“Loudness Control for Radio and Internet Streaming”
For his 27th year as chairman of Broadcast and Streaming Sessions, David Bialik has developed sessions that offer a look at the implications of how new technologies will affect broadcast and streaming audio, such as “Audio For 4K TV” and “Broadcasting During Disasters,” a look at how Hurricane Sandy impacted news and other broadcast operations, as well as updated iterations of issues like loudness and maintenance.
“As always, what we’re doing is taking key issues and technologies in the broadcast and streaming domains and looking at them closely and intensely, but in a way that’s as relevant and accessible as possible to the greatest number of people,” said Bialik, who also works as the project manager for streaming operations at CBS Radio in New York City. “We make a special effort to develop mini-tracks focused on topic-related issues. For example, attendees will find groupings of events on Troubleshooting, Audio for TV, and Radio and Streaming, which are virtually crash courses on these issues. We strive to make them interesting and entertaining, but still keeping the information at the highest level.”
The Broadcast/Streaming series features a mix of new topics and updated examinations of the familiar. Sessions include:
