This workshop presents case studies and recent research results on latency in networked audio systems. Case studies include live concert experiences, spatially distributed performance issues and solutions, and studio design issues. Possible topics for discussion include:
• Monitoring/FOH for live concerts and productions
• Sound reinforcement for theater or classical performance
• Project and professional recording studio
• Teleconference, VoIP, distance learning, performance
• Acoustics and acoustical design
Participants will address the following questions:
• What are the specific effects of latency on performers and audience?
• When latency becomes obtrusive, what measures can be taken to mitigate it?
• What sort of tradeoffs to you deal with in balancing latency issues with other system performance metrics?
• Are there cases where latency is a useful attribute?
• Identify and quantify the latency critical aspects within your application area.
