Dr. Elena Shabalina of d&b audiotechnik will speak about “Environmental Noise Prediction for Open Air Events” on Wednesday, Oct. 10, at 13 h in the TA lecture hall.
In the past the main focus of loudspeaker manufacturers and sound system designers was to provide the best possible sound quality for the listeners. With the number of these events increasing along with the number of the affected inhabitants and their complaints, the focus is shifting towards including predicting and minimising the noise in the neighbourhood in the planning of an open air event. d&b and SoundPLAN came up with a way to close the gap between the environmental noise propagation models and a complex loudspeaker system models and a software tool NoizCalc that combines both. This presentation consists of two parts: the first deals with the motivation and the theoretical background of the NoizCalc prediction method and the second suggests a method of calculating the influence of audience on the propagation of sound

Presentation by Hyunkook Lee (University of Huddersfield) on Tuesday, Aug. 29, 3 pm, TA lecture room:
Psychoacoustics of surround sound with height
New surround sound formats such as Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D utilise loudspeakers placed at elevated positions, so-called the height channels. These are used for 3D sound panning and enhancing spatial impression. The mechanisms of human spatial perception for horizontal stereo and surround sound are now well understood. However, the perception of vertical stereophony with height channels relies on a fundamentally different psychoacoustic principles. This seminar will introduce past and current research on vertical stereophonic localisation and vertical interchannel decorrelation for vertical spread perception, as well as new 3D sound microphone array techniques and new 2D-to-3D upmixing techniques. The talk will be accompanied with 9.1 recording demos.
Hyunkook Lee is Senior Lecturer (i.e. associate professor) in music technology and the leader of the Applied Psychoacoustics Lab (APL) at the University of Huddersfield, UK. From 2006 to 2010, Dr. Lee was Senior Research Engineer in audio R&D at LG Electronics, South Korea. He received a B.Mus. degree in music and sound recording (Tonmeister) from the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, in 2002, and his Ph.D. degree in audio engineering and psychoacoustics from the Institute of Sound Recording (IoSR) at the same University in 2006. His current research includes spatial audio perception, capturing and rendering techniques for 3D and VR audio, intelligent sound engineering, and interactive virtual acoustics. Hyunkook is an active member of the Audio Engineering Society since 2001 and a fellow of the Higher Education Academy, UK.
