The Immersive Media Laboratory: Installation of a Novel Multichannel Audio Laboratory for Immersive Media Applications

Document Thumbnail

This engineering brief presents the novel multichannel audio laboratory for immersive media applications of the Institut fu¨r Kommunikationstechnik (IKT) with its varying multichannel loudspeaker arrangements and acoustical transparent projection screens of nearly 270°. We address the construction process and setup of the laboratory called Immersive Media Lab (IML). It was designed in compliance to the strict recommendations of the ITU-R BS.1116-3 in order to conduct research in 3D audio reproduction. Our brief will first address issues of space and room dimensions as well as the acoustical design of the new listening room. Furthermore, the flexible loudspeaker arrangement consisting of 28 active loudspeakers as well as the projection setup consisting of 3 high definition ultra-short throw video projectors is described.
