Finding the silver lining in the internet cloud
Traditional media people from broadcast and recording have a far different perspective from IT people. Compression now means two far different things to a seasoned audio engineer depending if the conversation is about dynamic range reduction or a data stream's efficiency. We must learn to communicate with one another. We must learn the TCP/IP language and protocols well enough to relate the needs to our IT counterparts and we need to be able to teach them, in their language, what we need them to do with us in order to accomplish our mission.
This panel will discuss the evolving relationship of audio and IT and how to improve not just the technical interfaces to learn, but the mutual understanding of our needs.
