The shift to multiplatform mobile devices, and how they impact audio delivery, will be discussed. So will the move to streaming content delivery and the importance of properly managing audio for both stereo and multichannel broadcasting.
“The Sound of the Cloud: Audio Implications of Multi-Platform Delivery,” will be produced by the DTV Audio Group, an organization of senior-level broadcast network executives promoting best practices and successful strategies for digital television audio production and delivery — in association with the Sports Video Group (SVG). This event will be open to all AES attendees.
