Register for ‘Crowd-Less Sports Audio III, NFL Edition’ on September 30

With the NFL season underway and games largely being played in empty stadiums, once again broadcast audio is being supplemented with “enhanced” crowd sounds which, in this case, have been carefully curated for each team and venue by NFL Films. At the same time, reduced noise levels are offering unprecedented opportunities to pick up field-of-play natural sound which is normally buried under a roar of noise.

In addition to learning about how the enhanced crowd effects were created and are being played out, DTV Audio Group will join leading A1s along with production specialists, sound designers, and other DTVAG members, to learn how they are responding to the demands of production to blend these elements into a cohesive and realistic mix.
