Lancaster, PA (November 3, 2010)–Tim Carroll, president and founder of Linear Acoustic, will address audio issues facing broadcasters during two panels at the upcoming AES Convention
At AES 2010 in San Francisco, Carroll will first share his perspective on new technologies in mobile TV, IPTV, and non-real time delivery of program material in a Broadcast Session, “Innovations in Digital TV,” scheduled for Thursday, November 4 at 11:30 a.m. Carroll and other panel members will discuss current concepts and options involved in the effort to advance digital television to the next level.
On a second panel, “Loudness, Metadata, and Other Concerns for DTV,” scheduled for Friday, November 5 at 11 a.m., Carroll will offer his take on audio challenges facing broadcasters. And as an active member of the audio engineering community and an AES, IEEE, SMPTE, SBE, and ATSC member, Carroll will also share his insight on the latest developments in government mandated loudness control regulation.
“I’m honored to be part of the AES Broadcast Sessions again,” says Carroll. “In the last five years, we’ve focused on loudness solutions, surround sound issues, and standardization efforts. So where do we stand now? This discussion is just getting started. And with the rapid expansion of mobile and IPTV, we have plenty of solutions to talk about. I look forward to the dialogue.”
Carroll was instrumental in the development of AC-3, Dolby E, and Dolby Surround products while at Dolby Laboratories. He founded Linear Acoustic to provide innovative new industry solutions, and today the company’s AERO.air, AERO.qc, L.A.M.B.D.A.-II, and UPMAX-II products are standard in many broadcast facilities. Carroll has been recognized for his industry achievements with multiple awards, including two National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Prime Time Emmy awards.
