Leading audio engineers and consultants to address impact of immersive technologies at SVGE summit

The Ray Dolby Theatre in Dolby's premises will host the SVG Europe summit on 10 November.

The Ray Dolby Theatre in Dolby’s premises will host the SVG Europe summit on 10 November.

The inaugural SVG Europe/Dolby Next Generation Audio Summit on November 10 will include a session examining the practical impact on workflows of immersive and personalised audio technologies. Although primarily an invite-only event, an extremely limited number of places are now available for this far-reaching summit.

There is no doubt that NGA is set to deliver an audio experience for viewers that is every bit as compelling as the 4K one will be for the visual. But for those at the ‘sharp end’ of production, it will mean some new challenges – revised methodologies for sound engineers and additional integration issues for broadcasters and SI/OB providers among them. One of the day’s key sessions will examine some of these challenges and consider how much of a ‘skills shortage’ remains to be addressed.

The session will be moderated by Roger Charlesworth, Independent Consultant, and DTV Audio Group, Executive Director. Panellists include: Paul Fournier, N.E.P. UK, Head of Sound; Dr. Rob Oldfield, University of Salford, Audio Research Consultant; Pieter Schillebeeckx, TSL Products, Product Director; and Simon Tuff, BBC, Principal Technologist.

A very limited number of places are available on a selection-only basis, so please contact SVG Europe Managing Editor David Davies if you are interested in attending ([email protected]).
