David Bialik, chairman, AES Broadcast and Streaming Media Track
New York, NY (September 15, 2015)—“Production of A Prairie Home Companion,” a session on sound design, “Loudness for Streaming,” “Mixing for Live Tele-Media,” “Integrating Mobile Telephony” and “IP in Broadcast” are just some of the topics being prepped for the Broadcast and Streaming Media Track topics for the upcoming the 139th AES International Convention in New York this coming October.
Chaired by David Bialik, Broadcast and Streaming Media sessions are set to once again take the spotlight in New York City at the 139th AES International Convention, October 29 – November 1, 2015, at the Jacob Javits Center. Audio, video and digital media professionals are slated to present on a variety of topics regarding content, delivery, technology and more, curated by Bialik, chairman of the Broadcast and Streaming Media Track.
Slated topics will include Audio-over-IP, Over the Top (OTT) content, 4K and 8K broadcast video, facility design, adaptive streaming and other hot issues in audio and video programing distribution and production will take centerstage.
The track is once again hosting the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), which will be administering certification exams on Sunday of the convention; these serve as a way to educate while quantify skills to potential employers. Additionally, a session celebrating the 50th anniversary of the master antenna on the Empire State Building will be presented in conjunction with the SBE.
"The Broadcast and Streaming Sessions at the AES Convention have traditionally tried to emphasize different aspects of audio—from facility design, to production, transmission, reception, and listener experience,” stated Bialik. “The AES Convention tracks offer and encourage in-depth discussion of technology and technique, as opposed to sales presentations, instead focusing on audio science."
