DTV Audio Group Forum at AES 141, Los Angeles 2016
The Changing Face of Television Audio:
Objects, Immersivity, and Personalization
1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday, October 1, 2016

The explosion in streamed-content delivery to fixed and mobile devices has accelerated the adoption of advanced audio services for television. These offer immersive sound, enhanced personalization, and improved bandwidth efficiency. Cinema-quality immersive soundtracks are now starting to show up on popular streaming platforms. At the same time, the VR craze is driving interest and innovation in personalization and virtualized surround sound on mobile devices.

How is Hollywood coping with streamlining object workflows for episodic production? What tools are being developed to manage the demands of live production? While next-generation audio systems are becoming more widely deployed, a great deal of content is still being pushed through outdated format-and-dynamic-range-limited encoding workflows. How do we manage the loudness and consistency issues this creates? Can cinema-like television experiences coexist with cat videos and tornado alerts?

“The impact of streaming is upending the entire television business and audio is benefiting,” said Roger Charlesworth, Executive Director, DTV Audio Group. “The migration from traditional broadcasting to an IP stream-based model is accelerating the uptake of advanced encoding solutions with sophisticated audio services. This is good news, but expect turbulence along the way.”

Discussion topics will include:

VR is the ultimate personalized immersive experience. How will technologies and trends driven by VR re-calibrate our thinking about television sound?
