Workshops Define 129th AES Convention "Bridge To Future" MissionRethinking the Digital Audio Workstation - Wireless Audio Streaming - BluRay Audio (October 07, 2010)
Rethinking the Digital Audio Workstation - Wireless Audio Streaming - BluRay Audio
Commenting on the quality and diversity of this year's Workshops, David Bowles said, "Our goal was to seek topics with the potential for deeper influence on future thinking. Our presenters have impeccable credentials and the perspective to support their ideas."
RETHINKING THE DIGITAL AUDIO WORKSTATION: Moderator, Michael Hlatky (accessive tools GmbH); panelists: Allen Saego (London Metropolitan University), Bernard Mont-Reynard (SoundHound Inc.), Guy McNally (Uncut Video Inc.), Jörn Loviscach (University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld) Today's DAWs much resemble those of 1989. Considering technology advances, we should be doing better. Potential improvements include: real-time online cross-DAW collaboration, leveraging social networks for finding optimal effect settings, and making DAWs not only bulletproof, but foolproof. This workshop will survey existing technologies; examine possible synergies from other fields of computing sciences, and propose improvements and radical changes to DAW software.
THE CHALLENGE OF PRODUCING BluRay: Moderator Stefan Bock (MSM Munich); panelists Mark Waldrep and colleagues from Dolby and DTS - BluRay is gaining momentum as a storage medium, a platform for high definition video and audio and even as a super-high-quality format for audio-only titles. Do mixing and mastering engineers need to change their workflow to incorporate such formats? What is the challenge of working for BluRay compared to other surround formats?
LIVE MONITORING AND LATENCY WITH DIGITAL AUDIO NETWORKS: Moderator, Umberto Zanghieri (ZP Engineering) and panelists Carl Bader (Aviom); Kevin Gross (AVA Networks) and Michael Lester (Shure), will address the increasing adoption of digital audio networks for live events and the impact of audio signal latency as perceived on stage. Topics include: Personal monitoring; traditional, speaker-based monitoring and, performers' idiosyncratic preferences and habits.
KEEP TURNING IT DOWN! DEVELOPING AN EXIT STRATEGY FOR THE LOUDNESS WARS: Moderator Martin Walsh (DTS Inc.) panelists: Bob Ludwig, Thomas Lund, Bob Katz, Susan Rogers will deliberate one of the pivotal issues of our time: Ending the loudness war and returning peace, harmony and dynamic range to the people. Alternatives to aggressive dynamic range compression e.g. seasoned mastering techniques, gain normalization algorithms and standards will be addressed.
ADDITIONAL WORKSHOPS INCLUDE:
* Applications For High-Quality Audio Over Long-Distance Networks
* Paths to High-Resolution Downloads
* The Return To Quality In Audio Production
* Audio System Coverage for Auditoria and Cinemas
* AES 42 and Digital Microphones
* The Future Is Tactile How Does Whole Body Vibration Affect Perception of Binaural Audio Over Headphones?
