I'll be very interested in hearing the report. You outline a good set
of conditions for testing this perception, given some sort of audio
delay hardware, others would also be able to collect information. I
recognize the power of the human brain and its experience in judging
the validity of our senses. Humans probably are better at determining
if there is a consistent sound and vision relationship to natural
events such as talking heads rather than pops and beeps and flashes.
Back in the simpler days, one test set of images, I believe, included
a sequence of a wind up toy monkey beating a drum.
I'd really like to be able to algorithmically determine sound and
picture sync in arbitrary program material and display the
distribution of measured offsets over time. I could sell a few of
BTW, it may be hard to obtain program material with the audio
advanced in sync to that a delay setting greater than zero is
correct. Perhaps someone will have to burn a DVD with this
relationship for this type of testing.
Working on a science project to create a negative delay circuit...
