Vislab dataset

University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, version 1.0, released Aug. 2014.

Room impulse response (RIR) data were recorded defining the acoustic transfer function from -- loudspeakers in a circular array to -- microphones located in two zones inside the circle. Each RIR is -- samples at 48 kHz. The dataset was captured in the University of Surrey's "Vislab" in --, and includes metadata describing all microphone and loudspeaker positions, the room size and ambient temperature, plus some photos.

Other researchers may find the data useful for designing and analysing the performance of spatial audio techniques in a fairly dry, reflective acoustic environment. The dataset has previously been used in the following papers:
