Perceptual characterization of motion evoked by sounds for synthesis control purposes
Adrien Merer, Mitsuko Aramaki, Sølvi Ystad, Richard Kronland-Martinet
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/2422105.2422106

This article addresses the question of synthesis and control of sound attributes from a perceptual point of view. We focused on an attribute related to the general concept of motion evoked by sounds. To investigate this concept, we tested 40...

Perceptual importance of lighting phenomena in rendering of animated water
Micah Bojrab, Michel Abdul-Massih, Bedrich Benes
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/2422105.2422107

Recent years have seen increasing research in perceptually-driven reductions in the costs of realistically rendered imagery. Water is complex and recognizable, and continues to be in the forefront of research. However, the contribution of...

Generating stereoscopic HDR images using HDR-LDR image pairs
Elmedin Selmanović, Kurt Debattista, Thomas Bashford-Rogers, Alan Chalmers
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/2422105.2422108

A number of novel imaging technologies have been gaining popularity over the past few years. Foremost among these are stereoscopy and high dynamic range (HDR) Imaging. While a large body of research has looked into each of these imaging...

Sound sample detection and numerosity estimation using auditory display
Hannes Gamper, Christina Dicke, Mark Billinghurst, Kai Puolamäki
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/2422105.2422109

This article investigates the effect of various design parameters of auditory information display on user performance in two basic information retrieval tasks. We conducted a user test with 22 participants in which sets of sound samples were...

Abstract painting with interactive control of perceptual entropy
Mingtian Zhao, Song-Chun Zhu
Article No.: 5
DOI: 10.1145/2422105.2422110

This article presents a framework for generating abstract art from photographs. The aesthetics of abstract art is largely attributed to its greater perceptual ambiguity than photographs. According to psychological theories [Berlyne 1971], the...

Improving relative depth judgments in augmented reality with auxiliary augmentations
Mikko Kytö, Aleksi Mäkinen, Jukka Häkkinen, Pirkko Oittinen
Article No.: 6
DOI: 10.1145/2422105.2422111

Significant depth judgment errors are common in augmented reality. This study presents a visualization approach for improving relative depth judgments in augmented reality. The approach uses auxiliary augmented objects in addition to the main...
