Lip sync remains a complex problem, with several causes and few solutions. From production through transmission and reception, there are many points where lip sync can either be properly corrected or made even worse. This session's panel will discuss several key issues. Where do the latency issues exist? How can the latency be measured? What correction techniques exist for controlled environments? How does video display design affect lip sync? Who is responsible for implementing the mechanisms that ensure lip sync is maintained when the signal reaches your television?

Join us as our panel addresses these questions and more.
