London (May 16, 2006)–Holophone CEO Jonathan Godfrey will discuss the most current applications for recording surround sound with leaders in the European broadcast industry as part of the HD Masters Conference, taking place May 17-18 in London.
The HD Masters Conference, hosted by BKSTS (British Kinematograph, Sound and Television Society) and SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers), has been coordinated as a forum for HD transmission leaders. Topics of discussion at the conference include transmission standards, camera design and use; sound capture, editing, and other production technology and techniques.
As the head executive of Holophone, Godfrey will highlight the company’s experience over its history and share examples of surround sound recordings during the panel discussion, “Multi-channel Audio Implications and HD Audio Surround Sound.” Holophone’s H4 SuperMINI, “the world’s first camera-mountable surround microphone,” the H3-D, an affordable surround recording solution, and the H2-Pro have all helped raise the bar on quality equipment for surround capture.
“As the deadline for the switch to HD transmission draws near, the broadcast industry as a whole needs to work together to review best practices for a seamless transition,” commented Godfrey. “The Masters Convention is an opportunity to participate in engaging dialogue with our peers; sharing innovations Holophone has developed in surround recording and receiving further insight on future industry needs.”
“The Multi-channel Audio Implications and HD Audio Surround Sound” discussion will take place Wednesday, May 17 at 4:50-5:30 PM in the BFI IMAX Theater. For more information on the HD Masters Conference, log onto www.hdmastersconference.com or call 44 (0) 20 7202 2011.
