Ville Pulkki visits Hearing Systems

Friday 13 Jun 14
During the next month Professor Ville Pulkki from Aalto University, Finland, is visiting the Hearing Systems group. During his stay Ville Pulkki will give talks about spatial sound reproduction and perception.(TBA)

This month professor Ville Pulkki from Aalto University, Finland (Department of Signal Processing and Acoustics) is visiting the Hearing Systems group for the second time in the last 12 months.

The Spatial Sound Research team at Aalto University composes of 18 researchers (one Professor, one postdoc, 12 PhD students and 4 MSc students). The work by the team can be divided coarsely into research on spatial sound technologies, and on spatial audio perception.
Ville Pulkki is the inventor of Vector Base Amplitude Panning (VBAP) and more recently Directional Audio Coding (DirAC). He has been the principal investigator in EU ERC Starting Grant project “TePeSS – Technologies and Psychophysics of Spatial Sound” funded by the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme.

To be able to develop new algorithms for spatial audio, one should be able to measure quality in reproduction. One approach is to conduct psychoacoustic listening tests, in which listeners report in a formal way the attribute of spatial reproduction which is under research. The other approach is to use binaural auditory models to evaluate the reproduction. The Spatial Sound Research group has conducted research in both fields.
