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...

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...

Cellular and Functional Optical Coherence Tomography of the Human Retina (The Cogan Lecture)

submitted by: arvojenny
An imaging modality that allows for fast, simultaneous, noninvasive probing of both three-dimensional (3D) cellular resolution retinal morphology and depth-resolved function could substantially improve the early diagnosis of various retinal diseases that are the leading causes of blindness worldwide and could contribute to a better understanding of retinal pathogenesis and enhanced therapy monitoring. In addition to user friendliness, reliability, and cost, the key technological parameters...
