N6 - High Performance over IPPresenter:
Rupert Brun, BBC Audio & Music - London, UK
In the summer of 2010 Brun conducted a simple experiment, making one week of classical music concerts available on-line in high quality and with wide dynamic range. He will explain how he used Twitter and a blog to get real time feedback from the audience and the overwhelming response from the public and press to this simple idea. In the autumn of 2010 it was decided that we would make the “HD Sound” feed permanently available and eventually made it the default for delivery of classical music over IP. This session will explore the future for delivery of audio to the audience over IP and some of the opportunities it presents, while acknowledging why it is seen as a threat to traditional broadcast.
