Sound for Digital Cinema and Television
Chair: Brian McCarty (Send E-mail) Chair: Julius Newell (Send E-mail) Forum: Committee Discussion Forum
Sound for Digital Cinema and Television TC had a great turnout in Rome, Italy for our workshops at the May Convention.
We were especially happy to have featured three world-class Italian sound mixers in the program. Thanks to Marco Coppolecchia, Simone Corelli, and Carlos Zarattini for sharing their skills with the AES.
Also of note was the technical presentation on the shortcomings of current cinema Standards and alignment practices from Philip Newell and David Murphy. Thanks to them both for their travel to Rome to add their voice to this important topic.
Workshop ideas for the fall New York Convention are timely NOW!
