About the Project
This project will focus in particular on transaural reproduction, which is particularly sensitive to listener position and attempts to deliver the correct cues for immersive 3-D surround sound to the ears using two or more loudspeakers typically located in the the forward plane of the listener. The effect of source/listener movement on the tonal quality of the reproduced audio will be measured through formal psychoacoustic testing at specified locations within the listening zone, as well as modeling of the reproduction scenarios. In particular, impairments in tonal quality due to different levels of adaptive room-acoustic equalisation, which is a core component for transaural reproduction, will be studied. The data will contribute to the development of new algorithms for soundfield reproduction for interactive and immersive audio systems.
Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Music Technology or a closely related subject.
