This paper presents a system for identifying the room in an audio or video recording through the analysis of acoustical properties.The room identification system was tested using a corpus of 13440 reverberant audio samples.With no common content between the training and testing data, an accuracy of 61% for musical signals and 85% for speech signals was achieved.This approach could be applied in a variety of scenarios where knowledge about the acoustical environment is desired, such as location estimation, music recommendation, or emergency response systems.
