The University of Canberra Broadcast News (UCBN) is a dataset containing audio-video recordings of TV broadcast news for research in auditory-visual speech processing and related fields.This dataset was recorded from Digital Video Broadcast live TV broadcast news shows of Australian TV channels, consisting of five recording sessions of 30 subjects over a period of one year, in 2006-07. The recordings comprised audio, video and some teletext data. Audio data were sampled at a 16000 Hz sample rate and stored as 16-bit Pulse-code modulation (PCM) encoded mono waveform audio files. Video files were compressed and stored in MPEG2 Video format. Teletext data includes subtitling text captured simultaneously during recording of the broadcast news.
The dataset was originally recorded for the purpose of Dr Girija Chetty's PhD thesis in the area of auditory-visual liveness checking, a subarea of auditory-visual speech processing (AVSP) and biometric identification. The dataset has since been used for various research purposes in the broad areas of AVSP and biometrics.
