The RATEM project objective is to achieve both low-cost and high-quality 3D audio requirements to enable more realistic immersive teleprecencing and entertainment. To achieve the objectives, our development tasks and main research areas are listed below.

1.  Design of biologically inspired miniature microphone array

2.   Real-time multiple acoustic sources 3D direction finding

3.   Real-time directional signal acquisition and enhancement

4.   Real-time 3D audio reproduction

Our audio research group is currently working together with the video and FPGA/GPU groups for integrating and implementing a realistic real-time audio-video telepresence.
