Subjective Audio Quality Test — MPEG SAOC

In mid 2010 I designed and supervised a subjective audio quality test of the MPEG-D Spatial Audio Object Coding technology. This technology permits multiple audio “objects” which are each in a separate audio input channel to be mixed together into one or two channels, compressed using MPEG AAC, and then decoded to recover the separate audio object channels.

The report, N11657 Report on Spatial Audio Object Coding Verification Tests, is available at http://mpeg.chiariglione.org/standards/mpeg-d/spatial-audio-object-coding.
