Linear Acoustic President Tim Carroll to Speak on ‘DTV Audio Myths’ Panel at 125th AES Convention

LANCASTER, Pa. — Sept. 22, 2008 — Linear Acoustic, a manufacturer of customer-centric multichannel sound solutions for digital broadcast, today announced that company president and founder Tim Carroll will be speaking on the “DTV Audio Myths” panel on Saturday, Oct. 4 at 9:00 a.m. at the 125th Audio Engineering Society (AES) convention, to be held Oct. 2-5 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

The AES convention focuses on issues that heavily impact the broadcasting industry, such as loudness, the transition to digital broadcasting, and Internet streaming. This year, the convention features the “DTV Audio Myths” panel to attempt to bring logic and balance to the confusion created by the multitude of audio options in DTV.

As a panelist, Carroll will discuss common misconceptions about the role of audio processing as broadcast stations make the DTV transition. Among the myths he will address are the notions that DTV audio processing is unnecessary, that outdated radio equipment or recording studio gear can meet the needs of DTV, and that many different boxes are required to handle audio, metadata, and encoding.

“It is an honor to be given this opportunity to speak at AES and to help clear up some of the misconceptions about audio processing,” said Carroll. “As broadcasters make the DTV transition, they are discovering that simply addressing loudness issues is not enough to maintain a satisfied viewer base. The purpose of this panel is to show that achieving quality DTV audio requires effective and efficient processing solutions to handle all key aspects of audio, and that these solutions are available and can fit easily into broadcasting operations.”
