Full text not available from this repository.


The spatial quality of audio content delivery systems is becoming increasingly important as service providers attempt to deliver enhanced experiences of spatial immersion and naturalness in audio-visual applications. Examples are virtual reality, telepresence, home cinema, games and communications products. The QESTRAL project is developing an artificial listener that will compare the perceived quality of a spatial audio reproduction to a reference reproduction. The model is calibrated using data from listening tests, and utilises a range of metrics to predict the resulting spatial sound quality ratings. Potential application areas for the model are outlined, together with exemplary results obtained from some of its component parts.
