Sound & Image Location TestSound & Image Location Test



The test experiment I designed set out to test the ability of various people from musical and non-musical backgrounds to locate sounds from around the listener using 5.1 Surround Sound while watching a video which played across 4 monitors directly in front of them.

The intention was to find out whether subjects would tend to draw their answers towards the location of the imagery, and if this was the case to suggest that home surround sound systems may be drastically limited by the size of the television set.

Studying at BU has allowed me to meet many people from various walks of life and helped me to discover what it is I am truly interested in.
