Event to be held in conjunction with 2009 HPA Technology Retreat
WASHINGTON, D.C., January 07, 2009 – The Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) is organizing a one-half day seminar on audio technology to be held on February 17, 2009. The “ATSC Audio Summit, Ver. 2.0” will be an opportunity for interested members of the media production and broadcasting communities to attend informative presentations, discussions and demonstrations on AC-3 audio, with a particular focus on loudness and lip-sync issues.
Presenters are audio professionals, active in the industry and familiar with the work the ATSC has underway to address the challenges relating to digital television sound.
This program is a follow-up seminar to an event held last year on audio issues. The focus of the 2008 program was defining the audio issues facing professionals; 2009 will focus on solutions. Program topics will include Essential Elements of the Dolby Digital Signal, Audio Measurement, Mixing and Monitoring, Audio Metadata, Dynamic Range Control, and Sorting Out Lip Sync.
“The presentations at this summit are important for the industry, and reflect the work by ATSC over the past year,” says Jerry Whitaker, ATSC Vice President. “While this work is ongoing, a number of important discoveries and conclusions have already been made. What we have learned so far will be outlined during this seminar.”
The Audio Summit will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run until 1:00 p.m. The event will be held at the Westin Mission Hills Resort and Spa, 71777 Dinah Shore Dr., Rancho Mirage, CA 92270. Additional information can be found on the HPA web site; see http://www.hpaonline.com/.
