W15 - Synchronization in a Multichannel Digital Age
Thomas Sporer, Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology, IDMT - Ilmenau, Germany
Once upon a time, not so long ago, in any system built up from separate items of digital audio equipment everything would be locked to house sync. Now, systems are increasingly built from equipment that is connected to an asynchronous network without a separate sync input; indeed, in many environments (such as in the home) there is no house sync available. And, increasingly, sound fields are produced by independent digitally-interfaced loudspeakers. This workshop examines requirements for synchronization in these scenarios and techniques for achieving it.
