Edgar Choueiri, Professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University

March 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: Sennheiser’s new Pop-Up Store, 134 Prince Street in Manhattan

Speaker(s): Prof. Edgar Choueiri, Princeton University

As most humans have only two ears, in theory we should need only two channels/transducers to hear recorded audio in full 3D. Princeton University Professor Edgar Choueiri will describe the challenges of binaural audio through headphones and loudspeakers, recent solutions to these challenges, and the state of the art of processing and content delivery development tools for each. Choueiri will describe and demonstrate his BACCH 3D Sound technology and BACCH­dSP software. This system relies on crosstalk cancellation filters and the use of head tracking and automatic individualization for a particular listener. Headphone and loudspeaker reproduction hardware will also be discussed and demonstrated. To attend this meeting you must RSVP via the link below. (Click on "More Information") ABOUT Prof. Choueiri: Edgar Choueiri is professor of Applied Physics at Princeton University where he is Director of two research laboratories: The Electric Prolusion and Plasma Dynamics Propulsion Laboratory (where he works on advanced propulsion for deep space spacecraft), and the 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics (3D3A). He is the author of more than 200 scientific articles and publications and the recipient of numerous awards.

Past Event: Telling your Story with Sound

Telling your Story with Sound

February 7, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Location: Sennheiser pop-up store, 134 Prince Street, NYC

Moderated by: Jim Anderson

A podcast can be more than a monologue or an interview; it can be a rich environment for using sound to tell your story. One can use sound in many ways, whether it’s to set the scene, illustrate a concept, or enliven a journalistic endeavor. The talk will take the audience on an international aural journey from the 'hollars’ of Kentucky to the streets of Grenada in search of sounds. With Jim Anderson’s deep background in broadcasting, he will demonstrate the power of sound to illustrate and enrich a podcast.
