“The 140th International AES Convention — Europe’s largest gathering of audio professionals from around the globe — is slated for June 4-7 at Paris’ Palais des Congrès. From cutting edge research to fundamentals to practical application, the four-day technical program brings the opportunity to network with and learn from leading audio industry luminaries. Special events — including technical tours of premier production facilities and installs, student focused sessions and a 3 day manufacturer exposition round out the Convention.”
EB4-3 3D Tune-In: The Use of 3D Sound and Gamification to Aid Better Adoption of Hearing Aid Technologies—Yuli Levtov, Reactify Music LLP – London, UK; Lorenzo Picinali, Reactify Music LLP – London, UK; Mirabelle D’Cruz, Reactify Music LLP – London, UK; Luca Simeone, 3D Tune-In consortium
3D Tune-In is an EU-funded project with the primary aim of improving the quality of life of hearing aid users. This is an introductory paper outlining the project’s innovative approach to achieving this goal, namely via the 3D Tune-In Toolkit, and a suite of accompanying games and applications. The 3D Tune-In Toolkit is a flexible, cross-platform library of code and guidelines that gives traditional game and software developers access to high-quality sound spatialization algorithms. The accompanying suite of games and applications will then make thorough use of the 3D Tune-In toolkit in order to address the problem of the under-exploitation of advanced hearing aid features, among others.
