The Accelerating Pace of Change in Television Audio

Keynote Address: Tom Sahara, Vice President, Operations and Technology, Turner Sports; Chairman, Sports Video Group

What Just Happened?
The impacts of mobile and fixed streaming services have been even greater and more far-reaching than previously predicted. Will this pace of change continue … or accelerate?

Other discussion topics will include:

Wireless Spectrum Roadmap
The FCC’s recent release of rule making around the 600 MHz incentive auction and wireless microphone use provides some clarity about the future but still leaves many questions unanswered.
ATSC 3.0 Audio Update
The multi-year process of defining an audio standard for next-generation broadcast television is coming to a close. What capabilities can we expect? Will ATSC 3.0 provide a template for other future audio services?
Microphone Metadata and Network Control
Networked wireless and native IP microphones have the potential to streamline identification and control of multiple sources in complex mixing environments. How does organic microphone metadata change our approach to mixing, automation, and object audio authoring?
Console Metadata Authoring
As console mixing functions become virtualized over the production WAN, best practices and universal standards need to keep up with the demand for real-time exportable metadata. How is that going?
Higher-Order Ambisonics and Scene-Based Audio
Recent advances in audio coding and real-time processing have made the application of HOA capture and encoding techniques significantly more practical. What are the practical implications of applying HOA techniques to real-time production?
Audio Definition Modeling
Recent EBU standards-making efforts around ADM technology and Broadcast Wave File extensions encompassing ADM open the door for standardized object metadata. With the backing of Dolby and others, is universal audio file interoperable delivery around the corner?

The DTV Audio Group at AES is produced in association with the Sports Video Group and is sponsored by: Calrec, Dolby Laboratories, DTS, JBL, Lawo, Linear Acoustic, Studer.
