VidTIMIT Audio-Video Dataset
The VidTIMIT dataset is comprised of video and corresponding audio recordings of 43 people, reciting short sentences.
It can be useful for research on topics such as automatic lip reading, multi-view face recognition, multi-modal speech recognition and person identification.
The dataset was recorded in 3 sessions, with a mean delay of 7 days between Session 1 and 2, and 6 days between Session 2 and 3.
The sentences were chosen from the test section of the TIMIT corpus.
There are 10 sentences per person.
The first six sentences (sorted alpha-numerically by filename) are assigned to Session 1.
The next two sentences are assigned to Session 2 with the remaining two to Session 3.
The first two sentences for all persons are the same, with the remaining eight generally different for each person.
In addition to the sentences, each person performed a head rotation sequence in each session.
The sequence consists of the person moving their head to the left, right, back to the center, up, then down and finally return to center.
The recording was done in an office environment using a broadcast quality digital video camera.
The video of each person is stored as a numbered sequence of JPEG images with a resolution of 512 x 384 pixels.
90% quality setting was used during the creation of the JPEG images.
The corresponding audio is stored as a mono, 16 bit, 32 kHz WAV file.
