Funded PhD 3D 5G Immersive Audio for Urban Outdoor Heritage Contexts (Bursary&Fees), DL 19 April
3D 5G Immersive Audio for Urban Outdoor Heritage Contexts
This project will address a research gap concerning the understanding of the combined use of 3D and 5G technologies to engage heritage audiences. The project will be novel in approach in that it will use a combination of 3D immersive audio and 5G technology to create heritage-specific content and to develop new audiences for the heritage sector. It will create a prototype environment for the creation, curation and dissemination of heritage-specific 3D audio.
For this, it will combine the Innovate UK funded Brighton Digital Catapult 5G testbed for high-speed content streaming and low latency, Google Resonance Audio tools for 3D sound, the Echoes Creator for geolocative sound and outdoor Heritage locations in Brighton, with a co-design approach.
This project is a four-year integrated MRes/PhD studentship in the SEAHA Centre for Doctoral Training ( ), funded by the EPSRC, UCL, the University of Brighton, the University of Oxford, and SEAHA heritage and industrial partners.
The project is fully funded for UK resident students for four years, with fees covered and a stipend beginning at £18,172 (pro rata). EU students are eligible for a fees-only award. Unfortunately, International students are not eligible to apply.
