Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow posts to join a 5 year research programme addressing joint audio-visual scene analysis for future spatial audio at home. Research will pioneer a listener centred approach to 3D sound production that can dynamically adapt to the listeners' environment and location to create a sense of immersion. This requires new models for listener perception of spatial audio in natural spaces together with the audio-visual signal processing to produce, deliver and reproduce listener centred spatial audio in the home.

The project is led by University of Surrey in collaboration with BBC Research and leading experts in 3D audio. The goal is to enable listeners to experience the sense of "being there" at a live event such as a concert or football match, from the comfort of their living room through delivery of immersive 3D sound in the home.
