VisiSonics teams with University of Maryland on improving audiogram technology
VisiSonics, a leader in 3D spatial audio technologies, has teamed up with the University of Maryland to develop audiogram technology that improves listeners’ ability to hear content.
An audiogram is a graph that shows the softest sounds a person can hear at different pitches or frequencies.
Experts at the University of Maryland and VisiSonics have developed testing techniques for quick remote audiogram measurements.
“VisiSonics is excited to take audio personalisation to the next level with the development of audiogram technology that allows us to adapt content in software based upon individual listening capabilities,” Ramani Duraiswami, VisiSonics chief executive officer and professor in the Department of Computer Science at University of Maryland, said.
Visionics envisions the new audiogram technology being used in gaming and military headsets and web-based software.
“We’re excited to take the principles and techniques from hearing science and audiology and marry them to VisiSonics’ spatial audio technology, creating a listening experience that is truly optimized to each individual and several distinct types of audio listeners take in,” said Matthew Goupell, founder of the University of Maryland’s Auditory Perception and Modeling Lab and co-director of the Maryland Cochlear Implant Center.
