The ASPIRE Project - Sensor Networks for Immersive Multimedia Environments
by Athanasios Mouchtaris and Panagiotis Tsakalides
Art, entertainment and education have always served as unique and demanding laboratories for information science and ubiquitous computing research. The ASPIRE project explores the fundamental challenges of deploying sensor networks for immersive multimedia, concentrating on multichannel audio capture, representation and transmission. The techniques developed in this project will help augment human auditory experience, interaction and perception, and will ultimately enhance the creative flexibility of audio artists and engineers by providing additional information for post-production and processing.
