Perceptual Evaluation of an Augmented Audience Service under Realistic Live Conditions

Document Thumbnail

With the usage of future 4G+/5G technologies in wireless equipment for “Programme Making and Special Events” (PMSE) new innovative live services and applications are possible. In this paper our novel “Assistive Live Listening Service” is presented. The service provides individualized additional augmented audio content to every single listener at a concert or voice-based live event by using an augmented reality audio headset that is able to provide both environmental sounds and supplemental audio content. A listening experiment was performed under realistic live conditions to investigate if the service enhances speech intelligibility without a loss of perceptual live experience. The results show that a perceptual enhancement is possible. Further steps to improve the service are discussed.
