FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



Back by Popular Demand: DTV Audio Group Forum to
Appear at Upcoming 137th AES Convention

— “The Implications of Streamed Content Delivery on the Evolution of Television Audio Services”
to be held Friday, October 10, 1 p.m. through 6 p.m. —


New York, NY, September 23, 2014 — The Audio Engineering Society announces the return of the DTVAG (DTV Audio Group) – an organization of senior-level broadcast network executives promoting best practices and successful strategies for digital television audio production and delivery – to its special events roster at the upcoming 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, taking place October 9-12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Expanding on the popularity of last year’s debut, the DTVAG forum will continue to discuss the hot topic of streaming content delivery and its impact on today’s TV landscape. The forum is produced by the DTV Audio Group in association with the Sports Video Group (SVG) and sponsored by Calrec, Dolby Laboratories, DTS, Lawo and Linear Acoustic.

Some of today’s brightest minds in television audio will participate in this year’s forum, entitled: “DTV Audio Group Forum: The Implications of Streamed Content Delivery on the Evolution of Television.” This event will take a look at the way content delivery is increasingly following a streamed model and being deployed with very short lead times via a virtualized delivery infrastructure, which allows for further advancements in related broadcast services including audio quality, spatially immersive sound, personalization and bandwidth efficiency. A series of five engaging panels, presentations and discussions will dig deep into each topic, and teach attendees about some of the tools and workflow approaches required to manage and exploit the capabilities of next-generation audio standards and take television audio into the future. Specific discussion topics will include:

This Is Not Your Father’s MVPD: A look into how the transition to IP infrastructure and streamed content is transforming cable and how this facilitates advanced audio codecs

So Long SDI and MADI: IP infrastructure for audio and video contribution within the broadcast plant and in the field

Interactivity, Objects and Spatially Immersive Audio: Mixers and technologists on the migration of object audio from cinema to the small screen and mobile

Object Audio Toolbox: What are the essential monitoring and authoring tools required for object audio production?

It’s All in Your Head: The state of headphone virtualization for immersive audio formats

Commenting on the state of streamed content delivery and the common thread among each forum topic, DTV Audio Group Executive Director Roger Charlesworth notes, “The explosive growth in streamed content delivery over mobile and fixed devices has re-written the playbook for television media distribution. Streaming delivery models are also inexorably finding their way into existing cable services and are being written into next-generation advanced television standards. The migration from traditional broadcasting to an IP stream-based model greatly simplifies implementation, and, combined with tablet-empowered UI, frees distributors to pursue a range of formats and encoding solutions with sophisticated interactive and object-oriented audio services. Our forum at AES137 will address the current and future direction of these trends and their implications for manufacturers, broadcast professionals and end users alike.”
