Spatial Audio in Domestic Virtual Reality: Possibilities and limitations

Spatial Audio in Domestic Virtual Reality: Possibilities and limitations

4 Feb 2015 1:00PM - 4 Feb 2015 2:00PM

Description:

Dr. Gavin Kearney, Department of Theatre, Film and Television, University of York.
 
Recent advances in immersive video technology, such as ultra-high definition video or 3-D visual headsets like the Oculus rift, are paving the way for immersive 360-degree virtual reality media systems in the home. Surround sound systems will naturally accompany such video technologies but reproduction in domestic media ‘caves’ or on headsets is not without significant challenges. This talk discusses the role spatial audio will play in the development of personal and domestic VR systems and looks at the technological and content creation possibilities and limitations for immersive audio-visual media.
