Applied Media Systems Group

Welcome to the Applied Media Systems Group

The department of Applied Media Systems deals with the parametric description of audio visual sources and objects, and using neural networks and deep learning for it. Applications are multifaceted, such descriptions, for instance, can be used to implement sources into artificial scenes as in computer graphics or artificial scenes in video games, or separating audio sources from a mono or multichannel recording. Furthermore, an effective transmission via different transmission paths and the replay of these sources in a number of replay scenarios are possible.

For these scenarios, source models that meet the requirements of the desired application need to be developed, like suitable neural network structures. Afterwards, it has to be found out how the parameters of these models can be extracted or estimated in a recording, using different training and optimization schemes.

Examples are the separation of a singing voice from a musical piece, or separatiing 2 voices from a stereo signal, for instance for video conferencing or hearing aids. 

Another focus of the department within this topic is audio coding, specifically with a very low end-to-end delay, e.g. for communication applications and - for this purpose - necessary signal processing algorithms, such as low-delay filter banks and predictive coding.
