AUDIO POST PRODUCTION IN 24p HDTV AND RELATED FORMATS
Moderator: Dennis Weinreich, Videosonics Cinema Sound, London, UK
The challenge of new technologies has significant impact on our professional workflow. As cutting-edge sound people we must be able to understand how best to utilize these technologies to benefit most from them-both technically and creatively. We need to understand what the technology is attempting to address and how we should use it to our best advantage. Some of us will try to find where it fits into our existing work flow. Others will see new creative opportunities. Many advances require complete rethinking of how we approach our job in order to benefit from them. HD 24p is one such advance that will have significant impact on how we do our jobs. Currently, the lighter and seemingly less complex production tools cause filmmakers to think that HD will give a better look and sound to production with less effort. In time, after the advantages are weighed against the disadvantages, we will probably find ourselves working in ways we currently cannot foresee.
Our panel will discuss the present position on working with HD and 24p, with particular emphasis on Audio Post Production. We will look at issues from the production floor to sound editorial to the dubbing stage. The panel will be made up of contributors from Post facilities, manufacturers' representatives, and professionals in the field who can share their HD 24p experiences and enlighten us about this new and interesting technology. This event is being presented by the APRS (UK) and co-hosted by the AES.
