The Audio Communication Group is focused on the production, transmission and reception of music and speech in acoustic and electroacoustic systems. This includes the development of virtual acoustic realities by binaural technology and sound field synthesis, as well as their use for the experimental studies in music research and media psychology and for the composition and realization of computer music and sound art. The department operates two sound studios with different 3D audio systems (wave field synthesis, ambisonics, discrete multichannel sound), a media lab with stereoscopic panoramic projection and binaural synthesis, a mixed reality design lab and the world's largest facility for wave field synthesis with 832 channels and 2704 loudspeakers. In teaching, we offer, together with seven other departments of the TU Berlin, the master's program Audio Communication and Technology (M.Sc.), the scientific part of the Tonmeister program of the UdK Berlin as well as teaching on acoustics and sound design for the inter-university master's program in Design & Computation.
