Vincent Verdult is currently Senior Information Security Consultant at the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations, The Hague, the Netherlands.
He was born in 1974 in the Netherlands. From 2001 to 2005, he was an assistant professor in systems and control engineering at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands.
He has always had a keen interest in audio and video engineering. In his spare time, he has used his engineering knowledge to design and build his own subwoofers, create and install his own acoustical devices, and optimize his audio-video set-up in six different rooms over the last 20 years.
Improving the Listening and Viewing Experience
Vincent Verdult, Routledge (2019)
A comprehensive guide that will help you set up a modern audio-video system in a small room such as a home theatre or studio control room. This book covers everything you need to know to optimize the reproduction of multichannel audio and high-resolution video. It provides concrete advice on equipment set up, display calibration, loudspeaker positioning, room acoustics, and much more.
A Least Squares Approach
Michel Verhaegen and Vincent Verdult, Cambridge University Press (2007)
Filtering and system identification are powerful techniques for building models of complex systems. This book discusses the design of reliable numerical methods to retrieve missing information in models derived using these techniques. Emphasis is on the least squares approach as applied to the linear state-space model.
Photography is an outlet for my creative mind. A welcome addition to my technical background and training as an electrical engineer. For me, photography makes the world much more colorful. I use photography to show that the chaos that surrounds us is full of structure and geometry. I am always looking for strong graphical elements and compositional lines to share this vision. I am attracted to subjects in nature, animals, and landscapes.
