What would you like UKAN to do for you?
Expand network of active researchers in relevant fields.

How would you like to contribute to UKAN?
In any way that would benefit the SIGs' ongoing activity and growth. I'm Chair of the AES Technical Committee on Acoustics and Sound Reinforcement as well as a member of the IOA's Electroacoustics Group Committee. There is a push with both committees at present to strengthen ties with the acoustics community (both are very sound reinforcement/reproduction biased at present). I'm also a member of the WHO's technical working group for the development of Global Standards for Safe Listening Venues, which will have aspects related to certain SIGs within this network.

Equipment:
Hemi anechoic chamber w/KEMAR, turntable, SoundCheck, Clio, various NTI + Norsonic devices, etc.
Sound reinforcement lab (approx. 10m x 10m x 10m w/12 x 1T rigging points) w/state of the art sound, light and video equipment
2 x Ambisonics labs (36 channels, horizontal + vertical)
Approx. 6 x electronics + communications labs
Wind tunnel
Derby Theatre (approx. 550 seats)
Transmission suite (coming soon, development in progress)

Specialist Interest Groups (SIGs):
