Auralization in 3 VR systems with system-specific spatialization using Asset Manager's panner abstraction layer

submitted by: apryl
his is a short clip intended for use at the NIME 2011 convention in a presentation by Zachary Seldess. Toshiro Yamada demonstrates the Auralization in 3 VR systems with system-specific spatialization using Asset Manager's panner abstraction layer at KAUST Visualization Laboratory. The demonstration includes: 1) NexCave: 5 loudspeakers + 1 subwoofer using VBAP panning method 2) Cornea: 20 loudspeakers + 4 subwoofers using a custom 20-channel panning method 3) MPR: 8 loudspeakers + 4...

submitted by: apryl

This is a silent short clip intended for use at the KAUST SIGGRAPH booth in a series of video loops played during the convention.
Dina Garatly, Content Modeler and Producer at the KAUST Visualization Lab, created 3D models of a Nabataean tomb at Mada’in Saleh (Al-Hajir), Saudi Arabia to help archeologists with their study and annotation in the World Heritage Site.
For further details about the project, see the article in the KAUST Beacon, October 2010 Issue, Pg: 6-7.

Multi-language video playback using beam forming

submitted by: apryl
This is a multi-language audio demo used at the KAUST SIGGRAPH booth. For the full effect of the audio demonstration, this video was be available for preview in the KAUST booth at SIGGRAPH 2011. The demonstration used beam-forming to control the electroacoustic architecture of dialog in both english and arabic languages spatially in a designated area. Arabic listeners could stand a few feet away from english listeners and watch the same visuals comfortably without hearing the other...

Dr. Madhu Srinivasan, CG Developer at KAUST Visualization Laboratory generated 3D models and animations to visually simulate the first nanoparticle developed by KAUST Catalysis Center. KCC1 is the first Nanoparticle developed by KAUST Catalysis Center. Director of KAUST Catalysis Center, Dr. Jean-Marie Basset, Senior Research Scientist at KCC, Dr. Vivek Polshettiwar, and Dr. Dongkyu Cha of the Advanced Nanofabrication Imaging & Characterization Core Laboratory discuss the details of...

Music and Your Brain

submitted by: apryl
KAUST Professor Pierre Magistretti, Dean of the Chemical, Life Sciences and Engineering (CLSE) Division discusses an experimental study of neural activity using electro-physical recordings of pianists with one objective to find patterns or clues to better understand synchrony and creativity. For the KAUST Winter Enrichment Program Class, Lab to Film: Story-telling in Science we created this video to test the student equipment and discover any technical challenges that participants would...
