Individual binaural listening solutions
The BiLi project aims to provide solutions for individualized binaural listening on a national level by using a network of research labs, SMBs, and media transmitters (A-Volute, France Télévisions, Radio France, Orange). The principle components of the project are how the quality of the experience offered by the binaural listening is evaluated, research and development of individualization solutions that eliminate the use of an anechoic room that require cumbersome measures, and defining an exchange format for binaural data that could lead to a standardization on an international level.
A-Volute participates in this project in the area of research and development of individualization solutions for binaural listening, as a mean to achieve HRTF filters from visual information such as photos, videos, and 3D scans. The main idea is to use this information to extract the most pertinent attributes, used to form a general model of the ear auricle and to adapt it to the individual. This involves mapping individuals for acoustic numerical calculations.
