Tutorial: T9 - Large Room AcousticsPresenter:
Diemer de Vries, RWTH Aachen University - Aachen, Germany; TU Delft - Delft, Netherlands
In this tutorial, the traditional and modern ways to describe the acoustical properties of "large" rooms—having dimensions large in comparison to the average wavelength of the relevant frequencies of the speech or music to be (re-)produced—will be discussed. Theoretical models, measurement techniques, the link between objective data and the human perception will be discussed. Is it the reverberation time, or the impulse response, or is there more to take into account to come to a good assessment?
