IPEM-ASIL: Infrastructure


The ASIL Lab, as a versatile collaboration between UGent's IPEM (audio & sensors), IDLab (VR, video), and MICT (Media, Innovation and Communication Technologies) integrates state-of-the-art technologies. ASIL is a medium size immersive lab so it is able to provide scenario’s for research involving groups. Within the context of engineering, art and humanities, it is currently working mainly with performances for  theatre, musea, architecture and tends to experiment with new artistic works and platforms.


The infrastructure consists of a 80-speaker setup, with audio over IP, for both Wavefield Synthesis and 7th order ambisonics (3D audio), which allows for in-depth experimenting with 3D sound and auralisation.  Apart from custom sensors, a fast Qualisis Motion capture system is available, Projection systems, a Wireless VR/AR system, Hyperscanning EEG and FNIR (near-infrared spectroscopy) equipment.
