The forum, focusing on the shifting landscape in TV audio brought about by the transition to multi-platform mobile and fixed streaming content delivery, has assembled panels and presentations from the very same minds who will plot the strategies that will take television audio into the future.

Selected speakers are scheduled to include:

Kevin Cleary, Senior Audio Producer, ESPN
Jim Starzynski, Director and Principal Audio Engineer, NBCUniversal, and Chairman, DTV Audio Group
Nicolas Tsingos, Senior Platform Engineer, Dolby Laboratories

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) and sponsored by Dale Pro Audio, Dolby Laboratories, DTS, JBL Professional, Linear Acoustic, Studer and Yamaha – “DTV Audio Group Forum: Audio Production and Distribution in an Evolving Television Delivery Landscape” will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by advanced encoding schemes and to debate whether ubiquitous mobile and over-the-top content delivery demands a retrenchment to more limited audio or could lead to further audio advances. The discussion will also address the long-term implications of mobile data’s inevitable annexation of available broadcast spectrum and the resulting impact on wireless production, and will once again revisit the challenges of producing multichannel music for television.

“What we’ve done is reached out to the key innovators and leaders across the spectrum of broadcast television audio, from the networks, the programs, the facilities and the manufacturers who are deeply involved in charting the course of television sound into the future,” states DTV Audio Group Executive Director Roger Charlesworth. “These are the people who are asking and answering the questions about the future.”

Those questions and others will be addressed by panels with considerable technical star power. After a keynote address from Tom Sahara, Vice President of Operations and Technology at Turner Sports and Sports Video Group Chairman, they will include:
