The event is produced by the DTV Audio Group, an organization of senior-level broadcast network executives promoting best practices and successful strategies for digital television audio production and delivery, in association with the Sports Video Group (SVG) and sponsored by Dale Pro Audio, Dolby Laboratories, DTS, JBL Professional, Linear Acoustic, Studer and Yamaha. It will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by advanced encoding schemes and to debate whether ubiquitous mobile and over-the-top content delivery demands a retrenchment to more limited audio or could lead to further audio advances. The discussion will also address the long-term implications of mobile data’s inevitable annexation of available broadcast spectrum and the resulting impact on wireless production, and will once again revisit the challenges of producing multichannel music for television.

“What we’ve done is reached out to the key innovators and leaders across the spectrum of broadcast television audio, from the networks, the programs, the facilities and the manufacturers who are deeply involved in charting the course of television sound into the future,” said DTV Audio Group Executive Director Roger Charlesworth. “These are the people who are asking and answering the questions about the future.”

The 135th AES Convention will take place from Thursday, October 17 to Sunday, October 20, at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
