Resumen:
Una universidad británica ha desarrollado un software que permite identificar, extraer y localizar en el campo sonidos clave en la transmisión de eventos deportivos en directo (por ejemplo, las patadas del balón y el silbato del árbitro). Este nuevo desarrollo ofrece la ventaja de mejorar la inmersión del espectador. El prototipo ha sido probado con éxito. La universidad busca socios interesados en establecer acuerdos comerciales con asistencia técnica, con opción a adquirir los derechos de licencia exclusiva.

Details

Tittle:
New automated software to improve audio during television broadcasts
Summary:
A North West UK University has developed software that enables key sounds contained within live sport broadcast feeds (e.g. the kicking of a football or the referee's whistle) to be identified, extracted and spatially located on the pitch. This new development has the advantage of increasing the immersion of a spectator. The developers offer a unique opportunity to be involved in the project in a commercial with technical assistance partnership with exclusive licensing rights.
Description:
The sound quality when watching broadcast sports events such as a football match has improved greatly over the last decade. However, individual sounds can be lost or disappear amongst the general background noise and is still not quite the same experience as attending the event live. Researchers at a North West University with strong connections to the digital and media sector have recognised this and developed software that enables key sounds contained within live sport broadcast feeds (e.g. the kicking of a football or the referee's whistle) to be identified, extracted and spatially located on the pitch. As well as automated sound mixing, similar technology can be the future basis to enable individuals to self-edit the audio feed of a broadcast for an immersive experience.
A prototype system has been successfully demonstrated with UK Premier League broadcast feed and the project is now ready for commercialisation.
Advantages and Innovations:
The main Innovations are:
Physical origin of sounds located to within 30 cm
Automates live mixing conventionally requiring experienced sound engineer.
Operates in pseudo real-time (< 1 second delay)
The software has the following advantages:
Automatic storage of individual "audio objects"
Objects can be recombined for a specific listener experience
Individual sounds can be amplified for dramatic effect.
Stage of Development:
Prototype available for demonstration
IPs:
Copyright
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
UK copyright claimed on the software.

Partner sought
