Abstract

The Salford BBC Spatially-sampled Binaural Room Impulse Response dataset (SBS-BRIR) is a freely-available spatially-sampled binaural room impulse response dataset measured at the University of Salford’s ITU-R BS.1116-1 compliant listening room. The dataset includes measurements of 12 loudspeakers, positioned at ear-height, using a B&K HATS with a 2 degree head-azimuth resolution and 15 different listener positions. The dataset can be used in the subjective and objective evaluation and simulation of domestic spatial audio reproduction under a representative living room condition and for off centre listening positions. Measurement details, procedure and initial validation tests are described in a paper presented in the 21st International Congress on Sound and Vibration in 2014. A pre-print copy of the paper is included with this dataset. resolution and 15 different listener positions. The dataset can be used in the subjective and objective evaluation of domestic spatial audio reproduction. Measurement details, procedure and initial validation tests will be presented alongside the application of the dataset for future work.

Item Type: Dataset
Additional Information: The dataset is saved in the Measured Impulse Response Object (miro) format [www.audiogroup.web.fh-koeln.de/], as described in “P. Stade, B. Bernschutz and M. Ruhl, A Spatial Audio Impulse Response Compilation Captured at the WDR Broadcast Studios in 27th Tonmeistertagung - VDT International Convention, 2012”. The miro class enables a large amount of technical and positional information to be stored in a conveniently accessible package with functions included to convert the data to a number of output formats. Each listening position contains 12 miro files (one for each loudspeaker). Each miro file contains the full 360 degree head-azimuth BRIRs for both ears of the HATS and omni-directional room IRs for all loudspeakers.
