The NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament has often been described as one of the greatest sports tournaments, due to the unpredictability of college sports wrapped in the tradition of generations of fans. Bringing this unique experience to fans across a variety of delivery platforms is a complex technical challenge.

Starting with games originating from eight venues ranging from on campus sports facilities to professional sports arenas, maintaining a consistent audio experience across all of the games and platforms pushes the limits of technology.

This panel follows the entire audio signal path from originating the mix at the game venues, capturing and packaging all of the game feeds into an assortment of consumer products, and delivering that experience across a wide assortment of devices.

AES Technical Council This session is presented in association with the AES Technical Committee on Broadcast and Online Delivery
