The purpose of this paper is to present a new method of conducting an audio-visual correlation analysis employing a head-motion-free gaze tracking system. First, a review of related works in the domain of sound and vision correlation is presented. Then assumptions concerning audio-visual scene creation are shortly described. The objectivization process of carrying out correlation tests employing gaze-tracking system is outlined. The gaze tracking system developed at the Multimedia Systems Department is described, and its use for carrying out subjective tests is given. The results of subjective tests examining the relationship between video and audio associated with the video material are presented. Conclusions concerning the new methodology, as well as future work direction, are provided.
