T5 - Lipsync in the Latency Age

Friedrich Gierlinger, IRT Munich

Synchronization of audio and video through the whole broadcast chain became ever more challenging with the switch to fully digital production methods, wireless picture acquisition practices, omnipresent different processing latency, and an unavoidable delay in consumer displays that may or may not be able to be compensated.
