W5 Multichannel Audio Production for Broadcasting (Seminar and Workshop)

Kimio Hamasaki, NHK, Tokyo, Japan
Florian Camerer, ÖRF, Vienna, Austria

Multichannel audio is now a big topic for recording industries. But it is still quiet within broadcasting networks. Only a few broadcasting companies in the world broadcast real 5.1 surround. There are many issues to be discussed before broadcast companies will consider moving towards multichannel sound production and broadcasting. These issues include:
Practical 5.1 recording aimed at domestic listening conditions
How to record and broadcast 5.1 audio feeds for TV
How to make compact 5.1 surround recording systems for location production
What is the advantage of 5.1 surround for viewers and listeners
Et cetera
