Introduction to 3D Audio Research at the Applied Psychoacoustics Lab (APL)

Lee, H. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


This talk will overview recent 3D audio research conducted at the Applied Psychoacoustics Lab (APL) at the University of Huddersfield. The APL, established by Dr Hyunkook Lee in 2013, aims to bridge gap between fundamental psychoacoustics and audio engineering. The talk will first describe some of the fundamental research conducted on various perceptual aspects of 3D audio, followed by the introduction of practical engineeringmethods developed based on the research. The topics to be covered include: vertical stereophonic perception, 3D and VR microphone techniques, vertical interchannel decorrelation, phantom image elevation effect, new time-level trade-off function, perceptually motivated amplitude panning (PMAP), virtual hemispherical amplitude panning (VHAP), Perceptual Band Allocation (PBA), etc. Additionally, the APL’s software packages for audio research will be introduced.
