The Audiovisual Technology Group at the Institute of Media Technology is a growing international, interdisciplinary university research team working on topics related to auditory, visual and audiovisual technology and perception, AR/VR/MR, multimedia networks, Quality of Experience and HCI. The AVT group is also part of the newly established I3TC (Ilmenau Interactive Immersive Technologies Center, www.tu-ilmenau.de/i3tc). Our research ranges from basic research on multimedia and AR/VR/MR/XR technologies, network engineering and human perception and experience to applied research in collaboration with industry partners.
The position is part of publicly funded projects with partners from academia and industry. In the considered Social XR (eXtended Reality) services, conversation participants are represented as volumetric visual information. Different types of displays will be used in this context, ranging from classical screens,head-mounted displays (HMDs) to holographic displays. Moreover, spatial audio may be used with communication partners or conference participants represented in an audiovisual Mixed Reality (MR) environment.
