We are an Intelligent Media company with a focus on R&D of disruptive technologies and solutions. We are using Machine Learning acoustic and vision techniques, to interpret the world around us and develop products and services for the creative, healthcare and manufacturing industries.
In the creative media sector, we are changing the SFX production process by integrating academic research excellence into innovative tools. We are partnering with post-production audio experts and award-winning sound design specialists, including Angell Sound, Dirty Dog Audio, Sonorize and Mixed Immersion, to bring a user-validated design methodology to the solutions we create.
Research & Development
Check out the exciting projects we are involved with
Sound Effects Synthesis
Sound synthesis models generated from any audio sample. Any sound can be turned into a controllable sound effect. Anyone can harness their creativity and become a sound designer, at low cost.
Autonomous Systems for Sound Integration and GeneratioN (ASSIGN)
This project will deliver and validate a decision-making system that controls sound generation and contextual placement within media production workflows.
Real-Time Sound Effects Synthesis (RTSFX)
A sound synthesis engine, with intuitive interface, that allows upload and analysis of SFX archives. Sounds can be then manipulated in real-time to produce a wide range of synthesis sounds.
Synthesis of Ambiance Sounds
The project involves the 360 immersive production of ambiance sounds that is highly demanded in the industry. This new service would be disruptive and replace traditional workflows.
Mimovi is a cloud-based, multi-language, platform that enables the online creation and sharing of video, audio and images.
Dirty Dog Audio
Dirty Dog audio (DDA) provides sound design, editing and mixing skills for TV and film post-production. Director Mike Wood, has credits on over 40 feature films and more than 100 hours of high-end broadcast documentaries and drama.
Will has a degree in Physical Sciences and an MSc in Astrophysics. After his studies, Will spent many years in music and film production and has headed multiple RPPtv projects, including our Innovate UK grants.
Russ has a degree in Electronics and more than 30 years experience in audio engineering technology development, working with some of the biggest names in the music and audio industry.

Extending his passion for music to his MSc in Sound and Music Computing, Julian is now one of RPPtv’s software developers focusing on both front and back-end development and finding better ways to integrate new technologies into the ecosystem.
Sam provides investigation into the application of current computing research for new product development, focusing on machine learning techniques, Convolutional Neural Networks, Neurogenesis and feature extraction in a computer vision based context.
KTP Reasearch Assosiate
Ken is a KTP Research Associate in Audio Modelling Development, (a partnership with the University of York, UK) developing a cloud based service that will enable users to convert material from digital audio archives into real time controllable audio files that can be used in cross platform media production.
Creative Business Manager
Charlotte's interest in sound during her MA has lead her to RPPtv where as creative business manager she can continue to explore sound though the richness that immersive and augmented reality could bring to enhancing our experiences of locations and events.
